PCA Stress Measuring Software



Combination with the PCD-400A or PCD-430A, the PCA Stress Measuring Software PCAS-100A is the dedicated software to test stress of PCA.
The PCAS-100A allows a beginner to test a PCA stress, analyze data, and create reports in accordance with IPC/JEDEC-9704A** .

** Evaluation method for PCA using strain gages is regulated by IPC/JEDEC-9704A and it is valid for quality evaluation or failure analysis.


●Allows a beginner to handle it easily.
●Analyzes the stress measurements results on PCB and creates reports.
●Use: Testing of printed circuit assembly
ICT, BFT, heat sink assembly,system board integration, or system assembly
