In Circuit Test
TestWorks Group offers a full range of In-Circuit Test (ICT) Application and quality engineered Test Fixture solutions, coupled with unbeatable service and support from a team of UK-based electronics experts.
In-Circuit Test (ICT) Programming
With decades of experience in providing in-circuit test solutions, Testworks Group experts are some of the most experienced test development engineers in the UK today.
Developing in-circuit test programs for your new products requires dedicated programming skills and extensive access to ATE systems; both are commodities in short supply in a busy development and manufacturing environment. Supporting a programming test team with only limited access to ATE systems can be an expensive overhead. At TestWorks Group our test programming experts and test development systems can act as a natural extension to your internal resources, providing the flexibility your business needs to meet its day-to-day test requirements as well as assisting with any new ICT programming development projects.
Our ATE programming skills are not all we can offer. Our Design for Test (DFT) strategy analysis, fixture build, contract test and fixture maintenance capabilities means our test engineers can assist your team in providing any number of these related test and programming requirements.
In-Circuit Test Fixtures
Using industry-standard fixture kits, TestWorks Group has full in-house capability to design, customise and wire ICT fixtures, including dual-access requirements where the PCB needs to be probed on both sides, and utilisation of capacitive opens-check probes to aid open-circuit diagnosis for surface-mount device legs.
Our engineers also have extensive experience in ground plane design and wiring and, where signal integrity is critical, the design and implementation of local isolation circuitry fitted as close as possible to the relevant test probes.

Test Fixture Maintenance
In order to get the most out of a test fixture it is important to understand the need for on-going maintenance. Typically, most test fixtures will have moving and mechanical parts, all of which are potentially prone to wear over time. TestWorks Group offers the option of an on-going maintenance support package for all TestWorks fixtures as well as many third party test fixtures. So, regardless of whether you have one test fixture or one hundred that you need maintained, TestWorks Group can provide the on-site service required on a contractual or ad-hoc basis – allowing your business to maximise the efficiency of its test fixtures and removing the risk of significant down time.
