Multek certified on Shocking Technologies’ unique ESD protection solution

Jun 16, 2011 | Shocking Technologies announced that Multek, a wholly owned subsidiary of Flextronics, has been certified to manufacture printed circuit boards (PCBs) with Shocking Tech’s innovative Voltage Switchable Dielectric™ (VSD) material. The certification is the result of extensive collaboration between the two companies and successful testing of Shocking Tech’s XStatic™ VSD material into PCBs manufactured by Multek.

Shocking Technologies, Inc.

A Voltage Switchable Dielectric™ (VSD™) material is a polymer nano-composite that functions as an insulator (dielectric) during normal circuit operation and becomes conductive when the voltage increases beyond a predefined threshold. The material becomes an insulator again after the voltage drops back below the threshold to normal operating levels. This unique property, coupled with the ability to tailor the voltage threshold, opens up several new areas in electronics.

CONSIDER MACHINE VISION FOR SURFACE MEASUREMENT OBSOLETE

Jun 14, 2011 | The white light axial chromatism technique utilized by Nanovea’s 3D Non Contact Profilometers has become widely known as a vital bench top research and verification tool. It is now the Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) environments that have begun to acknowledge Nanovea’s superior capability. Unlike the traditional vision and laser systems that typically sacrifice one feature for another, speed or resolution, Nanovea provides both. Vision and laser systems also have very limited automated surface measurement options, where as Nanovea’s system provides a wide range including: Profile, Dimension, Roughness, Shape & Form, Flatness & Planarity, Volume Area, Step-Height Depth and Thickness. And keep in mind, the technique utilized by Nanovea’s inspection system has the superior ability to measure nearly any material surface and zero influence from sample reflectivity or absorption.
