GEN3 and ZESTRON Collaborate on Testing

FARNBOROUGH, HAMPSHIRE, UK — GEN3 Systems and ZE- STRON have agreed to collaborate on a new test service for the U.S. electronics industry to help devel- op objective evidence required by the latest release of IPC-J-STD- 001 Revision H. ZESTRON is a provider of

precision cleaning products, serv- ices and training solutions in the electronics manufacturing and semiconductor industries. ZE- STRON operates eight technical centers worldwide with knowl- edgeable engineers. GEN3, manu- facturer of the AutoSIR™, Auto- CAF™ and CM series PICT test instruments, has supplied this equipment and helped to establish this new test service. “It is always an issue trying

to demonstrate SIR measure- ment and process control equip- ment, especially during the ongo- ing Covid-19 restrictions. Having our equipment available in such

a well-suited facility means that customers can more easily and better evaluate their require- ments,” says Graham Naisbitt, president of GEN3. Electrochemical migration

(ECM) is a challenge, especially as higher density packaging and circuit miniaturization continue to develop. Measuring changes in insulation resistance is neither fast nor straightforward. Howev- er, users will have access to data to ascertain when and at which point in their assembly process ECM problems appear. The ZE- STRON setup permits testing preprepared IPC B52 test cou - pons, or a B53 coupon for materi-

al prescreening. Contact: GEN3 Systems, B2,
