Tour is at at Whizz Systems,
3240 Scott Blvd, Santa Clara
On July 26th, Whizz Systems and its senior staff will host an Open House for the CPMT and ComSoc chapters. We will offer a brief introduction to Whizz Systems and information-packed tour of our SMT (Surface Mount Technology) Manufacturing and Engineering design plant.
Tour participants will learn how the complete PCB (Printed Circuit Board) design and assembly process works today (which is quite different from what was done several years ago). They will experience an inside view of a complete design and manufacturing facility, learn about ISO best practices, how ESD and different packaging issues get handled in a state-of-the-art product design and manufacturing environment.
Attendees will be able to interact with the Engineering Design and Product Development teams. You will see what product engineering tools are being used and how the teams select different approaches for different products and design methodologies. Also described will be how original BGA (Ball Grid Array) work (as well as BGA re-work) is done and how it's tested on 3DX, 5DX and AOI (Automated Optical Inspection) machines.
In summary, this will demonstrate the complete product engineering and manufacturing process from BOM (Bill of Material) procurement to finished product assembly on SMT machines. Attendees will also learn how feeders work, the difference between Lead base and RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substance or Lead-Free), testing and other technical issues.
If you are interested in packaging, contemporary product engineering design, assembly and/or state of the art manufacturing processes, this tour is for you!
