Rochester Electronics Partners with AAT for Fully Open-Loop Batch Cleaning

Reading time ( words)

Austin American Technology (AAT) is pleased to announce that Rochester Electronics, the world’s largest continuous source of semiconductors, has partnered with AAT for its batch cleaning needs and purchased an Aqua THERM 4.0.

“Rochester Electronics chose to purchase a second system from AAT as we continue to expand our capabilities and capacity for semiconductor manufacturing in Newburyport,” stated Steve Shermer, Director Assembly Engineering, Rochester Electronics. “The Aqua THERM 4.0 is an easy-to-use, reliable tool that allows us to quickly and efficiently clean our products during assembly.”

As an original manufacturer stocking distributor, Rochester has over 15 billion devices in stock encompassing more than 200,000 part numbers, providing the world’s most extensive range of end-of-life (EOL) semiconductors and broadest range of active semiconductors.

As a licensed semiconductor manufacturer, Rochester has manufactured more than 20,000 device types. With over 12 billion die in stock, Rochester has the capability to manufacture in excess of 70,000 device types.

Rochester offers a full range of manufacturing services including design, wafer processing, assembly, test, reliability and IP archiving, providing single solutions through to full turnkey manufacturing and enabling faster time to market.

With the Aqua THERM 4.0, Rochester Electronics benefits from the lowest initial cost batch cleaner as well as the lowest process costs with a fully open-loop configuration to accommodate the increase in water-only cleaning. This is the perfect cleaner for Rochester Electronics for working only with water-soluble fluxes and using its in-house DI water treatment facility. The Aqua THERM 4.0 has been updated recently from the previous Aqua THERM 9100 to include faster cycle times, better recipe control and a sleek new design.

Ideal for printed circuit boards, semiconductors, subassemblies and process tooling, the Aqua THERM 4.0 brings flexible, unparalleled cleaning performance to the batch process. With supplemental high-temperature capability, the system reduces cycle times while maintaining high product cleanliness and throughput.

For 40 years Rochester, in partnership with more than 70 leading semiconductor manufacturers, has provided its valued customers with a continuous source of critical active and obsolete semiconductors. Through its distribution and manufacturing capabilities, Rochester’s growing product and service portfolio continues to provide an authorized source of supply to customers around the world directly, in partnership with the company’s distribution network and through leading-edge e-commerce platforms.

Big Data Can Bring Your Business Back

Let’s face it, in the past, electronics manufacturing has not been a big business for North America. A majority of electronics are assembled in Asia where supply chains and operating costs offer many economic advantages. In North America, the electronics manufacturing industry has been generally focused on lower volume, high-cost devices, while higher volume products are produced elsewhere. However, the COVID pandemic and various legislation in the U.S. are changing the situation, making electronics manufacturing in North America a more attractive option. How can factories in North America compete for the same type of manufacturing traditionally performed in lower-cost regions?
