Conductor Analysis Technologies, Inc. Announces Shipments of Second Gen OM Thermal Stress Systems


Reading time ( words)

Conductor Analysis Technologies announces the shipment of two second generation OM Thermal Stress Systems. One system was shipped to Preferred Testing Laboratory, located in Moorpark, CA; the other to Summit Interconnect Inc, located in Anaheim, CA.

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. Systems are available on a lease/cost-per-cycle basis to circuit board manufacturers and for sale to qualified OEMs.
 
According to Lance Auer, engineering fellow at CAT, the system at Summit is the first of the new generation to be located at a printed circuit board manufacturer. The systems are intended to be readily available to the printed circuit board industry to enable the proper testing of microvias.

Test and Inspection: Competitive Advantage and Cost of Doing Business

In this interview, Charlie Capers of Zentech breaks down the changing requirements he’s seeing in test and inspection in the industry, and the growing importance of investing in testing for the future growth and success of your company. According to Capers, "When you collect statistics on defects, you will start to see a trend that says, for example, we’ve got a lot of shorts and opens, meaning that our solder paste process is not tight. If you’re collecting statistics and really studying them, you will see trends in your processes."

Test and Inspection: Far Beyond Opens and Shorts

Gardien Vice President Todd Kolmodin talks about test and inspection market drivers from his perspective as a test service provider. Andy Shaughnessy and Happy Holden go down the “microvia rabbit hole” with Todd, as well as explore how OEM design requirements are driving test and inspection functionality and processes. When board layer counts and feature densities force longer test times, the tradeoffs to profitability for manufacturers become time and accuracy. Minimizing time while maximizing accuracy calls for new methods, which Kolmodin explains.

Alex Stepinski: A Philosophical View

"My philosophy is to rely more on sensors throughout the process to measure things non-destructively, then build a model for how you’re going to perform, and just validate against the model," said Alex Stepinski. "It’s the next step slowly happening worldwide. For instance, we’ve had 2D AOI for many years. Sometimes, this is complemented with electrical tests. Now, you start to see more 3D AOI happening. You see them putting more sensors on the AOI equipment for direct measurement. Then, you also have the traditional signal integrity testing."
