API Technologies to Exhibit at IMS 2017


Reading time ( words)

API Technologies Corp., a leading provider of high performance RF and microwave signal conditioning and electromagnetic spectrum management solutions as well as electronics manufacturing services (EMS), will showcase a variety of the company's latest high reliability solutions at the 2017 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS). API will be in Booth 718 for the exhibition, which takes place June 4-9 at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.

In support of IMS 2017's focus on 5G Technologies, API will be exhibiting microelectronic, component and subsystem-level examples of flexible, high frequency product platforms designed to adapt to the emerging ultra-high bandwidth, 5G needs of the wireless telecommunications industry.

API will demonstrate its expertise in multi-disciplined vertical integration by showcasing a variety of complex assemblies, configurable product families and standard platforms which provide a competitive advantage to systems integrators by delivering improvements to overall performance across the block diagram.

To address the emerging needs in the electronics market for reduced size, weight and power consumption (SWaP) solutions, the Company will also be promoting its high packing density, miniaturized solutions designed to achieve some of the smallest footprints in the industry. A new product platform to be featured at the show, API Technologies’ OPTO-FireTM, a U.K. designed and manufactured high speed micro-optical transceiver, addresses the need for a retrofit solution designed to significantly reduce size and weight requirements in airborne, naval, and renewable energy applications. The OPTO-Fire “optic core” offers a replacement for traditional copper cabling while delivering improved data transfer performance.

Additionally, the Company will display custom and customizable high performance solutions for mission critical applications that demand uninterrupted performance and uncompromised reliability.

“IMS is an ideal venue for API to showcase our ability to support customers on every level, from components to subsystem solutions” said Don Barnas, Vice President Worldwide Sales, API Technologies. “Through our participation in the event, we look forward to gaining a deeper understanding of the emerging needs and challenges facing customers and developing new insights into next-generation strategic programs supported by the RF and microwave industry.”

In addition to showcasing its solutions in the exhibit space, API will be presenting Configurable Octave Bandwidth Synthesizers as part of the Microwave Application Seminars (MicroApps) Program. The Company’s presentation on this standard product platform designed for adaptability and ease of integration will be held on Thursday, June 8 at 11 a.m. in the MicroApps Theater.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.

Reliability of ENEPIG by Sequential Thermal Cycling and Aging

11/06/2017 | Reza Ghaffarian, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
Electroless nickel/electroless palladium/immersion gold (ENEPIG) surface finish for PCBs has now become a key surface finish that is used for both tin-lead and lead-free solder assemblies. This article presents the reliability of LGA component packages with 1156 pads assembled with tin-lead solder onto PCBs with an ENEPIG finish and then subjected to thermal cycling and then isothermal aging.
