Hot and humid in Israel

Posted by Mark Laing

Mark Laing Dear all It has been a few months but this week I am out at the Mentor Graphics office in Yavne, Israel. I have been working with the R&D team out here on the upcoming versions of our Process Engineering solutions. I certainly appreciate people taking the time to respond to my blog last week on stencil apertures. The new area ratio report as discussed in last week’s blog will be part of the … Read More

Mark Laing We have recently received a number of requests from customers to add the Valor DFA capability to their existing process engineering solutions which were not Valor products. We now have a way to enable the addition of the Valor DFA solution that will work in conjunction with your existing SMT Programming or Documentation Creation solutions. This enables the fast adoption of DFA analysis capability without … Read More

Mark Laing Dear all I am requesting your input on a hot topic within the Valor Process Engineering team this week. Namely how to calculate the aspect ratio and area ratio for stencil apertures. Now from my research so far, the most common measure of whether the aperture will release correctly has typically been the aspect ratio, however this seems to be calculated easily in simple cases of rectangles and circles. … Read More

Mark Laing A lot of engineers take advantage of the software capability that is delivered with the various types of assembly, test and inspection equipment. However, there is a false economy here as these software applications are optimized for that machine, meaning they typically have very good support for programming the machine but do a less than ideal job of handling the challenges of different CAD/CAM/BOM … Read More

Mark Laing The AOI inspection library names are an important part of AOI programming as the reuse of these inspection templates can speed up the debug programming time, which can in turn improve line utilization time. Within Valor MSS Process Preparation the Master Part Library can store custom attributes that provide the ability to map each part number to an inspection template name. This could be a single attribute … Read More
