TeVe Logo


A cloud-computing solution that enables you to verify that boards have been correctly tested across a global manufacturing supply chain.


TeVe ODSTeVe Logo

TeVe is a cloud-computing solution that reduces the possibility of shipping a board that has not been tested correctly and the costs associated with external failures in the field.

Test Verify On-Demand (TeVe ODS) is a cloud-based test verification solution that checks if a serialized printed circuit board (PCB) has passed all electrical test steps on the shop floor in the right sequence. TeVe ODS can be used to interlock process steps on the shop floor or across the supply chain that need to verify electrical test has been performed correctly. TeVe ODS helps to prevent untested products from leaving factories across the global manufacturing supply chain, which can lead to field failures and increased warranty costs. 

TeVe ODS works in conjunction Shop Floor Connect (SFC), a web-based data collection framework that provides real-time access to test even data from factories in the supply chain. Test data colleced by SFC contains all the information needed to validate electrical test events TeVe PCB Scan(e.g. date, time, test status, process step, site location, etc.). SFC is responsible for automatically transporting and centralizing all test data collected from the manufacturing supply chain to TeVe in the cloud.

TeVe can be accessed from a standard web browser, so there is no need to load software on client-side hardware to use the application. The TeVe configuration interface is used to set-up the solution to perform test verification on specific boards and process steps on the shop floor. Deploying TeVe on the shop floor is easy as scanning stations only require a monitor, barcode scanner and access to the Internet.

TeVe ODS supports several use-models:

  • End-of-Line – test validation is performed before packing/shipping in the production process to confirm a board has been properly tested. 

  • In-Line – test validation is performed programmatically (via an API) or by a manual scan before a production process step where it is critical to ensure all testing has been completed.

  • Incoming Inspection – used to interlock sites by verify that PCBs received from a supplier have been properly tested before final assembly.


Key Features

  • Cloud-Computing Solution — Deployment is fast with no need for IT resources and system administration. TeVe’s user interface runs in a standard web browser, making it possible for test verification to be performed at local or remote sites.

  • Flexible Use-Model Insert test verification steps within the production process or across the global supply chain, at the end-of-the-line in manufacturing, programmatically before electrical test (i.e. functional test) or at PCB incoming inspection before final assembly to eliminate test escapes.

  • Fast Access to Shop Floor Data TeVe works seamlessly with Derby’s Shop Floor Connect (SFC), a real-time test data collection framework, so test verfication can be performed in "near" real-time on the shop floor or at remote sites. TeVe ODS can be added to an existing Derby solution with SFC in a few hours!

  • Programmatic VerificationTeVe includes an HTTP/REST Application Programming Interface (API) that enables test programs to make a programmatic call in real-time to verify if a serialized board has passed all previous electrical test steps..

  • Built-In Database TeVe's internal database has been optimized for retrieval speed to minimize scan latency.
    TeVe PassThe TeVe database is self-maintaining, which ensures that only the data needed for test verication is kept on-line and system administration is minimized.

  • Configurable Set-up The TeVe graphical user interface guides the system administrator through the process of setting up a specific test flow and sequence for each PCB assembly that requires test validation.

  • TeVe Data Logging TeVe has the ability to create log records each time a TeVe scan event occurs. TeVe log records can be analyzed to monitor the quality of the test process flow so improvements can be made if test escapes are occurring.


Test Verify (TeVe) provides the “peace of mind” that products being shipped have been properly tested and that the risk of expensive external failures in the field has been minimized.
