Spectroline Debuts PC-9920A UV EPROM/Wafer Erasing System Print E-mail

PC-9920A UV EPROM/wafer erasing system is for high-volume production. Reportedly has an operating UV intensity up to 60% greater than other systems. Drawer measures 93.3 x 71.1 x 4.4cm; provides for loading of wafers, printed circuit boards, open-faced stocking tubes and metric cards. Adjustable quick load/unload tray inserts can be set to varying heights. Accommodates load capacity of 150mm wafers. PC-9920A-LT system includes light tower; has red/yellow/green signals that indicate the mode status at every stage of operation. Both systems use nine ultra-high intensity, ozone-free, low-pressure mercury vapor quartz grid lamp assemblies. UV grid lamps reportedly increase throughput. Has nominal 254nm irradiance of 70,000 µW/cm² over a 91.4 x 61cm erasing area.

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.
