Eagle Electronics Invests in Quality and Reliability with ATG A7a Flying Probe Tester


Reading time ( words)

Eagle Electronics has recently placed an order for a new ATG A7a automatic flying probe tester. The new tester will allow Eagle to test 100% of their boards via flying probe. The strategy is to utilize the new machine as the testing workhorse while their existing three Microcraft flying probe machines will primarily be used for retest and verification. The intent is to continue to test in panel form for most products. In automatic mode, the new machine will segregate good and bad boards automatically.

Some key features of the A7A include:

  • fully automated test system for production and customized panel
  • for lights out operation
  • different type of products can be loaded in parallel
  • biggest panel size 650 mm x 535 mm
  • tension tools for automatic handling of flex boards down to 0.3 mm

The A7a machine also has the capability to test in Kalvin mode which can catch micro cracks and micro voids in small via structures through low ohm testing. This would not be the standard test, as it is considerably slower. However, on certain high layer count, HDI and high reliability boards it will be a beneficial capability. Delivery is expected late May.

President and CEO, Mike Kalaria stated, “As Eagle Electronics continues to grow at a rapid pace, it is important that we invest in our equipment and processes in order to meet the needs of our growing customer base. By implementing the A7a into our operations, we will not only increase the speed at which we are able to turn product, but it will also assure that everything we produce is top quality and free from any defects that could affect the customer’s final products.”

Delivery of the A7a is expected in late May in conjunction with the installation of two new Lenz drilling machines.

We’ve all heard the cliché: What goes around, comes around. I’ve always felt that was especially true in our industry, with the frequent job changes people make—much accelerated in recent years but always a factor, since I can remember.
