PDR’s New IR Thermal Test System Thermally Cycles Key Critical Components to Detect Defects


Reading time ( words)

PDR today announced plans to exhibit at SMTA International, scheduled to take place Sept. 19-20, 2017 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illionis. The PDR team will showcase the Evolution Series Rework Systems – including the new PDR IR-E3M Micro Component/PCB Rework System – in Booth #233. Additionally, the new PDR IR-TS One IR Thermal Test System will be available for demos.

In response to customer demands for ultra- precision micro-rework, PDR has taken its popular Focused IR E3 Evolution Series Rework Platform and further enhanced it for extreme micro-rework applications. In addition to general purpose applications, the IR-E3M’s thermal, mechanical and optical features are all precisely engineered to easily deal with micro components and micro PCBs.

Using PDR’s unique Non-Destructive Dual Thermal Stress Screening Process, based on a variation on HALT/HASS principles, the IR-TS One is able to focus the testing on suspected problem areas to safely screen out early field failures caused by design, environmental, production and structural defects. The PDR IR-TS One uses PDR’s unique dual zone IR heating and gas cooling process that independently heats the PCB and component in a safe thermal cycle and can be used during live system/function HALT/HASS testing.

Applications include: component characterization testing, bare die testing, component and PCBA design validation testing, solder joint validation, polymer bond testing. Industries include automotive, aerospace, defense, medical and consumer electronics. Design validation testing of any new component or PCB assembly for a critical application will benefit from this testing system, bringing thermal testing out of the chamber and on to the bench. IR Thermal testing made easy!

The TS One works alongside HALT/HASS/environmental Test Chambers, with the convenience of a benchtop system, so that you can FOCUS on the problem areas, greatly accelerating the process during design testing.
