Metcal Wins Mexico Technology Award for IoT Gateway with Solder Agent Software

qweCYPRESS, CA ― October 2019 ― Metcal has been awarded a 2019 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Software – Process Control for its IoT Technology: IoT Gateway with Solder Agent Software. The award was presented to the company during a Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019 ceremony that took place during the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum.

The demand for process control has never been higher as the electronics industry begins to embrace the Internet of Things and Smart Factory 4.0. Metcal introduced its patented “chip-in-cartridge technology” with the release of its latest benchtop soldering system. The information stored within the cartridge and the additional data collection in real time provide users the ability to monitor and manage their soldering process, more than ever, from anywhere in the world.

Through remote and real-time data collection and analytics, any system failures can be detected.  The need to order more solder cartridges can also be predicted, and production time and operators’ soldering performance can be evaluated – all of these will prevent costly downtime.

“Digital transformation in manufacturing is advancing and we have a technology that can collect critical production data over the network and turn it into meaningful and valuable information,” said Mak Manesh, Director of Product Management. “This technology can help our customers to improve their efficiency, increase their productivity, and reduce their cost.”

The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers over the last 12 months.

TE Connectivity Announced Ultra Small Spring Fingers

TE Connectivity (TE)’snew ultra small spring fingers have one of the smallest footprints in the market to save valuable PCB space, allowing for use in a broad range of applications with space constraints across various industries.TE’s ultra small spring fingerscan save valuable PCB space with one of the smallest footprints in the market. Closed-loop contact design ensures reliable connection to the PCB, better normal force and higher current capacity (1.5A). Robust side wall minimizes over- compression. Special anti-lifting design can improve assembly e ciency by locking the tip of the contact within the sidewall of the spring  nger, which helps prevent the contact from getting caught on an operator’s glove during assembly. Pick-and-place area supports auto-assembly processes. It also offered in different heights and styles.As an authorized distributor for TE Connectivity, Heilind Asia provides TE’s products and also value added services. Heilind Asia supports both original equipment …

Battery Stack Monitor Maximizes Performance of Li-Ion Batteries in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

Cosimo CarrieroField Applications Engineer, Analog Devices, Inc.AbstractLithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries are a popular way to store energy in electric and hybrid vehicles. These batteries offer the highest energy density of any current battery technology, but to maximize performance, a battery monitoring system (BMS) is mandatory. A state-of-the-art BMS not only allows you to extract the highest quantity of charge from your battery pack, but also lets you manage the charge and discharge cycles in a safer way, which results in an extended life. Analog Devices provides a full portfolio of BMS devices with focus on accuracy and robust operation.Accurately measuring a battery’s state of charge (SOC) increases battery run time or decreases weight. A precise and stable device does not require factory calibration after PCB assembly. Stability over time improves safety and avoids warranty problems. A self-diagnostics feature helps reach the right automotive safety integrity level (ASIL). A batt…
