Practical Components Inc., a leading supplier of dummy components, will feature its new Amkor PoP stacked packages, including the new TMV PoP, along with its full line of dummy component packages in Booth #538 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28 - March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

Practical Components will introduce a new test board for its dummy (mechanical sample) version of Amkor’s cutting-edge 0.3 mm pitch CVBGA. Amkor’s new semiconductor device is a wafer-scale package in a miniature package, which is suitable for installation in surface mount technology (SMT). Amkor’s ChipArray® range of packages consists of laminate-based ball grid array (BGA) packages that are compatible with established SMT mounting processes.

The CVBGA368-8 mm Evaluation Board is ideal for testing, evaluating and qualifying this fine-pitch technology. For this package, the board size is 77x132 mm, 1 mm thick and features four layers with 15 pads. It is offered with OSP, ImAg, & ENIG finishes.

The new B-52 CRET (Cleanliness and Residue Evaluation Test) Kit is designed to help determine the ionic cleanliness of the manufacturing process. The test boards and components follow guidelines associated with the IPC-B-52 Test Vehicle.

The WLP (wafer chip size package) and the OmQFM (open molded Quad Flat Pack) also will be on display. New solder training kits and boards, such as the PCB250 14mm TMV Drop Test Board, the FusionQuad® Thermal Cycle and Drop Test Kits and an IPC/WHMA-A620 Compliant Wire Harness Kit, will be displayed at the show.  Practical Components’ training kits and boards provide tremendous savings and jump-start productivity.

Meet company representatives in Booth #538 for a copy of Practical Components’ new catalog, ideal for anyone involved in PCB assembly, training, soldering and surface mount technology. The new catalog is designed to help engineers quickly find the key products needed to qualify their technology, train and grow their businesses.
