VJE’s Don Naugler to Discuss X-ray Technology and BGA Inspection at the BEST Tech Symposium

Jul 26, 2012

VJ Electronix, Inc., the leader in rework technologies and global provider of advanced X-ray inspection systems, announces that company President Don Naugler will present at the upcoming “Sharpening Your Tools-Area Array Technology” symposium hosted by BEST, Inc. on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at Arlington Lakes Golf Course in Arlington Heights, IL. Don’s presentation, titled “Evolution of X-ray Technology in the Electronics Industry,” will be held from 10:40-11:30 a.m.

Ever since the adoption of BGA devices, X-ray inspection has become an ever-growing requirement within electronics manufacturing. Solder joints for BGA, CSP and many popular package technologies are not visible using normal optical inspection. X-ray allows the engineer to see behind the package to identify defects and monitor the soldering process.

This paper will introduce basic concepts and review the evolution of X-ray technology. Naugler will review the types of X-ray sources and detectors used and present available technologies (2-D, 3-D, CT) for electronics inspection. He will conclude with a discussion of inspection techniques with a focus on BGA analysis.

Naugler has more than 25 years experience in the electronics/microelectronics industries and spent the last 12 years working with rework and X-ray at SRT/NIS, GenRad, Teradyne and VJ Electronix. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts and a Master’s Degree from Southern New Hampshire University

Seating for the event is limited and tickets are $50 per seat, including lunch. BEST is only offering 50 seats for this event on a first come first served basis, so register today! To register, call Ben at 847-797-9250 or e-mail
