Bittele Enhances PCB Assembly Facility to Accommodate Extended Part Lead Times


Reading time ( words)

Bittele Electronics Inc., a Toronto-based PCB manufacturer specializing in prototype and small-to-mid volume printed circuit board assembly, announced the expansion of its Markham, Ontario, PCB assembly facility. Bittele has expanded its component warehouse to provide more storage space for consigned inventory since extended part lead times still plague the component market.

"Bittele Electronics is proud to announce the expansion of our Markham assembly facility," said Ben Yang, CEO of Bittele Electronics. "With the expanded warehouse, we can store consigned parts for ongoing and upcoming orders. We also offer the option of purchasing and stocking critical items from a customer's BOM upon request."

In addition to the expansion of its component warehouse, Bittele has also installed a new Soltec Wave Soldering Machine, which will be utilized for larger-volume, through-hole assembly. The new wave soldering machine will complement its current Ersa Selective Soldering Machine and will be operational later this summer.

Bittele's Markham facility offers quick-turn prototype to mid-volume production focusing on its North American customers and features fully automated printed circuit board (PCB) loading, solder paste printing, component placement, reflow and inspection.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
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.

Optimizing Test Engineering Practices for High-Mix Electronics Manufacturing

08/15/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
For PCB and assembly manufacturers, test engineering has become a critical factor in enhancing the profitability of new product introductions (NPIs). Given the trend toward high-mix, low-volume production, the journey from design data to an automated PCB testing program must be quicker and more efficient than ever before. In this article, we will discuss how to optimize the efficiency of the test engineering process in accordance with these new market realities.
