Leading PCB service and equipment supplier, Viking Test will be exhibiting at this year’s productronica in Munich, Germany. Viking will be demonstrating the UCE Nano precision etching machine, with vacuum technology which eliminates puddling and greatly improves etching uniformity on ultra-fine structures, complete with automated loading and unloading. Also featured will be the Sowotech automatic hot-roll cut-sheet dry film laminator, with full auto-load and unload, and the Pluritec solder mask spray coating system for automatic in line production.
To learn more about Viking Test and the products they offer, visit them on the show floor in Hall B3 Booth 444.

Do you spend time, as I do, musing on the language of PCBs? We have developed our own lexicon to convey as much by picture, as by word, what exactly we mean.

With the four-wire and four-terminal flying probe test method, voids in the holes formed in the PCB due to process differences, thin copper, and poor conduction due to residual adhesive after laser drilling of the HDI board can be detected, and the circuit board guide can be solved. With the development of multilayer, high-density PCB layout, four-wire four-terminal flying probe testing will play an increasingly important role.

In the ultracompetitive electronics manufacturing space, companies that don’t continually evolve and invest in new technologies run the risk of being left behind. At the recent EIPC summer conference, many next-generation processes and technologies were discussed and even put on display.
