Reading time ( words)

Flexible Circuits, Inc. (FCI), a leading supplier of the highest reliability and complex flex-centric electronic interconnect assemblies to the U.S. defense and aerospace markets, purchased a FOX2 multi-function combined pick-and-place and dispensing system. Essemtec’s FOX2 combines jetting/dispensing, 2.5D placement, electrical testing, inventory control and traceability in a single machine.

Through concurrent engineering, comprehensive quality assurance and process expertise, FCI’s dedicated employees develop lasting cooperative relationships to meet the stringent demands of its valued customers. Joe Karcewski, Flexible Circuits Assembly Manager commented, “We have very demanding and specific process requirements and we found the flexibilty and the scalability of the Essemtec Fox to best fit our current and future needs.”

As a manufacturer of flexible circuits and assemblies since 1963, FCI has a unique position within the industry. The company occupies 55,000 sq. ft. of air-conditioned building in a pleasant industrial park directly adjacent to private homes. The company has been nominated multiple times for the Governors award, which rewards industries that have a demonstrated record of environmental activism.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

It is assumed that readers are familiar with manufacturing electronic circuit assemblies in accordance with IPC-J-STD-001 or IEC 61189-1; both are titled “Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies.” In October 2018, IPC-J-STD-001 Revision G was amended and released with a new Section 8 of the document titled “Cleaning.” The change was primarily the removal of a “cleanliness” level of 1.56 mg/square cm of NaCl equivalence. This small change has great significance in relation to how companies ensure the electrochemical reliability of their products.

Maximising Performance and Reliability of Automotive Electronics With Conformal Coatings

11/20/2019 | Phil Kinner, Electrolube
While the value of the electronic systems in a modern vehicle typically exceeds 20% of the total vehicle cost, many estimate that this value will exceed 35% within the next five years. With the increased adoption of electronic vehicles and the development of the internet of things (IoT)—which has brought us driverless cars like those being tested by Google in California and BMW on the roads of Bavaria—the future of this industry is starkly different from that of the 1970s when electronic fuel injection systems were first introduced to mainstream production.
