IMI Wins Best Paper in 2016 NI ASEAN/ANZ Engineering Impact Awards

Reading time ( words)

Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc. (IMI), one of the leading worldwide providers of electronics manufacturing services (EMS), has announced that Christopher Evan Mariano and Gilbert Peren of IMI’s Test and Systems Development (TSD) group won the Best Paper in Electronics and Semiconductors category in the 2016 National Instruments (NI) ASEAN/Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) Engineering Impact Awards.

The winning paper, “Accelerating Development of Dynamic and Static Testers for High Voltage IGBT Power Modules using LabVIEW and NI PXI,” showcased the test innovations made by the TSD group for a major power module customer of IMI. The group developed a custom test platform to accurately and reliably test the performance of 1700 volts/600 amperes power modules and effectively control the effects of stray inductance and other challenges related to high voltage testing in kilovolt range.

National Instruments hosts the annual competition, recognizing innovations that make use of their test platforms and products. NI is an American multinational company that produces automated test equipment and visual instrumentation software.


IMI TSD is an NI Alliance Partner, offering and developing custom test solutions for EMS customers using NI platforms and products.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Cleanliness

John Ling’s invitation to the fifth in EIPC’s series of Technical Snapshots was as droll as we have come to expect: “In these confined days of lockdown, and exhortations to stay at home and only go out for exercise, this only exercises the natural inclination to hop on a ‘plane to some sunshine.’ Although not the same as Factor 20, one of our webinars gives a high degree of protection from harmful ignorance, and you do not have to go out in the cold.”

Chapter 1 Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

12/31/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
The original principle underlying the IPC’s ionic cleanliness requirement was that the mobility of surface ions, detectable from SIR measurements, would correlate to a maximum value of detectable ionic elements permissible on the circuit surface. The industry required a test that was both fast and accurate for process control. Thus, a simplified ion chromatograph that was able to detect ionic elements without differentiation was created.
