Acculogic Inc., a global leader in electronic production test solutions, announces that it was awarded a 2014 Global Technology Award in the category of Test Equipment for its FLS980LXi Flying Probe Tester. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014 ceremony that took place at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL during SMTA International.
An important limitation of currently available flying probe testers is the size of the units (UUTs) that can be tested by them. As a result, manufacturers of backplanes, test interface units, server boards, and large and heavy boards need to deploy other test equipment and costly techniques for product manufacturing verification.
Now, with the introduction of Acculogic’s FLS980LXi flying probe tester, offering a test area of 32” x 38”, extra-large UUTs can be accurately and reliably tested. Furthermore, the system is capable of reliably probing target sizes as small as 100 microns (4 mils), which is substantially smaller than today’s state of technology of 600 microns / 25 mils. The FLS980LXi uses highly repeatable closed loop linear motor drives and joystick-like variable angle probe modules to maximize physical access and guarantee repeatable probing of fine-pitch devices and small components such as 01005s.
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. For more information, visit www.globalsmt.net/awards.
