Dear Subscriber:

I recently had the privilege of being a judge at the IL state science fair. If you want your child to gain public speaking experience, be introduced to the scientific method and hang out for the day with other great students I recommend investing the time with your kids in this endeavor!

Do not forget to see us at the following upcoming regional exhibits:

Tursday May 19th Detroit Area 

Thursday May TH June 9th  Minneapolis

Wednesday May 22nd Huntsville 

At the Detroit show BEST will be discussing BGA and leadless device rework practices. See more here.

TI OMAP POP Rework 

      

This package is a challenge to rework. It easily warps, the pitch is very tight and the stacked package makes inspection very challenging. BEST is able to rework POPs such as these as we have processed numerous different OMAP POPs on a variety of different customer products.  

 

Call Laura Ripoli at (847) 797-9250 to discuss your project.

Simple Tips for Improving Your Gas Mileage

Keep tires inflated. Gas mileage can be improved up 3.3% by keeping them at the proper pressure. All of the talk about Nitrogen-filled tires is baloney. Send me the $30 instead of the nitrogen fillingstation  and check your tire pressure every 3-4t fillups.

Use the right oil. Incorrect oil can reduce the gas mileage by 1-2%

Keep your engine properly tuned can save up to 4%.

Drive sensibly. At highway speeds racing, constant lane changing and aggressive driving can lead to up to a 33% decrease in gas mileage.
