Seica, Inc. will be an exhibitor at the 2011 IPC Apex Expo, being held on April 12- 14 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The featured systems in booth # 2247 will include the Pilot M4 Flying Prober and the Firefly Laser Selective Soldering system. We are proud to announce that Seica’s original Quick Test software has been selected for the Innovative Technology Center, as well as for a poster presentation, which will be held on April 14th from 3:30 – 4:30pm.

Pilot M4 Flying Probe System

The Pilot M4 is a full performance, double-sided, flying probe system. Its high level of flexibility makes it the ideal solution for those with a wide variety of testing needs. The vertical architecture of the Pilot M4 has two flying probes on each side of the UUT, two additional openfix probes, and two cameras. The system’s configuration allows for true in-circuit testing, giving full access even to boards that do not have all the test points on one side.

The combination of the following test tools and techniques, in a single program, maximizes test coverage and throughput:

  • FNODE signature analysis on the nets of the UUT
  • PWMON net analysis for power on the boards
  • Vectorless tests (JSCAN and OPENFIX), to test ICs for opens and shorts
  • Analog and digital in-circuit test
  • Optional Quick Test
  • Optional functional and visual test capabilities and NETLIST learning procedure used to rebuild layouts and electrical schematics of boards when the relative technical documentation is incomplete or unavailable
  • Optional Thermal Scan resources to aid in troubleshooting boards in depot repair

Quick Test

Quick Test is an innovative software that allows Pilot users to write and execute functional tests quickly. Users are able to correctly program all the system resources, without knowledge of the internal architecture or specific programming language of the ATE. The simple to use graphical interface allows lower skilled operators to perform functional tests. The operator does not have to be concerned about how to send the physical probe pins to the proper x-y locations, as the Flying Prober will send the probes to the right place with a simple understanding of the system channels and nets.

Firefly Selective Soldering System

The Firefly Selective Soldering system is a laser-based technology, developed with complete automation and simplicity of use in mind. The Firefly has been designed to optimize flexibility and automation, including solutions for specific requirements, such as an external pre-heating unit. The Firefly is available in three configurations: top soldering, bottom soldering, along with top and bottom soldering.

The laser in the Firefly system is a clean and versatile technology. The energy through the laser allows for point to point adjustment of the power needed for soldering; the lack of thermal inertia of the laser, combined with real-time temperature readings, enable the dynamic creation of the thermal profile. The ability to apply all of the energy in a single point makes this technology applicable in situations where it is not possible to heat the whole board or where there are problems generated by reduced accessibility. The user is able to change from lead to lead-free solder by simply changing the spool of solder wire. The clean soldering process eliminates the costs and logistics involved with cleaning boards and handling residual waste.

Seica S.p.A, founded in 1986, is a global supplier of automatic test equipment and selective soldering systems, with an installed base of more than 800 systems on four different continents. Seica offers completely automated, laser-based selective soldering solutions, as well as a complete line of test solutions, which include bed of nails and flying probe testers; these have the ability to perform manufacturing defect analysis, in-circuit tests, functional tests and optical tests of loaded boards, second and third level electronic modules and printed circuit boards. Seica S.p.A corporate headquarters is located in Strambino, Italy, with offices in France (Paris), Germany (Munich), USA (New Hampshire and Texas), and China (Suzhou), along with a worldwide distribution network.
