Conductor Analysis Technologies (CAT) has announced the sale of two OM Thermal Stress Systems to TTM Technologies, Sterling Virginia. “This is a significant step in the adoption of reflow simulation for bare board acceptance by the industry,” said Tim Estes, Chief Technology Officer at CAT. 

The OM Thermal Stress System is a cost-effective performance-based reliability test methodology which performs both convection reflow assembly simulation per IPC TM-650 2.6.27 and air-to-air thermal cycling per IPC TM-650 2.6.7.2. The system is configured to perform 230°C and 260°C reflow simulation, as well as -55° to +125°C thermal cycling.

According to Nick Meeker, Chief Operating Officer at CAT, “We have installed a number of test system at OEMs and test laboratories, however this is the first installation at a printed circuit board manufacturer. The systems are scheduled to be installed and operational by mid-August.”

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.
