PCB200-Thermal Cycle, new Practical Components Thermal Test Board for 15 mm PoP components

LOS ALAMITOS, CA - Practical Components, a leading international distributor of mechanical IC samples or “dummy” components and SMD production tools and equipment, announces in-stock availability of the popular 15 mm PoP Thermal Cycling Board.

PCB200-Thermal Cycle is the new Practical Components Thermal Test Board for 15 mm PoP components. This board helps test and optimize assembly methods that may produce significant thermal gradients across the assembly in the X, Y and Z axes, and helps engineers to include a component’s maximum temperature, ramp rate and solder paste profile.

  • Board size is 132 x 77 mm, 8 layers, 0.039" thick, no microvias.

  • Board material is IS-410 High Temp. 180 Tg

  • Standard board finish is OSP Entek CU-106A-HT.

  • 15 daisy-chain pad placements for 15 x 15 604 PSvfBGA component.

  • Immersion Silver board finish is available upon special request. MOQ may apply.

  • Gerber and X, Y, Theta data included at no charge.

Previously in short supply, this board as well as the Amkor PoP (PSvfBGA) is in-stock and available for immediate shipping.

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.

Practical Components is a team of dedicated electronics industry professionals offering value pricing, on-time deliver, and superior service to customers. The Practical Components team is ready to provide project assistance in the areas of technical component knowledge, drawings, component land patterns and PCB practice kits.
