Dear Electronics Colleague:

As I traveled through the heartland recently, I stopped at the Detroit Auto Show.  I thought about all of the options we have in front of us, including the alternatives for vehicle fuels, autonomous driving systems, as well as all of the infotainment that will be in cars. This just tells me that electronics will be a big part of the vehicle industry in the future.

   

Our continued teaching and presentation schedule is below. Look for our tech symposium schedule for the fall soon!

StencilQuik(TM) for Mask Repair Underneath BGAs

  

When our StencilQuik(TM) product was developed nearly (11) years ago, the primary purpose was being able to reliably and quickly allow for techs to place a BGA on a prototype or replace a BGA as part of a removal/replacement process with little equipment investment. Tens of thousands of StencilQuik(TM) orders later, another use has come into its own. The StencilQuik(TM) product can be used to place devices AND repair damaged solder mask at the same time. Coming soon is a new "in between" size. Call Katy at 847.797.9250 for further details.
