The Tektronix oscilloscope engineering team relies on Tektronix Components Solutions to deliver ASIC packages that over-deliver on the most stringent design requirements of high-end oscilloscopes.
Tektronix Component Solutions provides best-in-class design services using predictive simulation methods to yield rugged solutions for the most advanced packaging needs. We view ourselves as an extension of our customer design team.
Whether your primary challenge is electrical, thermal, structural, or a mix of these characteristics, we have the right expertise to create a bespoke solution for your needs. Our design team specializes in high-reliability packaging for defense and aerospace applications where electrical performance and environmental survival are critical. Our team draws on previous experience, industry leading toolsets, and deep understanding of simulation methods and materials behavior, to provide robust design solutions for our customers.
State-of-the-Art Design Workflows
State-of-the art designs require state-of-the art toolsets and workflows. Tektronix Component Solutions makes extensive use of tools such as Ansys, Cadence, and SolidWorks which enables our engineering teams to develop sophisticated models of designs including closed-loop design validation. This validation significantly reduces risk and increases design confidence saving both development time and expense.
Accurate simulations require accurate knowledge of material properties. Simple material specifications from datasheets are often insufficient. Our team possess years of accumulated knowledge regarding a wide variety of materials. We regularly work with material manufacturers, outside materials testing labs, and other industry experts, to develop and curate our own library of materials qualified for advanced packaging.
We continually evaluate the performance of our designs. After the prototype phase, we use analytical tools to gauge performance and then correlate results back to the simulations. Our on-site measurement capabilities, such as acoustic microscopy, allow us to identify, and correct, even the most elusive chip-package interaction issues and critical failure modes such as white bumps, ULK fracture, and underfill delimitation.
We strive to enhance our simulation and design capability by comparing simulations results with real-world measurements for both electrical and mechanical challenges. We update simulation methods based on findings to strengthen our foundation and increase the model accuracy of the design.
