Seica Publishes Video on New Pilot V8 Next > Series Flying Probe System


Reading time ( words)

Seica's new line of educational videos, Pilot V8 Next > series, features the most complete flying probe test platform on the market. Providing up to 20 mobile resources for testing an electronic board, the Pilot V8 Next includes test probes that can each apply up to 2A current; high-resolution cameras for automatic optical inspection, barcode and data matrix reading; laser sensors; capacitive probes; pyrometers; optical fiber sensors for LEDs; minifixtures for boundary scan and On Board Programming; and high-frequency probes capable of measuring signals at frequencies over 1.5GHz.

Engineered for medium- and high-volume production, the Pilot V8 Next > series is available in a fully-automated version, capable of hosting from 1 to 12 racks of boards to be tested (even of different types) or for direct connection to board loading/unloading and tilt modules, compatible with any standard assembly line. The Pilot V8 Next > can be configured to satisfy the full range of different board test requirements. The HR version extends the performance to include probing of extremely miniaturized devices (down to 30 µm), while in the XL version expands the standard work area of 610 x 540 mm to 800 x 650 mm, able to accommodate and test "extra-large" boards.

In the line with Industry 4.0 Standards

All of the Next> series solutions have Seica's Industrial Monitoring Solution on board, with the potential for remote monitoring of current and voltage consumption, mains supply, temperature, light indicators and other parameters useful to indicate correct operation, to provide information enabling predictive maintenance and in general to render the systems compatible with today's Industry 4.0 standards.

The Convergence: IPC Merging CFX With IPC-2581

09/16/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Gary Carter of XPLM and Michael Ford of Aegis Software are heading a group tasked with combining the IPC-2581 standard, now referred to as Digital Product Model Exchange (DPMX), with IPC’s Connected Factory Exchange (CFX). In this interview, they discuss the benefits that can be expected when these standards are fully merged for both PCB designers and process engineers on the manufacturing floor.

How Digitalization Is Transforming the Electronics Manufacturing Industry

09/11/2019 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
The rise of the "digital" supply network—such as the cloud, big data, 3D printing, augmented reality, or the internet of things (IoT)—promises to address issues such as increasing global competition, rising consumer expectations, and the increasingly complex patterns of consumer demand, by providing a greater level of transparency, innovation, and resiliency. And there is a growing belief among business strategists that the more digitalized our manufacturing supply chains can become, the greater our efficiency will be.
