CalcuQuote Adds Venkel to EMS Quoting Platform


Reading time ( words)

CalcuQuote, a comprehensive request for quotation (RFQ) management system designed for the electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry, is partnering with Austin-based Venkel Ltd, a supplier of PCB components, specializing in surface mount components, to provide a faster quoting experience for EMS companies.

The integration between Venkel's inventory Application Programming Interface (API) and CalcuQuote's quoting software application allows instant look up of component pricing and availability data at the click of a button.

"Venkel's emphasis on providing a reliable supply of SMT components overlaps perfectly with our customer base of high-mix, low-volume PCB Assembly companies," said Chintan Sutaria, president of CalcuQuote.

CalcuQuote customers who have a need for fast and accurate response to RFQs will be able to upload a Bill of Material (BOM) into CalcuQuote and begin the process of instantly searching through Venkel’s inventory with their account’s pricing. The end result is that hundreds of components can be sourced within seconds without the need for sending and receiving spreadsheets.

"The integration with CalcuQuote will help our customers get a real-time response to quote requests from Venkel, which we know will be helpful to many," said Anil Venkatrao, president of Venkel.

LPKF on Stencils and Depaneling

02/11/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Stephan Schmidt and Mirela Orlowski of LPKF Laser & Electronics North America discuss laser technology in cutting stencils and depaneling circuit boards as a factor in shrinking component sizes and why few people in the industry realize how much of an impact the stencil can have on the manufacturing line.

Practical Verification of Void Reduction Method for BTC Using Exposed Via-in-pad

12/16/2019 | Alfredo Garcia, et al, Sanmina and Nokia
The method explored in this article regards the use of exposed via-in-pad. A dedicated test vehicle was designed for two types of QFN components. The main variables accounted for were the component size, number of exposed vias in the thermal pad, via pitch, via size, and solder paste coverage. The responses sought in this experiment include a thermal pad void level and solder wicking down the via barrel with resulting solder protrusion on the opposite side of the PCB.

Dispensing EMI Shielding Materials: An Alternative to Sputtering

08/23/2019 | Garrett Wong, Nordson Asymtek and Jinu Choi, Henkel Electronic Materials Llc
Shielding electronic systems against EMI has become a hot topic. Technological advancements toward 5G standards, wireless charging of mobile electronics, in-package antenna integration, and SiP adoption are driving the need to apply more effective EMI shielding and isolation to component packages and larger modules. For conformal shielding, EMI shielding materials for exterior package surfaces have mostly been applied with a PVD process of sputtering, leveraging front-end packaging technologies to back-end packaging applications.
