Considerable interest exists in the process known as the pinin-paste, or the Alternative Assembly and Reflow Technology (AART) process. The AART process allows for the simultaneous reflow of both odd-form and through hole devices as well as surface mount components. This process has several advantages over the typical mixed technology process sequence that includes wave soldering and/or hand soldering, often in addition to reflow soldering.

ProntoTEST-FIXTURE used by electronics manufacturers will accurately setup your Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) and design your "bed of nails" test fixturing.
Please note that Unisoft has added a powerful new feature to ProntoTEST-FIXTURE, we can now automatically create the Netlist from your raw gerber files in addition to the real reference designators, theta rotation, part numbers, X/Y component pin geometries, values, tolerances, etc.
BEST Instructors have put to video demonstrations of common hand soldering skills. These are not designed to be in place of live one on one training where repetitive skills and subsequent one on one feedback is given. Rather they are quick refreshers designed to be viewed if a specific skill has not been practiced in a while.
