ICT / FCT Contact Probes

FEINMETALL offers a wide range of finest contact probes, up to the limits - and beyond.

While ICT (in-circuit test) contact probes are used to test components, FCT (functional test) contact probes can be used to test entire assemblies.

ICT Contact Probes

During in-circuit testing (ICT), each component of an electronic assembly is checked for faults. Short circuits, interruptions, soldering or component faults are detected and assemblies are rejected according to a go/no-go test.

FCT Contact Probes

During functional testing (FCT), the assemblies are tested completely or in partial areas for the intended operation. The function test of the modules is carried out in the end application or in an environment that simulates the end application.
