BUCKS, UK – A Smart Group webinar next month will discuss advances in x-ray tube, software and detector technology for manufacturing electronics components and assemblies.

The 90-minute webinar, “100 Years of X-ray Advancement,” will also review failure analysis.

Topics for the Jan. 29 event include technology trends driving industry; basic guide to x-ray systems; advances in tube and detector technology; challenges for x-ray; the battle against counterfeiters, and CT scans and other choices for complex PoPs.

The webinar will review x-ray tube and detector types available and explain the implications of these choices for electronics inspection. These effects will be addressed in terms of what they provide for inspection regarding image resolution, magnification, tube power, detector pixel size, and the effects of detector radiation damage. It also will suggest optimum configurations for the main electronics inspection tasks required today.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
