EI is now using Universal Instruments' Advantis Flip Chip placement system and Polaris Multi-process Assembly machines to fully automate production of a high-performance chip carrier for a leading military supplier. With several hundred surface-mount components, several memory devices and a very large heat spreader, the product requires a production solution that can accommodate varied and complex component placement. The UIC equipment, along with component traceability, are fully-integrated into EI's production by software customized to the application by Universal's Systems Division.
"Due to the mission critical nature of the product, we require stringent accuracy along with the ability to gang pick and place the larger components and sophisticated parts tracking," explained Raj Raj, Endicott Interconnect Senior Engineering Manager. "In partnership with Universal, we are able to achieve an advanced and innovative solution for these unique manufacturing needs. With Universal as a strategic partner, we will continue to develop innovative and effective solutions to our clients' future product challenges," he added.
