FEATURES

    Reliability
    Technical Diagnostics of Electronics Products: Application of Bayes Formula and Boltzmann-Arrhenius-Zhurkov
    (BAZ) Model

    For systems where failure-free operation is critical, technical diagnostics can recognize, in a continuous fashion and without dismantling, the ability to continue to function as expected over the long-term.
    by Ephraim Suhir, Laurent BECHOU and Alain Bensoussan

    EMS Company of the Year
    The Creation Resonation
    Today's SMT operations rarely vary, which is why Creation Technologies is something of a
    revelation in everything from its financial model to its factory layout.
    by Mike Buetow

    Supply Chain Control
    Using DNA to Ensure Component Authenticity
    A new marking program for components provides users unalterable and traceable access to the part’s history and origin when marked and shipped by the original component manufacturer. In the case of open-market parts sourced by SMT, they will only be marked after they pass through its counterfeit mitigation and component quality inspection process. A look at how parts are "tagged" and traced.

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
