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.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

Top 10 Most-Read SMT007 Columns of 2017

01/02/2018 | I-Connect007
Another year is over in the SMT industry. 2017 saw a myriad of hot topics, including Industry 4.0, the millennials’ entry into the manufacturing space, and alternative solder materials, to name a few. Without further ado, here are the Top 10 columns from SMT007 over the past year.

The Effect of Area Shape and Area Ratio on Solder Paste Printing Performance

12/28/2017 | Stefan Härter, et al.
The ongoing miniaturization trend in the SMT production induces new challenges and highly integrated systems. In passive components, the miniaturization leads to the introduction of the EIA size 01005 or smaller. Despite numerous publications in this field already addressing the printing of such devices, a defined wholly optimized process remains unsolved and inspires further novel research ideas on this topic.
