IEC develops test process for fiber optics products

Feb. 26, 2001
Feb. 26, 2001--IEC Electronics Corp. announced it has developed a test process that will allow testing of fiber optic products for the data communications industry.

IEC Electronics Corp. (NASDAQ: IECE) announced it has developed a test process that will allow testing of fiber optic products for the data communications industry. Test Engineers at IEC built a test fixture that works as an interface between in-circuit test equipment and a radio frequency (RF) based data communications product. The DC (direct current) Parametric Test takes the place of more costly and time-consuming functional test, while getting similar results.

The test is performed on printed circuit board assemblies with ceramic ball grid arrays (CBGA's) that do not have bed of nails access. It has enabled IEC to increase its manufacturing partnership with JDS Uniphase, which started in the spring of 2000, and is now at an annual rate of over $50 million. IEC has been providing JDS Uniphase with services ranging from test to prototype, high and medium volume assembly of boards used in the cable TV and data communications industries.
