Microtek Laboratories China Adds High-Tech Reflow Oven for Automotive and Transportation Reflow Simulation Testing


Reading time ( words)

Microtek is proud to announce the addition of a 13-zone, active-cooled, Heller reflow oven at its Changzhou, China facility to accomplish reflow preconditioning for test samples. Automotive and Transportation Reliability testing requires aggressive reflow preconditioning cycles prior to reliability testing that demand a 13 zone oven with active water cooling to accomplish properly. 

The new reflow oven is also equipped to use an inert nitrogen environment for reflow that protects the soldermask and surface finish from degradation due to oxidation during reflow exposure. Microtek’s commitment to Automotive and Transportation testing also includes the use of 10 thermal shock chambers equipped for "Single Hole" or "Daisy Chain" reliability testing along with 28 humidity and HAST chambers equipped with 256 channels of CAF/ECM/SIR testing capability up to 2000VDC.

DFM: Top Ten PCB Concerns

07/09/2018 | Dan Thau, Millennium Circuits Ltd
DFM—design for manufacturability—is a critically important but often ignored aspect of the PCB design process that directly impacts product quality and reliability. This article will discuss the top 10 DFM concerns that should be part of any design review process.

Manufacturability: Pad Relief and Mask Relationship to Solder Joint Volume

03/09/2018 | Ken Horky, Peterson Manufacturing
Electronic assembly thermal management has always been an issue but has become more significant as we pack more power and function into a smaller form factor. In recent years, the growing use of LEDs for illumination on a large scale has presented additional thermal demands.

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.
