The FusionQuad� Test board is intended to evaluate and compare performance of FusionQuad� dummy electronic components to examine and quantify process suitability for handheld electronic product applications in an accelerated test environment, where excessive flexure of a circuit board causes product failure. Practical Components' part number is PCB300-FQ176-DT.
The new Practical Components Thermal Test Board for FusionQuad� is the PCB300-FQ176-TC. This board helps test and optimize assembly methods that may produce significant thermal gradients across the assembly in the x, y and z axes, aiding engineers to include a component's maximum temperature, ramp rate and solder paste being.
Practical Components' products are designed to help engineers qualify their technology, and train and grow their business while significantly reducing costs. According to Practical Components President Kevin Laphen, �Our dummy products are selected with care to be the finest �factory quality� components as well as boards and kits that simulate real-world production. Special attention is given to lead-free availability and formulations including all the various SAC formulations.�
Dummy components are exact mechanical equivalents of live components used only when the physical properties of the components are required. These components can cost as much as 80 percent less than live components, making them ideal for testing of solder processes, machine setup and other process evaluations.
Amkor Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMKR) is a leading provider of semiconductor assembly and test services. The company offers semiconductor companies and electronics OEMs a complete set of microelectronic design and manufacturing services.
