The SC-400 PreciseCoat conformal coating jet applies coating materials selectively onto small substrates or where tight tolerances exist between coated and uncoated areas. The jetting system substitutes for masking in situations requiring high accuracy. Using a needle design with non-contact jetting and pulse-width modulated control, the product delivers conformal coating in small volumes at widths of down to 1.2 mm. When dispensing solvent-based materials, the jet can create film thicknesses of 15 µm.
Enhancements to the Optimal SiP Analysis Suite, software used for system-in-package (SiP) design, include automatic port-mapping between chip and package models; combination possibilities for SiP, package, and PCB models through common meshing and IR visualization; and co-design support to reportedly enable unified 3-D signal and power integrity analysis of an IC.
