Sanmina Corporation, a leading integrated manufacturing solutions company that manufactures some of the world’s most complex and innovative electronic, optical and mechanical products, announced that it has bolstered its backplane testing capabilities with new technology from RoBAT, a leading provider of automated testing solutions. The addition of the RoBAT RCI technology to Sanmina’s facilities in California and Mexico will accelerate time to market for backplane customers in the communications, datacenter, defense and aerospace and storage markets.

Sanmina’s site in San Jose, California has implemented the latest generation RoBAT RCI machine as part of its continued focus on extensive product development and new product introduction processes for backplane solutions. Sanmina’s site in Guadalajara, Mexico has also implemented the technology as part of its strategy to provide customers with high speed assembly and test in a low-cost region. The technology strengthens Sanmina’s testing portfolio that also includes RoBAT S1 and RoBAT RXI technology.

“For 40 years, Sanmina has provided advanced backplane assembly, programming and testing services and we’ve collaborated closely with RoBAT on many successful test platform projects,” said Alex Scroppo, SVP of Mechanical and Electronic Specialty Components at Sanmina. “Advanced backplane technology is essential for enabling high speed communications and we’re excited to add new capabilities that accelerate the time to market for our customers.”

04/19/2021 | Hu Yang, Zhongtai Securities Research Center
According to the CCL Association, copper foil accounts for the largest proportion of raw materials (traditional CCL uses epoxy resin, glass fiber cloth and copper as raw materials). Copper foil in thin plate accounts for about 30% of the overall cost; in thick plate copper accounts for 50%. In CCL production, using Shengyi Technology and Chaohua Technology as examples, the cost of raw materials accounts for about 88% of the total cost, with labor accounting for about 4%. Other costs such as equipment depreciation account for about 8%.
