It’s a good bet that every device you use has been touched, and enhanced, by Teradyne during its assembly or test. Everything Teradyne creates and invests in is oriented to helping organizations deliver their highest quality products, and bring them to market quickly, with the most-profitable economics.

Frank Medina, President of Technica USA stated, “We are very pleased to add Teradyne’s Production Board Test Equipment to our product offering in our SMT-Division. We pride ourselves in representing and distributing some the world’s leading technologies in the SMT market. Teradyne is another highly regarded company we are honored to represent. Their TestStation family of products provides configurations that will allow us to meet our customers production requirements at the highest fault coverage and yield rate.”

Bobby Griffis, Director of Sales and Service−The Americas of Teradyne commented, “We are excited to establish this relationship with Technica USA. We are looking forward to working with their team to address their customers task automation and electronic test needs. We soon will be placing one of our TestStation systems in their demo center in San Jose CA to help demonstrate and train customers in an easily accessible and convenient location.”

The original principle underlying the IPC’s ionic cleanliness requirement was that the mobility of surface ions, detectable from SIR measurements, would correlate to a maximum value of detectable ionic elements permissible on the circuit surface. The industry required a test that was both fast and accurate for process control. Thus, a simplified ion chromatograph that was able to detect ionic elements without differentiation was created.
