Back in 2010, a group of leading test equipment vendors planned a new forum to present the latest technological advances in electronics testing, establishing ElectroTestExpo – a co-operative event aimed at hardware design & production test engineers seeking information on the latest tool developments designed to make their jobs easier.

ElectroTestExpo is now the UK’s only dedicated board test, inspection, device programming and debug event for electronics professionals. One of its organisers, James Stanbridge, UK & Ireland Regional Manager at JTAG Technologies, previews this year’s upcoming event...

Originally hosted at the renowned Bletchley Park, centre of engineering excellence, home of British codebreaking during WWII and one of the birthplaces of modern information technology, more recently, the event has toured the country, taking its wealth of knowledge, informative seminars and interesting exhibits to fresh audiences each year. This year’s event will take place on 26th March 2018 at Keele Hall on the Keele University campus, close to excellent transport infrastructure links from the Midlands and the North West of England and Wales.

Now in its 9th year, ElectroTestExpo highlights the importance of testing, facilitating the free exchange of information among professional engineers involved in the design, manufacture and test of printed circuit boards and electronic products.

The event combines an exhibition featuring more than a dozen test equipment specialists, including JTAG Technologies, Pickering Interfaces, Viavi Solutions, Adlink, Amfax, TTid, MAC Panel, Pico Technology, Elite Interfaces, TestWorks and Yelo – alongside a seminar programme focusing on the latest developments in test technologies. It is aimed at electronics engineers interested in ‘board bring-up’, hardware validation and production testing.

On show at the event will be a wide selection of test, measurement and inspection instruments and technologies from right across the spectrum, ranging from oscilloscopes, RF generators, logic analysers and other benchtop tools, through to integrated production test systems based on advanced technologies that include AOI systems, flying-probe testers, mass interconnect systems, DFT (design for testing) analysis software, PXI systems, and JTAG/boundary-scan testers and programmers.

The show’s informative free seminar program will also offer added value for engineers seeking the latest technical information in test and inspection technologies, covering many aspects of test throughout the product lifecycle. Delegates will be able to select from talks on JTAG/Boundary-scan, ATE Building, signal switching and high-integrity mass interconnection systems. In addition to seminars, experts in most aspect of electronics test will be on hand – and only too willing to share their knowledge.

ElectroTestExpo is funded by a co-operative of T&M equipment vendors, making it free-to-attend (including refreshments) for end-users and customers, and open to all engineering professionals. However, spaces are limited, so please get your application in early. For further information and to book your place, please contact Nick Hickford ( or James Stanbridge ( – or simply visit
