atg Luther & Maelzer GmbH will use the IPC APEX  EXPO 2017 to introduce its new A8a Automatic Bare Board Flying Probe Test System to the North American market.

atg A8a:  High Speed – High volume Flying Probe Test  with  Automation

The tester will be on display at the atg Luther & Maelzer Booth #3645 on February 14–16, 2017 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.

"The A8a is atg-LM's latest innovation in high performance, high accuracy automatic flying probe testing," says atg Luther & Maelzer North American Sales Director Klaus Koziol.

The A8a provides the flexibility of flying probe test while delivering high throughput. To achieve high throughput, the key features of the A8a is a new design dual shuttle system which reduces the product exchange time to zero. In addition to superior test speed of up to 140 measurements per second, the A8a provides innovative load/unload and pass/fail sorting for true automatic "lights-out" operation.

Typical features such as high accuracy Kelvin 4 wire, Embedded Component and Latent defect test are available as well as a Tension clamp set up for flexible products.

As automation works its way onto the shop floors, it still struggles to replace humans in the supporting roles, such as designers, purchasers, brokers, and back-office staff. Where automation on the shop floor replaces humans in doing repetitive manual tasks, the supporting roles (at least some of them) require intelligence to understand and utilise information.

I was introduced to liloTree and Chief Scientist Kunal Shah by Joe Fjelstad. It seems this small company (with Intel as part of its pedigree) has developed a novel ENIG process that just may shake up the regular chemistry suppliers. This new process is described as cost-effective and ecofriendly while completely eliminating black pad and brittle solder joints.
