|Automated Assembly of Millimeter Wave Components|
|Keywords: Automated Assembly, millimeter wave, 80 G Hz|
|Automation of the manufacturing process is important for all companies that strive to be competitive in the global markets of today's business worlds. Automation requires an unique mix of both technical and business skills. A special mix of technical innovations as well as intelligent process development is the key to successful automation. This paper will cover the steps involved in the development of an automated mm wave assembly that consist of placement of over 100 mm wave components with .0005¡± placement accuracy. An innovative epoxy dispense process is also developed & discussed. This technology enables our clients to deliver millimeter wave products with frequencies in excess of 80 GHz.|
