Digital-microphotography technology being developed by Quadrant Engineering Plastic products promises to help predict the machining characteristics of the high-performance plastic board materials used to make CSP test sockets, which will have 4-mil separations between holes versus 10-mil separations today. "With the aid of digital-microphotography," says Quadrant Product Development Manager Richard Campbell, "various machining characteristics of high-performance plastic test sockets can be quickly and clearly observed. With this information, machining conditions can be modified to optimize productivity."
The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
