Operational efficiency is a critical factor in the fluid processing industry. The synergy of fitting components and assembly technology to achieve this objective is the focus of Fit-LINE, Inc. Applying extensive polymer technology and injection molding expertise, the company has analyzed the design, tooling and manufacturing processes required to create high-performance solutions for demanding high-purity fluid processing applications. Through extensive R&D, testing and evaluation, Fit-LINE has isolated three variables that need to be addressed to ensure leak-free fitting assemblies.June 01, 2015Sponsored by Fit-LINE, Inc.
Remarkable silicones. The combination of their unique ability to maintain physical properties across a wide range of temperature, humidity, and frequency--combined with their flexibility--set them apart. Silicone based adhesives, sealants, potting and encapsulation compounds are used in hundreds of consumer, business, medical, and military electronic systems. In this white paper, learn what makes silicones different from other organic polymers, why their properties remain stable across different temperatures, and how they have played a major role in the rapid innovation of the electronics industry.May 12, 2015Sponsored by Master Bond, Inc.,

Yield improvement and production engineers working on today's ICs encounter many challenges as defects affecting device operation go undetected by traditional in-line techniques. Electrical Failure Analysis (EFA) is a suite of techniques that helps the modern day fab increase yields by isolating faults to areas small enough for Physical Failure Analysis (PFA). In this Webinar, we showcase a few of the proven EFA fault isolation techniques and describe how EFA helps to characterize the underlying defects.
