Celestica Selects Agilent Technologies' New Automated X-ray Test System

Apr 08, 2003

PALO ALTO, Calif., March 31, 2003

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that Celestica, a world leader in electronics manufacturing services, has selected the Agilent 5DX Series 5000XL automated X-ray test system to create a complete test solution for complex printed circuit assemblies (PCAs). The 5000XL provides the superior fault coverage and higher quality needed for testing large (up to 24 inches by 40 inches), complex PCAs used in next-generation communications systems by leading original equipment manufacturers.

"Celestica is committed to exceeding its customers' expectations - providing industry-leading electronics manufacturing services and continuously improving all aspects of our service offerings," said John Yealland, vice president, Corporate Technology, Celestica. "Agilent's 5000XL provides the required test coverage for today's larger, more complex assemblies with the quality and reliability that our customers demand to deliver first-rate products to market."

The 5000XL offers customers all the benefits of the market-leading Agilent 5DX Series 5000 automated X-ray test system. The 5DX finds defects in solder joints resulting in higher end-product quality, and lower warranty repair and scrap costs. The system achieves over 90 percent fault coverage, making it the most effective solution for defect containment at post-reflow. The 5000XL model allows customers to test larger, thicker and heavier assemblies with taller components.

"Agilent continues its commitment to provide intelligent PCA test and inspection solutions designed to meet our customers' emerging needs and challenges," said David Kent, acting vice president and general manager of Agilent's Manufacturing Test Business Unit. "Celestica's selection of the Agilent 5DX Series 5000XL confirms the need for expanding production of larger, complex PCAs. It also illustrates the confidence this top-tier manufacturer has that these assemblies can be successfully tested for quality and reliability using Agilent tools."
