STI Electronics’ Micro-Coil Spring Array Wins Prestigious Industry Award
STI Electronics announces that it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Components for its Micro-Coil Spring Array. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, November 15, 2011 ceremony that took place at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany during Productronica 2011.“S
The Micro-Coil Spring Array is an improved alternative to standard rigid arrays to replace the Column Grid Array (solder columns) commonly used on Integrated Circuits (IC) with a very high lead count. The Micro-Coil Spring Array was developed by NASA for a higher degree of reliability over conventional Column Grid Arrays and this technology was licensed to STI Electronics Inc. for its commercialization and production capability.
The Micro-Coil Spring Array is a drop-in replacement for BGA Column Grid Array packaging applications that require greater reliability and long-term robustness. Additionally, it is competitively priced to be lower than Column Grid Array solder columns. Production assembly costs also are lower than for manufacturing the Column Grid Array package.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
