When do i need a test socket ?
Test socket, it's just a tool for testing,but when you begin to use it you will love it !
So , when do i need it ?
First: incoming inspection；sometimes we need inspect to purchased IC before use, help to pick up defective product to improve yield. Since we can't through our eye to tell IC quality , so have to use electricity to inspect, even if use normal method to inspect IC electric current,voltage,inductance,resistance ,capacitance, we still cannot completely make sure IC quality; test socket appliance function program can tell you IC quality.
Second: rework inspection; When main board go wrong during production,it's not easy to tell what happened, at this time, if we have a test socket, we can take down IC to inspect whether our IC have wrong.
Third: IC sort, reworked IC maybe damaged during take down, use test socket to separate it, that will be save labour power and material to reduce cost. Such as BGA chip, if you didn't sorted it just take to use, after FCT inspect, you have to take down IC to bake,clear, so many trouble things, and also maybe damage other relate components, use test socket inspection can solve these problem.
From now, we have some some professional equipment to inspect IC, but too expensive, and you need buy another test socket if you have another type IC, hight cost. Our test socket have low cost, short time of delivery, good result of test.
