Gardien Japan Enhances Test Capabilities with Quad Density Tester


Reading time ( words)

Gardien, an international provider of independent testing and quality assurance solutions to the PCB industry with operations in 5 countries, has announced the addition of the Kaima GUQMM Quad Density Tester, at its Tokyo Service Centre. No machines bigger than this Quad Density Tester are currently operational in the Japanese market.

Key features of the GUQMM Quad Density Tester

  • Grid density: 50mil
  • Test board area: 488mm x 406mm, the largest test area for the above density in operation in Japan
  • Minimum diameter of pin supported:  0.15mm (3.8mil)

This allows for features with a minimum pitch (pin-to-pin distance) of 10mil (254 µm).

Improved test times

Previously, the Tokyo Service Centre relied on testing with Double Density Grid Testers. The introduction of the Quad Density Grid Tester has significantly improved test times.

Equally importantly, the transition from Double Density Testers to Quad Density Testers is seamless, thanks to the easy reusability of most parts.

Commenting on the availability of the more advanced equipment at its facilities, Masayuki Komatsu, Vice President of Gardien Japan, said, “We are pleased to enhance our capabilities which will most certainly contribute to and benefit our customers.

“The addition of the GUQMM Quad Density Tester positions us uniquely in the market to deliver unmatched testing service.”

Study on Application of Four-Wire and Four-Terminal Flying Probe Test Scheme

08/10/2018 | Jin Erbing, Joint Stars Technology Co., Ltd
With the four-wire and four-terminal flying probe test method, voids in the holes formed in the PCB due to process differences, thin copper, and poor conduction due to residual adhesive after laser drilling of the HDI board can be detected, and the circuit board guide can be solved. With the development of multilayer, high-density PCB layout, four-wire four-terminal flying probe testing will play an increasingly important role.

IPC 6012-DA Revisions: The Approach to Cleanliness, Thickness, Inspection, and Wicking

04/13/2018 | Jan Pedersen, ELMATICA
IPC’s Automotive Addendum task group was started in November 2014 and the first edition of IPC 6012-DA was released in April 2016. We are now working on the revised version, and expect a release in Q2 2018. As standards need to evolve, develop and follow the needs of the industry, this work is continuous.
