### Dek fiducial search area

Go to the "manual" tab and change the shape of your search area to square or whatever shape you need. When you go back to "Auto" that search area should still be whatever shape you chose while in manual mode. Hope this helps.

### Calculating PCB surface area

I think what David was getting at was, as an example. Take a cubic inch of gold. Surface area = 6 sq/in. Volume = 1 cu/in. Water displacement = X. Mass = Y Roll that cube of gold out to a micron thick. Surface area = football pitch. Volume = 1 cu/i

Claude is right, however, this may work: Dip the empty board in paint and let the access paint drip off. Measure the volume of the paint before and after. Dip a populated board and measure how much more paint was required in percent. Measure the surf

Our Horizon 03i developed a strange fault while I was away. The 'red square' fiducial search area has turned into a red letter box shape, slightly narrower than the actual fiducial it's trying to find. No idea who did this - anyone know how i can red

Hi. Does anyone out there know of a way to calculate the surface area of populated PCB's? We build many different types, and until now have been using a water displacement method, which I believe to be fundamentally flawed. Our technique is to drop a

This conversation reminds me of the old �How Many Engineers Does It Take To�� joke. We manufacturer the ionic contamination (ROSE, SEC) testers and I am not aware of anyone that performs such exacting surface area calculations. Most people use th

Great story! *grinz* how do engineering managers get portray?

Excuse me, but if I remember my physics lessons well, volume is what the water displacement measures, not mass. therefore, if you take the volume of water displaced by your populated PCB, divide it by the thickness of the PCB (which is easy to measur
