Intrinsic Quality has recently become a member of the Teradyne Support Network (TSN). They have been serving Teradyne customers with fixtures and programs for over 25 years. The Teradyne/GenRad products that Intrinsic Quality supports include the GR228X, TestStation, LH, LX, TestStation Duo, and the TestStation TSR with test innovations such as boundary-scan, OpensXpress, and flash programming.
The TSN is designed to assist manufacturers find support products and services for Teradyne in-circuit testers (ICT), functional test equipment, and other systems. The network consists of over 50 companies offering expertise on various Teradyne equipment and programming. These individually approved providers offer assured quality and support.
I spoke with Intrinsic Quality president Larry Raymond and he said, “Becoming a member of the Teradyne Support Network is a welcomed opportunity for us.” He went on, “This designation is the result of a commitment we’ve made towards excellence in programming and fixture services. We look forward to continuing to provide quality turn-key solutions for our customers using Teradyne and GenRad in-circuit test equipment. “
In-circuit test is a means of testing individual components on a printed circuit board to ensure the quality of a circuit board's build. Teradyne test equipment utilizes bed of nails testing through either press down or vacuum actuated fixtures. Teradyne in-circuit testers can perform a variety of measurements and tests including tests for shorts, opens, resistance, capacitance, and others. In-circuit test is often considered one of the most thorough production tests available for circuit board assemblies.
Intrinsic Quality offers Teradyne ICT fixture services including fixture wiring, engineering and design. They also offer test development and debug for GenRad-Teradyne ICT solutions using functional test with ICT, frequency measurement, and ATE training and on-site install.
In 1985 Intrinsic Quality began as a business dedicated to providing programming and fixtures for GenRad automatic test equipment. Since then, Intrinsic Quality has expanded its business model. In addition to offering in-circuit test programs and fixtures, they also now offer functional test fixtures, systems, and other test related products and services.
Like Intrinsic Quality, Teradyne has experienced significant growth since its beginning. Founded in 1960, the company started out in a shop above a Boston hotdog stand selling diode testers. However, their business was destined to expand. In 2002 Teradyne purchased GenRad. A few years later additional business acquisitions included Eagle Test Systems and Nextest Systems. Teradyne currently takes in over a billion dollars in revenue annually.
Teradyne continues to offer support on GenRad equipment. Teradyne and GenRad products are used to test semiconductors, circuit assemblies, telephone lines, networks, computerized telephone systems, and software. These testers are used in the defense, military, computing, electronics, medical and other technological industries.
The Teradyne Support Network is a welcome addition to Intrinsic Quality’s other strategic alliances, which include providing tech and sales support for SMH’s FlashRunner, and FEASA LED analyzers. Intrinsic Quality is also a XJTAG Technology Partner, providing test solutions and services with the XJTAG Development and Test System.
