tivity. While possessing a heat resistance compatible
with auto-soldering processes that utilize lead-free
solder, it also provides the highest level of optical
reflectivity among commercially available liquid
crystalline polymer films. Moreover, since FB film‘s
optical reflectivity deterioration due to heat is minis-
cule, Kuraray will market it as a material best suited
for white LED PCB applications.
eica Microsystems presented a new generation of
digital microscopes – Leica DVM5000,
DVM3000, and DVM2000. With the Leica DVM
line, the microscopic image is displayed directly on
a high-resolution monitor. The streamlined zoom
optics reach extremely difficult-to-access surfaces for
nondestructive inspection of even the largest statio-
nary parts, which could only be examined with great
effort using traditional microscope techniques. Leica
digital microscopes not only feature outstanding,
high-quality optics, they also offer a wide variety of
quantitative analysis options – whether 2D analysis
or advanced 3D surface measurements.
