College Park, MD – March 6, 2012 – DfR Solutions, a leader in quality, reliability, and durability (QRD) solutions for the electronics industry, today announced it is enhancing its micro testing capabilities with the installation of XYZTEC’s state of the art Condor Series at DfR Solutions corporate headquarters in College Park, Maryland.

The Condor Series will enable DfR to offer expansive micro-mechanical testing, including JEDEC JESD22 qualification, copper wire bond pull and shear testing, dynamic bend testing of small structures, and material characterization of Pb-free solders, to its numerous component and OEM customers.

“We take capability and quality of our test equipment very seriously at DfR,” stated DfR Solutions CEO Craig Hillman. “After an extensive survey of existing micro testing technology, it became quite clear that XYZTEC is the world leader in wire pull, bond shear, and die shear testing.”

The Condor Series is the most advanced bond tester on the market, with an impressive list of stateof-the-art capabilities, including high-speed shear testing and micro cyclic bend testing. Its broad range of tools and loadings allow for precise characterization of the pull strength of the smallest bond wire on a fine-pitch, multi-stack architecture and the shear strength of a high power die without changing equipment.

“Given DfR Solutions’ worldwide reputation in component testing and failure analysis, we were quite honored to have been selected to support their bond and die testing needs,” said XYZTEC’s Bas van Tilborg/Managing Director “As DfR Solutions expands its facilities into Europe and Asia, we are looking forward to continuing to provide state-of-the-art capability to its lab staff and subject matter experts.”
