STI Electronics’ Micro-Coil Spring Array Wins Prestigious Industry Award

Nov 20, 2011

The Micro-Coil Spring Array is an improved alternative to standard rigid arrays to replace the Column Grid Array (solder columns) commonly used on Integrated Circuits (IC) with a very high lead count.

The Micro-Coil Spring Array is an improved alternative to standard rigid arrays to replace the Column Grid Array (solder columns) commonly used on Integrated Circuits (IC) with a very high lead count.

STI Electronics, Inc., a full service organization providing training, electronic and industrial distribution, consulting, laboratory analysis, prototyping, and small- to medium-volume PCB assembly, announces that it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Components for its Micro-Coil Spring Array. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, November 15, 2011 ceremony that took place at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany during Productronica 2011.

"STI is very proud of this award.  We strive daily to provide technological solutions to today’s electronics manufacturing challenges for our customers and this award is proof that we are headed in the right direction,"said David Raby, President/CEO.

The Micro-Coil Spring Array is an improved alternative to standard rigid arrays to replace the Column Grid Array (solder columns) commonly used on Integrated Circuits (IC) with a very high lead count. The Micro-Coil Spring Array was developed by NASA for a higher degree of reliability over conventional Column Grid Arrays and this technology was licensed to STI Electronics Inc. for its commercialization and production capability.

The Micro-Coil Spring Array is a drop-in replacement for BGA Column Grid Array packaging applications that require greater reliability and long-term robustness. Additionally, it is competitively priced to be lower than Column Grid Array solder columns. Production assembly costs also are lower than for manufacturing the Column Grid Array package.

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.


Since 1982, STI Electronics, Inc. (STI) has been the premier full service organization for training, consulting, laboratory analysis, prototyping, and small- to medium-volume PCB assembly in the electronics industry. STI also produces a complete line of solder training kits and training support products. Additionally, the company distributes products for the electronics and industrial markets.
