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.”

This article focuses on three different coating material groups that were formulated to operate under high thermal stress and are applied at the printed circuit board manufacturing level. While used for principally different applications, these coatings have in common that they can be key to a successful thermal management concept especially in e-mobility and lighting applications.
