Combining Functional Test and Boundary Test Strategies: Advantages and Techniques
Today's electronic products present test engineers with myriad assembly and test challenges. Boundary scan and functional test are two test methodologies that continue to evolve as products become more complex.

Join Goepel Electronic and Geotest for a free seminar and workshop that reviews the most recent advances in boundary-scan technology and functional test strategies. Learn how you can use boundary-scan test methods not only for structural testing but also as an adjunct to functional testing with the PXI platform. The seminar will include technical demonstrations of boundary-scan tools and functional test development software and hardware.

Regardless of whether you are a new or current user of functional and boundary-scan test strategies, this seminar will offer ideas about how to:
Enhance your functional test coverage using boundary scan
Configure and build functional test systems using PXI
Integrate functional and boundary-scan PXI instrumentation and software

Who should attend:
Engineers who use boundary scan for testing PCB assemblies
Engineers who are interested in using PXI for functional test
Other professionals involved in test and validation

08:30 - 09:00 | Registration (Continental Breakfast)
