Speedprint Launches Barcode Traceability Package in Europe


Tampa, FL — Speedprint Technolo- gies has launched its S-Track trace- ability system in Europe. S-Track is a sophisticated barcode traceability package integrated into the com- pany’s SP710 printer platform. S-Track introduces the benefits of traceability earlier, one pro - cess step upstream from the placement machine, by allowing the placement of barcode labels on boards while they are still in the printer. The system includes a label


feeder within the printer’s archi- tecture to allow any number of preprinted barcode labels to be positioned on the board in any location. The package also pro- vides automated barcode read- ing and includes the company’s traceability option software, allowing users to scan barcodes and recall all the process data related to that board — including those once part of a pan- elized PCB. The label feeder technology,

further, S-Track scans barcodes di- rectly after placement and saves that

data to the SPC database. Any label that fails to read accurately is imme- diately replaced. S-Track’s high- speed scanning head can read 1D, 2D and laser-etched barcode markings. The S-Track placement head


used widely in the component place- ment sector, provides the same func- tionality and operational conven- ience found in pick-and-place ma- chines, with quick-change nozzles for different label styles and sizes, and precise positioning for location accu- racy. Labels can be oriented 90° to fit around PCB features. For panelized PCBs, S-Track


users can affix a label to each board in the panel and take advantage of incremental indexing of barcode data to distinguish and track each board after depaneling further down- stream. This enables complete end- to-end traceability across an SMT as-


mounts alongside Speedprint’s Ad- vanced Dispense Unit (ADu). With S- Track added to the ADu module, the SP710 machine allows users to print the board, pick-and-place the bar- code label, dispense additional solder paste and adhesive if necessary, and then scan all the labels on the board. Operators can store all the process data and even capture images of 2D


failures for future review. Contact: Speedprint, 519

Diodes Intros AEC-Q100 Grade 3 Packet Switches


Plano, TX — Diodes Incorporated has introduced packet switches qualified to AEC-Q100 grade 3. Reportedly, these are the first-ever switches to meet the standard. The PCIe 3-port, 4-lane and 4-port, 4-lane packet switches are specifically designed to meet automotive industry require- ments, targeting applications in info- tainment, telematics and advanced driver assistance systems. PI7C9X2 - G304SLQ and PI7C9X2G404SLQ offer advanced power management, hot-plug connectivity and an inte- grated 100 MHz clock buffer to ease design and to lower BOM cost. Vehicle telematics and infotain-


ment systems demand connectivity that meet both the latest communi- cation standards and automotive re- liability criteria. Based on Diodes' PI7C9X2G PCIe2 packet switch fam- ily, the new devices offer compliance with AEC-Q100 grade 3 over the full automotive temperature range of –40 to +85°C (–40 to +185°F), while meet- ing PCISIG PCIe rev. 2.1 to ensure interoperability. With an MTBF rate of over 50


million hours, these reliable automo- tive devices are characterized by low power dissipation — typically 650 mW in normal L0 mode and 200 mW in L1 mode — which eases thermal design. High performance is also en-


sured by the family's low latency, which is typically 150 ns for a packet running through the switch without blocking. To meet non-automotive re-


quirements for greater fan-out, port- extension flexibility, and to support multiple-host functionality for fail - over operation, the company has also introduced 9-port, 12-lane and 16- port, 16-lane versions of its PCIe packet switches, the PI7C9X2 - G912GP and PI7C9X2G1616PR. These support multiple downstream ports, making them well-suited for a wide range of embedded system, net- working, telecom, and storage appli- cations, such as backplanes, indus- trial process controllers, switches, routers, gateways, base stations, RAID controllers, solid state drives, and NAS equipment. Diodes' automotive-grade PI7C -


9 X2 G304SLQ and PI7C9X2 G404 - SLQ packet switches are offered in a 128-pin LQFP package. The 9-port, 12-lane packet switch is packaged in a 196-pin PBGA, while the 16-port, 16-lane switch comes in a 324-pin


HSBGA package. Contact: Diodes, Inc., 4949
