Mar 2013

 

Dear Electronics Assembly Colleague:
During March every year the University of IL at Champaign/Urbana holds an engineering open house. The purpose of this event is to attract scientists in to the field of engineering. Thousands of middle and high schoolers in the area come to learn about engineering. We took a carload of young men on campus and they really enjoyed the wind tunnel demo, the 3 million pound pull tester capable of crushing a 4 ft high test sample of concrete, the micro electronics lab, the demonstration of cell-cell networks and the crowd-pleasing tesla coil concert given outdoors during the evening ("Frankenstein" from the Edgar Winter Group below)

All the best,
Bob Wettermann

This non-contact method does not have the potential to scratch the mask NOR does it take the die to elevated temperatures. Review this semi automated process here and call Laura Ripoli at (847) 797-9250 if we can assist you with any reballing projects.

BGA Rework-Device Removal

The proper, careful removal of a BGA is important in the BGA rework process. Success and knowledge gained in this step will lessen the chances for site repair and improve the reflow process once a replacement BGA is placed onto the PCB. See more info here.

 
New High Tech Way to Shield Components from Heat
BEST is pleased to present a new high tech simple way to protect electronic components during the reflow process. Our new Heatshield(TM) product can be cut to size and affixed onto a PCB using Kapton tape.

Unlike pieces of FR4, soft drink cans and other methods, it is effective, simple and flexible.
