Practical Components Adds Amkor's FusionQuad� Test and Thermal Cycle Boards to Its Lineup

Dec 15, 2008

LOS ALAMITOS, CA - December 2008 - With the wide acceptance of Amkor's FusionQuad� (VQFP/HVF-PQFP), Practical Components has added two new test boards to its lineup. FusionQuad� packages are leadframe-based plastic offering the effective integration of ExposedPad TQFP and MLF� technologies. FusionQuad� not only extends the I/O range of classic leadframe packaging to nearly 400 unique pins, it also delivers an approximate 50 percent reduction in package size for a given leadcount.

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.
