Palo Alto, Calif. — Procket Networks Inc. has selected Agilent Technologies Inc.'s 5DX Series 5000XL automated X-ray test system to test a new series of high-performance printed circuit boards (PCBs).
Procket plans to use the 5000XL's inspection capabilities to ensure its large PCBs (up to 24 x 40") are ready for the rigorous demands of hardware used in next-generation enterprise computing and telecommunications networks.
The 5000XL is said to be for use in defect containment at post-reflow, featuring more than 90 percent fault coverage. The system identifies defects in press-fit connectors, which are now widely used in PCBs designed for communications applications. The 5000XL also allows customers to test larger, thicker and heavier boards with taller components, find defects in solder joints, and achieve superior fault coverage that results in higher quality, lower warranty repair costs, and lower scrap costs. Procket Networks Inc. offers a range of breakthrough technology and platforms that enable customers to achieve maximum reliability and value from their IP networks.
