Digicom Electronics, Inc., a technology and quality driven electronics manufacturing services company, presents its new Diamond Track Defect Mitigation Services at the BIOMEDevice Show at the San Jose Convention Center, San Jose, CA, on December 7-8, 2016, in booth 327. The program incorporates Digicom’s proprietary Diamond Track nitrogen and cleaning services to reduce or eliminate defects in printed circuit boards, especially for mission critical products such as in the medical, military and aerospace, industrial, and RF wireless industries.
Digicom generates its own nitrogen to use in its solder reflow, selective soldering, and hand soldering manufacturing processes to strengthen the solder bonds and improve solder adhesion. Studies show a 50-60% reduction (as reported in TEquipment.net white paper) in defect levels when using nitrogen in the reflow process. Adding nitrogen minimizes device failures and ensures printed circuit board integrity.
“Adding nitrogen to the soldering process is not commonly done by EMS companies,” explained Mo Ohady, general manager of Digicom Electronics. “Companies that do add it, usually do so by renting or leasing nitrogen-containing cylinders that have to be delivered in a very cold, compressed form which is not suitable for use if you’re trying to maintain hot-zone stability in a reflow oven. Digicom has installed its own nitrogen generation system, producing the nitrogen and piping it through a safe, environmentally sound system so it can be used in all soldering processes – solder reflow, selective soldering, and hand soldering. Generation and on-location storage of nitrogen enable the system to have the exact amount of nitrogen it needs, eliminate temperature variability, and save money for the company, and therefore the customer.”
Digicom’s Diamond Track Cleaning process combines a combination of chemicals, temperature, wash cycles, timing, and equipment that results in printed circuit boards with superior quality and cleanliness. IPC-TM-650 best scenario ionic cleanliness guidelines specify an allowable level of contamination of 10-2 micrograms/in2 for military applications and 65-2 micrograms/in2 for general applications. Digicom consistently delivers better than that, with zero contamination levels, measured and verified by periodic tests done by independent labs.
Digicom helps companies with their complete process from design review through prototyping, component sourcing, manufacture, test, and process validation. Digicom is certified for ISO 9001:2008, ISO 13485:2003 medical devices quality, quality system regulation 21 CFR 820 , and ITAR certification.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
