Gen3 Demos SIR, ROSE & PICT Ionic Contamination Testing at Southern Manufacturing 2023

Reading time ( words)

Gen3, Global leader in SIR, CAF, Solderability, Ionic Contamination & process optimisation equipment, will exhibit at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2023, scheduled to take place Feb. 7-9, 2023 at the Farnborough International Exhibition Centre. The company will showcase the AutoSIR2+™ Surface Insulation Resistance Testing System and a new CM+ Series demo unit in Stand L90. Additionally, AOI systems from MEK Europe BV will be on display.

Gen3’s AutoSIR2+™ system represents a dramatic improvement over existing SIR test alternatives, and its shielded precision electronics allows state-of-the-art accuracy resistance measurements to be made up to 1014Ω.

One AutoSIR2+ chassis can hold between 1 to 16 measurement cards and can monitor up to 256 x 2-point test patterns or 78 x 5-point test patterns, or 32 x 9-point test patterns at selectable intervals from minutes to days. Each channel is current limited (1 M Ω), which encourages growth of dendrites for failure analysis. The frequent monitoring capability provides a full picture of the electrochemical reactions taking place on a circuit assembly, and provides early trend analysis enabling tests to be curtailed, thus saving considerable test time and money.


Also on display the 6 Sigma verified CM+ Series is the world’s first combined ROSE and Process Ionic Contamination Tester (PICT). The industry-leading system, also a Global award winner, measures the amount of ionic contamination in accordance with all existing test methods, often referred to as ROSE testing, as well as Process Ionic Contamination Testing (PICT) test.

The CM+ series is available in five different models and tank sizes – when selecting a Test System, it is important to use the smallest possible tank size for the circuit under test. For the first time ever Gen3 will be demonstrating how the CM works, providing an inside tutorial to ionic contamination.  Don’t miss this unique, show stopping, piece of equipment, stop by stand L90.  

Gen3 recently launched the new Objective Evidence website.  This site details the requirements from the latest J Std 001 Rev H which can be met by the combination of the AutoSIR and PICT test. The AutoSIR can perform the initial qualification, and then the PICT test can be used to demonstrate ongoing conformity to the primary setup using the SIR technique.

When Canadian artificial intelligence company Darwin AI was founded in 2017, machine learning and deep learning were still relatively new terms. In the past five years, CEO Sheldon Fernandez and his team have been working with this technology to develop some foundational IP to simplify implementation. About a year ago, Sheldon took a “part happenstance, part deliberate” opportunity to develop a vertical offering for EMS manufacturing. Here’s what happened.

The message can’t be emphasized enough: Producing IC substrates overseas weakens America’s position and national security. In this frank discussion with Will Marsh, president of PCBAA, he talks about his efforts to educate government policymakers on the dire need to consider the entire microelectronics ecosystem. There’s power in numbers, Will says, and he sees the association’s efforts making a difference.
