Dear Electronics Colleague:

My son and I joined lots of other "freaks" recently at the St Vincent concert in Chicago. It was hard to describe other than being a show not only for the the ears but also for the eyes and literary senses.

  

Well our first Kickstarter campaign launched last month and it did not get to our desired funding level-we will have to re-tool. We have learned a lot! (Now that I have experience in what this process looks like- if you have a product idea....we are always looking to help "productize" ideas) 

Finally, as we ring in the new year I would like to wish everyone a healthy, happy new year and Merry Christmas!

If you need to have production boards x-rayed but do not have an efficient means to do this, BEST can provide this service. Our AXI system can be programmed to review BGA, LGA, QFN and other components with non inspectable surfaces in order to confirm your assembly work. More info is here or call Laura at (847) 797-9250 for more details.

01005 Rework Technique! 

01005 Rework Using Solder Balls

01005 Rework Using Solder Balls

At the SMTAI trade show, we co-authored a paper demonstrating a variety of  01005 rework techniques. Take a look at the last of the featured techniques. This particular one was demonstrated to have the greatest promise as a standard method. See a synopsis of this paper coming soon in Circuits Assembly magazine!  

"How to Solder Kit"  

If you are teaching brand new soldering techs about the the basics of soldering then this is the kit for you. It features both throughhole and SMT parts, as well as a "real" PCB with ground plains that emulate real life soldering situations. No more of those cheap "pretend" boards that do not represent the real world for your tech's learning purposes!
