Bay Area Circuits Selects Seica Flying-Probe PCB Test System

Reading time ( words)

Bay Area Circuits, Inc. has purchased a Rapid 270 bare-board tester as announced by Seica Inc's sales representative in Northwestern USA, Zero Defects International. This tester will augment a Seica S240 fully automated tester which has been in use at Bay Area Circuits for the past four years. The Rapid 270 vertical system is equipped with 8 independent measurement probes enabling high speed testing and was delivered to Bay Area Circuits pre-configured for full automation functionality.

“The performance and reliability of our existing Seica S240 were key factors in selecting the Seica 270 to expand our testing capabilities,” said Stephen Garcia, President of Bay Area Circuits. “Both Seica and Zero Defects have provided us with an outstanding level of service and support over the years and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them both.”

Flex Standards Update With Nick Koop

11/21/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
This month, I interviewed Nick Koop—director of flex technology at TTM Technologies, a veteran “flex guy” and instructor, and a leader of several IPC flex standards committees. Nick provides an update for the committees he’s involved with and discusses some of the challenges that he sees as more designers enter the world of flex.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.

The Shape of Things to Come: Curved, Flexible, Stretchable, and Three-Dimensional Electronics

12/27/2018 | Corné Rentrop, HOLST CENTRE
The seamless integration of electronics into flexible, curved, and even stretchable surfaces is being requested for several markets, such as automotive (dashboards, lighting, sensors), smart buildings (lighting facades, air quality, solar panels), medical (health patches, X-ray, analysis), and smart clothing (position tracking, sports).
