  • (2) Keyence VHX-7000 4K digital microscopes
  • (1) Struers Tegramin-30 automatic micro section grinder/polisher
  • (3) Allied high tech twin prep 5x micro section grinder/polishers
  • Conductor Analysis Technologies OM Thermal Stress System/D-coupon tester with reflow simulation & thermal shock capabilities

Vice President & General Manager Jack Evans said, “We’re very pleased with the way the new laboratory turned out. The added space and capabilities will allow us to better serve our customers while positioning the Anaheim division for several more years of growth.”

New Methods for Quantifying PCB Design Weaknesses and Manufacturing Challenges

11/18/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
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."
