After much Turkey with way too many trimmings, we find ourselves in the home stretch of 2013. We are thankful for much, including our clients, vendors and employees.
My last west coast trip found me at some of the largest semi and tech companies in Silicon Valley. It was exciting to see that the tech sector is doing well again (though some non brick and mortar, no profit company IPOs seem to be a replay of 2000). As part of that experience, I got to go to a San Jose Sharks hockey game. In Chicago, you cannot walk up the day of the game and sit 8 rows up from the back of the net!
A Merry Christmas and a Successful New Year!

New Video Series on QFNs from Technical Symposium
QFN Assembly Challenges-Phil Zarrow
Check out the videos on our YouTube channel for the recent BEST symposium on bottom terminated components. There is a series of (5) sessions featuring Q/A at the end of the session.
The proliferation of bottom terminated components (they are now the MOST placed package component) have led assemblers to curse the circuit design and IC manufacturing community. This session will discuss the problems and some potential solutions for placing, cleaning, inspecting and reworking these packages. Sorry we had to cut it off at (5) as we do not have all night!
Discussion topics will include: Inspection, Voiding, Thermal Vias, Cleaning Underneath and Rework.This event will be held Dec 11th at Rockwell/Mequoin, WI beginning at 5PM and includes a factory tour.
