Finger Feeders

Feeder fingers are the perfect accompaniment to your feeder tapes. They are designed to elevate the efficiency of existing OEM Feeders. By attaching the Feeder Finger to existing production feeders, the load and unload times can be reduced to seconds, allowing the operator to get the job into production in a fraction of the time of conventional feeders.
The most problematic component of OEM feeders is the separation and collection of the cover tape. Cover tape feeder jams and cover tape splice problems account for a large percentage of machine stops during production. The Feeder Finger eliminates the cover tape collection process entirely, while providing the machine operator the ability to load strips of cut tape as short as three inches without splicing or using additional strip feeders.
Feeder fingers save costs and improve efficiency on the production floor. With the Feederfinger solution attached to your existing OEM feeders you can save cost and eliminate waste by purchasing near the exact number of components required for each job without the concerns of effectively feeding strips of component tape. Feederfinger also offers a highly efficient way to run prototypes, one-offs and NPI processes.

Electrolube, the established global manufacturer of electro-chemicals, will showcase some specialist encapsulation resin systems and thermal management materials for Australia’s LED manufacturers at this year’s Electronex. Visitors are welcome to visit their stand B15 for advice on their specific applications.
Electrolube’s new innovations meet the ever increasing demands of the rapidly growing LED market, to fully maximise LED performance and lifetime, and ensure the desired results for heat dissipation are achieved. New products on show will include ER2224, which provides high thermal conductivity and excellent thermal cycling performance, making it ideal for use in LED lighting units where it helps to promote heat dissipation and prolong unit service life. The thermally conductive epoxy resin system offers an improved method of cure and subsequent health and safety benefits for the user.
The tough new UR5638 polyurethane resin provides a clear, transparent finish and is a low exotherm resin, making it ideal for LED applications involving the encapsulation of larger LED lighting units. As an aliphatic polymer, the resin also offers superior UV stability as well as excellent transmission of visible light, making it an excellent resin for white light LEDs.

UR5639 has been designed to encapsulate a variety of electrical components, but is particularly suited to LEDs. UR5639 is a clear/transparent polyurethane resin featuring low exotherm, low viscosity, low hardness and high flexibility. The level of flexibility achieved by the cured resin means that the connecting legs of components are not placed under high levels of stress during the cure.

Electrolube will also launch two new silicone-free thermally conductive phase change materials. TPM350 provides low thermal resistance, excellent reliability and is exceptionally easy to apply. The material is similar to grease but the consistency eliminates pump-out and is also dry to the touch, which is particularly useful for pre-apply applications. The TPM550 material features high thermal conductivity of 5.5 W/m.K and becomes workable at approximately 45°C. Its advanced formulation ensures minimal contact thermal resistance and flow is completely contained to defined interfaces due to its thixotropic characteristics.

Introducing the NEW- CV-5200 Connection Validation™Soldering Station

Metcal is raising the bar with a technology that will change hand soldering forever.

Metcal soldering stations have led the way with SmartHeat® technology for 35 years. SmartHeat senses the thermal load and instantly delivers Power on Demand directly to the joint. The embedded, self-regulating heater delivers the right amount of power based on the requirements of the solder joint. This provides a fast, safe and repeatable process with no calibration required.

Currently, the industry standard relies on a visual inspection of the solder joint. Metcal has developed a better way… Introducing Connection Validation.

The intermetallic compound thickness is critical in the formation of a solder joint. Connection Validation (CV) evaluates the quality of the solder joint by calculating the intermetallic compound formation and provides closed loop feedback to the operator.

CV provides feedback to the operator via the LED light ring integrated in the hand-piece. It takes the risk associated with the variables involved in the soldering activity and removes the success and failure determination of a good solder joint out of the hands of the operator.

CV compliments the skill of the operator to judge the quality of a solder joint by introducing an objective method of evaluating solder joint quality. This systemic and objective approach provides repeatability and a measureable standard to the soldering process.

Unique technology benefits:csm CondensoXC 03 be42ed2459

  • Perfluorpolyether Injection volume control principle
  • A defined quantity of fluid (usually perfluorpolyether) is vaporized during operation in the process chamber, which is hermetically sealed by means of a bulkhead. The vapor allows for extremely effective heat transfer to the PCBs due to the release of heat during condensation. The temperature of the medium remains constant. In addition to this, the medium’s boiling point limits the maximum soldering temperature so that the PCBs cannot be damaged due to overheating. This, as well as the ability to control the volume of injected liquid and intermediate exhaust of the vapor, also makes it possible to precisely adjust the temperature/reflow profile of the PCB. Flawlessly reproducible soldering results are thus guaranteed, which increases process stability
  • Controllable vacuum process – Pre-vacuum stages and vacuum after soldering possible
  • Manual loading from frontside
  • No Product movement during soldering
  • No Galden® loss, active Galden® filtering
  • Perfect for high technology, large thermal mass difficult soldering applications

DELTA GAMMA RF Expert      Stand A4

DuraTestTM is the cable for your daily measurement application. It is designed to withstand the movement without degradation of its performance. Ideal for error free test and end control of high throughput production. When failure is not and option and cost is a consideration.
DuraTestTM is available with N and SMA connector, has an insert loss of 0.56dB/m @ 2GHz, 2.56dB/m @ 26.5GHz and phase stability vs. flexure of ± 7.4º @ 26.5GHz.

Phase Stable Cable AssembliesPhaseMaster
For measurement with an network analyser a phase stable is necessary. Otherwise the calibration will not be useful after moving the cable of the temperature has change. Similar problem will occure with phase array antennas.
Phase Master® from Teledyne Storm Microwave is optimised for a low phase shift vs. temperature of ± 300ppm compared with and copper cable of ± 1000ppm and has ±3.5º phase shift vs. flexure. The temperature range is -55ºC to 125ºC and much higher than cable with Polyethylene. It makes the Phase Master® the ideal choice for phase-sensitive application.
The Phase Master® is available up to 18GHz, 26.5GHz and 40GHz and with common right angle and strait connects.

When Low Loss is Important
For current EMC test high power at high frequency is needed to archive the field strength at the DUT. Because the cable between amplifier and antenna can have some length every dB counts.
dB MiserTM is designed for low loss and high power handling. Compare with Polyethylene cable PTFE-cable can handle higher power. The dB MiserTM 300 can handle up to 1000W @ 1GHz with a N-connector and up to 1600W @ 1 GHz with a 7/16-connector. The insert loss is only 0.16dB/m. At 6GHz it is still up to 650W with an insert loss of 0.34dB/m.

For Narrow AssemblyStormFlex
Sometime a right angle connector is too large or has not the required performance. To bend the coax-cable is normally not an option.
StormFlexTM will be a solution. It has an ultra-high strength, multilayer outer braid which protect the inner core. If you bend direct behind the connector you will not see any change in the return loss or an increase in the insert loss.
Standard StormFlexTM is available up to 50GHz and depend on the frequency with 2.4mm, SMA, GPO, GGPO and N connector. The temperature range is -55ºC to 125ºC.

110GHz Cable Assemblies
With increasing the frequency smaller connectors and cable a re necessary to guide through the signal mode free. el-spec offers semi-rigid cable assembly with low density PTFE and 1.0mm connects made in Germany. A 20cm assembly has an insert loss of 2.6dB @ 110GHz and a typ. VSWR of 1.25.
Flexible cable with PTFE has only a small change of the phase and insert loss with bending.

Mixed Signal Oscilloscope- 5-Series MSO Mixed Signal OscilloscopeTektronix 5 Series MSO58 007

Tektronix has again broken through the innovation barrier with the introduction of the new 5 Series MSO mixed signal oscilloscope. To better meet modern electronics design challenges, the 5 Series MSO redefines the midrange oscilloscope with a host of innovations including the industry's first FlexChannel™ technology that allows 4, 6 or 8 analog channels and up to 64 digital channels, integrated protocol analysis and signal generator, a new 12-bit signal acquisition system, a massive high-definition capacitive touch display, and a highly intuitive Direct Access user interface – delivering unprecedented flexibility and unmatched visibility into complex embedded systems.

As embedded systems used in everything from smart watches to hybrid vehicles become more sophisticated, engineers developing these systems require more from their go-to test and measurement solution – the oscilloscope. To effectively and efficiently characterize and debug these more complex systems, designers need to look at a much larger number and wider variety of signals than in the past. At the same time, usability and fast time-to-insight are critical to staying on time and budget. As a clean-slate design, the 5 Series MSO is the world's first oscilloscope with the versatility and deep signal insight needed to meet these challenges.

Vector Network Analyser (VNA)- TTR500 Series Vector Network Analyser (VNA)Tektronix TTR506A VNA

Like Tektronix' highly successful USB-based spectrum analysers, the new TTR500 Series delivers an unmatched combination of low price and performance – 40 percent lower cost than alternatives capable of matching its 122 dB dynamic range and 6 GHz frequency range. It also includes advanced features including new VectorVu-PC analysis software and the only built-in bias tee for testing active devices in this category.  

Among the markets with a critical need for an affordable VNA are Internet of Things (IoT) design and education. VNAs help IoT designers match Bluetooth, WLAN, RFID and other radios to antennas. In many cases, designers must rent or borrow VNAs, adding time and expense to projects. In education, the high cost of VNAs means students get little to no hands-on time with an important instrument. The TTR500 Series dramatically lowers the barrier to entry and features an easy-to-use user interface for common tasks. The TTR500's small, compact form factor eliminates the need to roll around a shared VNA.

Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) - AWG5200 Series Arbitrary Waveform GeneratorTektronix AWG5208 AWG

The new Tektronix 5200 Series arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) offers high signal fidelity and scalability at an affordable price point to meet demanding signal generation needs in advanced research, electronic test, and radar and electronic warfare (EW) system design and test.

It offers an impressive set of capabilities not previously available in the market all in one instrument, including a 10 GS/s sample rate, 16-bit resolution and up to 8 channels per unit along with support for multiple unit synchronization. It includes a flexible waveform generation plug-in suite with comprehensive coverage for a wide variety of standards and digital modulation techniques. It also lowers the cost of ownership for complex multi-signal environments.

At the heart of the AWG5200 series instruments are new high performance digital-analogue converters (DACs) that offer a mix of speed and resolution within a fully-integrated product package. With its powerful DAC cores, the AWG can directly generate highly detailed RF/EW signals or the complex pulse trains used in advanced research. The 16-bit vertical resolution is the best fully-integrated AWG available in the industry compared to alternatives at 14-bits resolution.
