Conductor Analysis Technologies announces the shipment of a second generation OM Thermal Stress System to Robisan Laboratory located in Indianapolis, Indiana. This system builds on the earlier version developed more than 8 years ago with updated technology which performs reflow simulation fully compliant with IPC TM-650 Method 2.6.27.
According to Lance Auer, Engineering Fellow at CAT, the system will be widely available to the printed circuit industry since there is no large price tag associated with its acquisition. It is available on a lease/cost-per-cycle basis to circuit board manufacturers and for sale to qualified OEMs.

Members of the House and Senate don’t usually act until they get worried about being voted out of office, so pardon me if I’m not ready to sing “Happy Days Are Here Again” just yet. But this is still really good news; the politicians are on the record now, and we can hold them accountable.
