PCA Stress Measuring Software
Combination with the PCD-400A/430A the PCA Stress Measuring Software PCAS-100A is the dedicated software to test stress on a PCB.
User-friendly, even a beginner can test a PCB stress, analyze data, and create reports in accordance with IPC/JEDEC-9704A*1.
*1. Evaluation method for a PCB using strain gages is regulated by IPC/ JDEC9704A and it is valid for quality evaluation or failure analysis.
●Usable without knowledge of stress measurements, just follow the guidance.
●Reporting feature specialized for PCB stress measurements.
●Use: Testing stress of printed circuit assemblies
ICT, BFT, heat sink assembly, system board integration, or system assembly.
