First Aid for Electric Circuits

Researchers at UIUC have developed microcapsules of carbon nanotubes that are resistive in electric circuits when undisturbed, but become conductive when ruptured. This technology has the potential to make more failsafe circuits and more reliable batteries. From the RSC article: Jeffrey Moore, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and colleagues made microcapsules with robust […]

DEK’s DirEKt Ball Placement Technology Advances toward Microsphere Capability

From a DEK press release: Extending its capabilities for placing solder spheres at high speed, DEK’s proven DirEKt Ball Placement(TM) process now enables accurate solder sphere deposition for spheres as small as 200µm in diameter with pitches as tight as 300µm. With the ability to achieve this accuracy and precision at a first pass yield […]
