High Performance Populated Board Testing with
Expansion Capabilities

Hioki PCB and substrate inspection equipment leverages our core competency in high precision component testing. In populated board production settings where improving productivity is key, even small time losses are unacceptable. The 1220 series provide a single solution for jobs that previously required multiple measuring instruments, featuring a compact PCI bus that delivers a dramatic speed boost of 150%.

Key Features
• Extensive test functionality in a single tabletop box (1220-50)
• Detection of electrolytic capacitor and IC reverse insertion (optional feature)
• Macro testing for increasing test efficiency
• Extensive range of system configurations

HIOKI ATE LINEUP [ The Power to Connect ]

The power to connect that Hioki’s printed circuit board testing systems deliver is the power to connect to the future. The ability to continue to support this rich and satisfying lifestyle together with customers is a small part of what testing systems can do.
At Hioki, we strive on a daily basis to improve the contact performance–the power to connect with circuit boards–that is the lifeblood of electrical testing and to seek out the true potential of that capability. This is the path that we follow.

FULL Lineup

Available in desktop, space-saving, and inline models to accommodate the full range of site needs.

LED color recognition and brightness detection

The 1220 incorporates a power source unit, allowing it to perform mounting tests and LED tests with a single fixture.
This single-device solution not only reduces cycle times, but also aids in post-testing analysis due to the ability to consolidate data.

For people considering parts average testing (PAT)

The 1220 brings the PAT process to testing of printed circuit boards and adds a rank detection function for ICT in order to improve quality. A rank detection flag is added to outliers (abnormal values) that are separated from the parent population. The decision of whether to perform rank detection can be added on a component-by-component basis.

Point information view (UA1782)

Do you check data by looking at probe tips and asking yourself whether they’ll strike components on the board or not?

Where are test fixture pins indicating fail results contacting the board?” It’s easy to identify the locations of defective pins and to search for components by using the Point Viewer while testing is underway or the while the Fail Viewer UA1782 is offline.


[Program,Test,Visualize] Populated Board Electrical Testing System

Hioki can prepare populated board testing system benchmarks if provided with the three types of data listed below.
[Program] FIT-LINE UA1780
[Visualize] FAIL VISUALIZER UA1782
When testing populated boards, it’s essential to create accurate data, measure boards accurately, and identify defective locations accurately.
