Reading time ( words)

Rigid-flex circuit board manufacturer, Printed Circuits, Inc. has recently purchased two flying probe testers from CLTech.

The CL Tech FP8 offers high pot test capabilities with pad sizes down to 37.5µ (1.5 mil) at a pitch down to 100µ (4.0 mil).

The CL Tech FP3+ machine offers high pot test capabilities with pad sizes down to 87.5µ (3.5 mil) at a pitch down to 200µ (8 mil).

Printed Circuit Inc. President and CEO, Ken Tannehill commented, "Purchasing two new flying probe testers will add capacity and capabilities to our electrical test department. They will help us accomplish the finer pitched work being designed into some of our customers’ rigid flex and complex flex designs, while reducing our cycle time. This will augment our efforts to provide our customers with improved lead time, quality and throughput, while reducing their over-all costs.”

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

06/03/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Things are heating up in the world of PCB design and manufacturing as well. In the past week, we published quite a bit of news—some good, some not so good. Some of the news is mixed, as we see with the EMS industry shipments rising YOY in April, but falling from the previous month. It’s nice to see NASA investing in American small businesses, but they didn’t really have a choice, did they?

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

03/04/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In the news this week we found a synchrony of topics. Much of the world is aware of the speaking points from U.S. President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address this past Tuesday. In that speech, President Biden talked prominently about U.S. legislation in process to bring more technology manufacturing back to the states. In fact, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger was not only an invited guest, but was referred to directly in the speech as a positive example. I can only assume that President Biden meant that moment to be a motivator for other CEOs in the industry.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Considering Supply Chain and Defense

01/25/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Continuing the highly successful series of EIPC’s Technical Snapshots, and featuring a programme that attracted a record attendance, the 14th online event was held on January 19. The opening presentation came from the ever-cheerful Didrik Bech, of Elmatica, who promised to provide thoughts and ideas about how to secure the supply chain to ensure compliance, not only to reduce the risks but also to increase the opportunities. Stan Heltzel from ESA Materials and Processes Section in the Netherlands gave a fascinating detailed insight into ESA’s approach to microvia reliability. And Liisa Hakola, senior scientist and project manager at the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland gave the final presentation on how sustainability creates new opportunities for electronics industry.
