PDR, a leading manufacturer of BGA rework systems, test and X-ray inspection systems since 1985, is pleased to announce that the UL Mark for Safety is now available on all PDR Rework Systems as designated under UL UL61010-1; Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control and Laboratory use.
The Certification offers PDR customers not only the documentation necessary to satisfy federal, state, and local safety authorities, but the confidence in knowing that their PDR system is built to exacting safety standards under PDR’s uncompromising quality standards programs.
PDR’s continuing commitment to provide safe and reliable rework systems for industry is at the cornerstone of PDR’s mission to design and produce better products for the industry at large.
Since 1987, PDR BGA Rework stations have continued to deliver the highest performance and soldering quality, as demanded by its 4500+ customers, many of the world's top names. PDR IR rework stations have become the benchmark for soldering and desoldering quality, loaded with the features required for modern SMT/BGA rework.
PDR’s BGA Rework Stations, using PDR’s Focused IR technology and made in the UK, are precision engineered using only the finest components for optimum performance. All PDR systems exclusively use IR heating, top and bottom, reworking SMDs BGAs QFNs CSPs LEDs etc., on very difficult PCB/applications, from micro to extra-large.

The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.

Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

At the SMTA Dallas Expo, Andy Shaughnessy sat down with Miles Moreau of KIC to discuss the company’s latest offering in wave process inspection technology. Miles also explains how KIC’s early focus on automated real-time process monitoring has enabled them to become a leader in Smart factory implementation.
