SOLDERLESS MEASUREMENTS ON MICROWAVE. Screening activities for space applications requires extreme care during the manipulation of the EEE parts to be assembled on a spacecraft. This means that special attention shall be paid to avoid damages on the pieces and any contamination of foreign materials. Soldering of the pieces is hence totally forbidden resulting in a big challenge when the components under test operate at radio frequency and microwave frequency ranges.

Element Evaluation Procedure EEE Parts

August 20, 2017
element evaluation eee parts
The scope of Element Evaluation is to assess the reliability of a individual device to be used as add-on component in an hybrid assembly. Element Evaluation cover electrical, physical and environmental (depending of required class level) performance of the add-on components to guarantee the space use of the tested devices.

When selecting a laboratoy to fulfil testing, calibration or measurement needs, you need to be sure that they can supply you with accurate and reliable results. The technical competence of a laboratory depends on a number of factors including: the qualifications, training and experience of the staff the right equipment –properly calibrated and maintained adequate quality assurance procedures proper sampling practices appropriate testing procedures valid test methods traceability of measurements to national standards accurate recording and reporting procedures suitable testing facilities

Material Analysis EEE Components

December 9, 2015
material analysis electronic component
Material Analysis is performed to detect and identify the materials used in the manufacturing of semiconductors and microelectronic parts and packages. One particular use of this analysis is the detection of prohibited materials, especially in the lead finish, to identify potential reliability issues such as undesirable whisker growth caused by pure tin finishes. Lead finish validation for every component type to be soldered is essencial to determine the correct soldering profile.

Radiation Testing Services Electronics Parts

December 9, 2015
Radiation degrades EEE components and generates device perturbations that could lead to its malfunction or destruction. These effects are highly dependent on the radiation type: gamma radiation, heavy ions, protons, etc., but also on the device technology, the manufacturing lot and the working conditions. ALTER TECHNOLOGY provides in-house radiation testing services which include test samples preparation, program and test board development as well as results reporting.
