NEW exhibitors announced

12 June 2008

National Electronics Week (NEW) is being held at Earls Court from 17 to 19 June.

It is supported by AFDEC (Association of Franchised Distributors of Electronic Components), and IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries, and is set to cover market sectors from components, production and test, to cleanrooms, tools and services.

Amongst the exhibitors there will be Aegis, Pickering Interfaces, CIL, National Instruments, and Electronics Yorkshire.

Aegis will be showcasing version V7 of its NPI and MES software system. V7 builds on the Aegis MOS concept of joining process planning and launch technology with factory execution. It also provides actionable real-time dashboards and analytics within one system and on a single access point for all manufacturing operations personnel. As well as this, V7 delivers shop floor materials verification, paperless documentation, product tracking, interactive traceability, quality and repair, defect visualisation, test and diagnostics, pack-out control, real-time monitoring, SPC, and reporting.

For actionable data display, V7 offers iMonitor 2.0, enabling users to easily design real-time performance, quality, materials, and production dashboards that come alive on the factory’s plasma monitors and manager’s desktops; drawing on real-time data feeds from the standards-based Aegis data acquisition
system, xLink.

Pickering Interfaces will be demonstrating an array of PXI and LXI switching and instrumentation at NEW.

Debuting at the show will be the 60-550 and 60-551 high-density matrices in a compact 1U rack-mounted enclosure with a fully compliant LXI interface. With matrix sizes of up to 512 x 8, 2A capability and 250V rating, the 60-550/1 are suitable for test systems requiring large switching matrices.

In addition, Pickering Interfaces will be featuring their range of PXI precision programmable resistor modules, including an RTD (resistance temperature detector) simulator, and PXI fault insertion modules for hardware-in-the-loop testing of control systems under fault conditions, with up to 20A current handling capability. Also on show will be two new PXI switching modules designed to address requirements for ARINC 608A switching in aerospace test applications. All of these PXI products can be supported in any 3U PXI chassis.

CIL, an independent UK-based EMS provider is more than 20 years old, and will be exhibiting at the show.

Providing in-house circuit design, full material supply chain management, CAD layout and prototyping, final assembly and test, CIL’s services are used by companies working in many areas, including defence and homeland security, telecommunications, broadcast, marine safety, test and instrumentation, and medical and laboratory equipment.

National Instruments is also at NEW to demonstrate its latest products, including LabView, PXI, and modular instruments from DC to RF, and instrument control.

The company offers tools for instrument control over GPIB, VXI and Serial, and provides support for every bus including PXI, PXI Express, USB and LXI. Visitors can see how to design and deploy test systems faster and how to reduce execution time.

Electronics Yorkshire, the support organisation for the region’s industry, will also be at Earls Court, on the Electronics KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network) exhibition stand.

Visitors will have the opportunity to attend the Electronics Yorkshire seminars and hear industry experts talk about issues such as the impact of design on manufacture. In addition, there will also be seminars on WEEE, RoHS, and the challenges faced by UK-based producers and importers.

Speakers participating in the seminars organised by Electronics Yorkshire include Gary Nevison from Premier Farnell, Mark Shayler from eco3, Professor Martin Goosey from leMRC, and Peter Burnley and Eric Hinsley from Electronics Yorkshire.
