Utilisation de piges de positionnement pour la localisation des trous traversant des circuits imprimés

Targeting Through Holes in Printed Wiring Boards (PWB) – Use of Reference Pins

Lors de l’utilisation des systèmes de préparation automatique des circuits imprimés PC­MET et PWB­MET de Buehler, il est primordial de régler la distance totale de polissage à l’aide de piges de positionnement. Comme l’illustre le schéma ci-dessous, cette distance est de 0,150″ avec un équipement de série. Piges de positionnement pour la localisation des trous …

Sectioning of Electronic Components

IsoMet High Speed

Introduction Sectioning of electronic components for quality control or failure analysis can be challenging as care must be taken to ensure the true structure is revealed, free from preparation-induced artifacts. Historically, sectioning processes that were highly damaging to the sample were used, which could induce artifacts that could easily be misinterpreted as manufacturing defects or …
