Conformal Coatings for Reliable Electronic Assemblies

Modern electronics have become part of our daily lives and the sophisticated electronic circuitry at the heart of these devices and systems must be reliable. Conformal coatings act as a barrier between the electronics and the environment, protecting the areas they cover while strengthening delicate components and traces. Find out more about how conformal coatings enhance the reliability and longevity of electronic printed circuit boards.April 24, 2014

The Next Step in Diagnosis Resolution Improvement

Learn more about RCD as the next step in diagnosis solution enhancement. Where layout-aware diagnosis points to a segment, earn more about RCD as the next step in diagnosis solution enhancement. Where layout-aware diagnosis points to a segment, RCD can isolate a particular root cause in that segment. RCD, a statistical enhancement technology in Tessent Diagnosis and YieldInsight products, is the next step in diagnosis resolution enhancement. It works by analyzing multiple layout diagnosis reports together to identify the underlying defect distribution that is more likely to explain this set of diagnosis results. RCD does not require any additional data beyond what is required for layout-aware diagnosis. This means that RCD fits well into existing diagnosis flows. April 24, 2014
