Gardien Japan Enhances Test Capabilities with Quad Density Tester


Reading time ( words)

Gardien, an international provider of independent testing and quality assurance solutions to the PCB industry with operations in 5 countries, has announced the addition of the Kaima GUQMM Quad Density Tester, at its Tokyo Service Centre. No machines bigger than this Quad Density Tester are currently operational in the Japanese market.

Key features of the GUQMM Quad Density Tester

  • Grid density: 50mil
  • Test board area: 488mm x 406mm, the largest test area for the above density in operation in Japan
  • Minimum diameter of pin supported:  0.15mm (3.8mil)

This allows for features with a minimum pitch (pin-to-pin distance) of 10mil (254 µm).

Improved test times

Previously, the Tokyo Service Centre relied on testing with Double Density Grid Testers. The introduction of the Quad Density Grid Tester has significantly improved test times.

Equally importantly, the transition from Double Density Testers to Quad Density Testers is seamless, thanks to the easy reusability of most parts.

Commenting on the availability of the more advanced equipment at its facilities, Masayuki Komatsu, Vice President of Gardien Japan, said, “We are pleased to enhance our capabilities which will most certainly contribute to and benefit our customers.

“The addition of the GUQMM Quad Density Tester positions us uniquely in the market to deliver unmatched testing service.”

How to Feed Test Data Back to Engineering for Process Improvement

08/01/2019 | Todd Kolmodin, Gardien Services
Some people think of the PCB manufacturing process as a black box: design data goes to the manufacturer (fabrication house), and magically, the finished PCB is produced. While it may have been like that in the past, in actuality, fabricating PCBs today is quite a ballet of processes.

Kelvin Characterization to Accurately Predict Copper Thickness

07/01/2019 | Article by Brandon Sherrieb, Integrated Test Corporation
A few years ago at Integrated Test Corporation, we found that the reaction plan for void fallout at electrical test was ineffective and not standardized. Like many PCB manufacturing facilities (including a Sanmina shop that I used to work at), the reaction plan consisted of cross section analysis to determine the void type.
