Japan Unix Debuts Optimal Laser Shape Rings


Reading time ( words)

japan_unix.jpgJapan Unix, a solutions provider for manual and soldering automation, introduces laser shape rings. Choosing the best laser spot shape to fit components and land shapes can reduce circuit board problems.

Laser shapes are available in more than just the well-known circle. It is important to choose the optimal shape to fit the components and shapes. Inadvertent burning of circuit boards or other troubles can be prevented by adjusting appropriate laser shapes such as an oval (ellipse) or a ring-shape. In addition, a beam-splitting technology provides “twin-spot laser,” which enables the simultaneous soldering of two joints. In addition to oval, ring and twin-spot, Japan Unix offers laser beam spot shapes of circle, square, ring and oval ring. (The ring and oval ring shapes are patented by Japan Unix.)

Japan Unix can help customers choose the laser type most suitable to their board patterns and components. For example, if the pad has an ellipse shape, customers should expose it with the oval type. Also, if the through-hole has black resin or other components on the back, Japan Unix suggests that customers use the ring type to prevent the laser burning it.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.
