Martin Hart, CEO of TopLine Corporation, remarks, “We are pleased to extend close technical cooperation and support to VPT Components, who serves as an independent contract assembler to provide column attachment services to HiRel aerospace companies. VPT has demonstrated excellent skills and workmanship with attaching TopLine made solder columns to FPGA devices.”
Dr. Benedetto added, “There is a need in the RadHard IC community for faster turn-times. VPT developed a CCGA process using TopLine copper wrapped columns with excellent attachment and pull-strength test results. We are working on automating the process to give customers quick turn services at competitive pricing.”
