Reading time ( words)

Technic is pleased to announce the installation of the TechniPad Electroless Palladium process AT7015 at Gold Plating Services (GPS) in Santa Clara, California. GPS is a contract plating service specializing in precious metal plating for the printed circuit board industry.

With the addition of the electroless palladium to the existing TechniPad ENIG process, GPS is capable of providing a service exceeding both IPC 4552 for ENIG and IPC 4556 for ENEPIG. Both processes provide a reliable solderable and aluminium bondable surface. The electroless Pd provides a deposit for gold wire bondability as well as contact applications. The AT7015 has been engineered to provide the stability necessary for quick turn applications under all loading conditions.

New Methods for Quantifying PCB Design Weaknesses and Manufacturing Challenges

Gerry Partida explains, "The industry is at a new point in evolving how we look at building boards. Our industry has historically built boards and then tried to find a test for them. Then, when they found a test for it, they figured out that it needed to be analyzed before they built the board. We did this with electrical test. We built boards and down the road, as people started asking, “Why am I buying bad boards? We should electrically test them,” electrical test was introduced, reluctantly, into the test part of manufacturing printed circuit boards by suppliers or fabricators. Then they embraced it. But when we started testing boards, we did comparison tests."
