FREMONT, CA — January 2014 —Datest, a recognized leader in PCBA testing, test engineering, and inspection services, commemorates 30 years in business in 2014. Over the past 30 years, the company has added a range of world-class testing equipment, while building a reputation as the industry experts for testing and training. Additionally, Datest is innovating bonepile recovery, rehabilitation and analysis of failed PCBAs to deliver key results to the industry with its award-winning Bonepile Rehabilitation Service.

“Our services have significantly evolved in pace with our industry over the past 30 years,” acknowledges Robert Boguski, Datest’s President. “What started as a small ICT programming operation in 1984 has grown to today’s multi-platform, multi-skillset test engineering facility, offering a wide variety of test and inspection applications for diverse and demanding requirements. For example, where once we handled only the front end of board production testing, by means of ICT of product fresh ‘off-the-line,’ today we handle the back end as well through our failure analysis and bonepile rehabilitation services. Our willingness to evolve, adapt and grow with ever-changing industry requirements positions Datest well for the next 30 years.”
