PNC Inc. Invests in LED Laser Direct Imaging system from Miva Technologies

Jun 22, 2017 | This 2000L 2LE model is capable of imaging a maximum size 24” x 24” PC board or film size. With any large format film, positional accuracy can be a challenge but the Miva’s dynamic scaling feature can increase accuracy to minimize tolerance build-ups during the imaging process. Due to Miva’s optical registration system, innerlayer drill break-out will be reduced considerably on densely routed signal layers which will significantly improve yields. For sub-20-mil pitch parts or micro BGAs, a 2−3 mil solder dam will be possible to eliminate bridging during the assembly process.

Micro-Focused IR Thermal Testing with PDR's Focused IR

Jun 20, 2017 | PDR introduces the benchtop based PDR IR-TS One IR Thermal Test System, designed to thermally cycle key critical components and assemblies to detect defects. Using PDR’s unique Non-Destructive Dual Thermal Stress Screening Process, based on a variation on HALT/HASS principles, the system is able to focus the testing on suspected problem areas to safely screen out early field failures caused by design, environmental, production and structural defects.
