Amitron Selects 8-Probe Tester From MicroCraft

Reading time ( words)

Earlier this year, MicroCraft installed its latest and fastest flying probe tester, E8M6151, at Amitron’s facility in Chicago, Illinois.

After benchmarking the E8M against other competitors, Amitron chose to continue their long partnership with MicroCraft. “As component densities increase and pad sizes continue to decrease, high accuracy and high-speed testing become critical for PCB manufacturers. MicroCraft’s E8 demonstrates these traits and comes with MicroCraft’s long track record of reliability,” said Tyson Mortimer, Amitron president.

MicroCraft recently finished construction of its new factory and headquarters in Okayama, Japan, late last year. “We now have manufacturing, R&D, sales and administration all under one roof, which has helped immensely by allowing us to quickly develop new products and improve our lead times on equipment,” said MicroCraft President and CEO Yorio Hidehira.

PCB Surface Preparation Before Solder Mask on Non-copper Finishes

04/08/2020 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
A circuit board is made of copper. Usually, final finishes are applied after the solder mask process. In some cases, for special applications, the final finish may be applied before solder mask. In this case, we have solder mask on ENIG or galvanic nickel-gold. It is also possible to have tin or tin-lead under solder mask; this was an old technology that no longer plays a role today.
