We recently had the opportunity to participate in a corn maze in Door County Wisconsin. There were miles of trails available on a beautiful late summer day. The corn was full and provided good coverage given that it was one of the driest summers on record. We did get the clue solved while still being showered with sunshine.

 

If you want to know what to do with the pumpkins after Halloween build a trebuchet and launch them.

Referee Inspection

There are times when "calls" need to be made on workmanship with respect to the acceptance or lack thereof on how a PCB has been manufactured.

Recent challenges that clients have brought to BEST include:

  1. Solder balls/fines which can only be seen under magnification,
  2. 10/90 high temperature solder joints on a BGA ,
  3. White reside on the surface of a conformal-coated board

BEST can provide a non-biased 3rd party opinion including a report and photographs of your soldering workmanship questions.
