ICT – In Circuit Component Tester

WHAT IS ICT?

ICT (In-Circuit Component Tester) is an example of white box testing where an electrical probe tests a populated printed circuit board (PCB), checking for shorts, opens, resistance, capacitance, and other basic quantities which will show whether the assembly was correctly fabricated. It may be performed with a bed of nails type test fixture and specialist test equipment, or with a fixtureless in-circuit test setup.

ICT versus Flying Probe method a much faster test device. Once the measurement has started, no mechanical movement takes place. This completes the measurements very quickly.

ICT versus Automated Optical Inspection method produces much clearer results because it conducts the electrical test. The AOI method is only a visual test. In the ICT method, the components on the system are electrically tested.

The ICT test method is really important for firms, especially those who are engaged in mass production and want to save time.
