Tooling & Fixturing

For all types of applications


Supply of various types of fixtures: pneumatic actuation, vacuum or manual operation, inline or offline

Development of fixtures for various systems: Checksum; Goepel; Tri; Digital Test; Teradyne; Aeroflex; Spea; Eiit; IPTE; customer FCT and ISP systems

Precision mobile plates, Zoom technology and fine pitch probing

Development and manufacture of customized projects

Integration of different technologies

Boundary Scan (Digital/Hybrid Tests)

Controlar has extensive know-how in Boundary Scan Test and is an official partner of Goepel ( More than 30 turn-key test systems with combined Checksum + Goepel platforms have been delivered over the past years.

LED Testing

An ICT system has the capacity of executing electrical tests (diode) – LED, but often optical analysis is required, which is out of the scope of ICT systems. To overcome this, Controlar became an official partner of FEASA ( and uses FEASA equipment to perform LED and displays analysis, fully integrated in ICT systems.

ISP (In-System Programming)

The programming of In-Circuit or In-System (ISP) devices eliminates limitations associated with traditional programming devices (on-socket or pre-programmed). ISP delivers benefits to in-board and system level design, manufacturing and programming processes.

Controlar develops and supplies tooling and test fixtures:

  • for a vast application field: ICT (In-Circuit Tests), Functional tests, Flash Programming, EoL (End-of-Line) tests, etc.
  • for all currently used handling systems in the market: inline or offline, mechanical, pneumatic or vacuum operation
  • from simple mechanical fixtures, with a few hundred probes and low production volumes, up to highly complex fixtures with thousands of probes, double side probing, double actuation, etc.

Fixture Validation – Probe Impact Analysis

As standard in our fixture production validations, Controlar uses microscopes to execute Probe Impact Analysis on the PCB. After the fixture assembly but before wiring is initiated, a preliminar study is conducted to validate probe plate drilling.
When the fixture is completely ready, a new verification is performed. The results are recorded and included in the fixture documentation.

Turn-key projects

Whether you require fixtures, or the complete turn-key project (fixture + application), Controlar has the capability to:

  • develop ICT applications in several platforms, including MDA, Testjet, Digital/Hybrid tests;
  • perform Boundary Scan, Functional tests, LED tests;
  • integrate customized circuits for signal conditioning, noise filtering, discharge, watchdog, loads, etc.;
  • integrate additional test equipment such as LED analyzers, Flash programmers, communication devices, etc.;
  • tune and support production start and ramp up at customer’s facilities.
