1999-12-01 Using in-line inspection to improve PCB assembly yields
Identifying defects in your process and improving product quality calls for a suitable pre-flow in-line component inspection system. While choosing a system, keep in mind your specific process needs, inspection accuracy and repeatibility requirements, and last but not the least, its robustness vis--vis actual operating conditions.
2009-02-16 Uncovering static analysis pitfalls
Perhaps the most surprising thing about static analysis is not that it can detect memory leaks, buffer overflows, or incorrect pointer assignments at compile time, but rather that users of static analysis will often fail to fix such detected defects.
