Tempo Automation's Open House Raises the Curtain in San Francisco

Reading time ( words)


Vivek Ganju, senior account executive, demonstrated one of the customer-facing software tools developed by Tempo—Production Forensics—which is a non-destructive report add-on that customers can request. Production Forensics gives customers details from AOI and X-ray inspection that can shed light on potential manufacturing yield issues when the customer takes the final design to mass production. "Working with Tempo can get the customer to better, more reliable production design," stated Ganju, "By identifying issues that might affect the design earlier in the prototyping spins, Tempo can assist customers to increase reliability and yields."

The quoting process also seems to be improved and optimized in the Tempo environment. Multiple Tempo representatives shared that the typical quote times for customers run between three and five hours to deliver a fully-specified quote with every part issue resolved and ready to issue to the manufacturing floor. For Tempo customers, this efficiency is real from the very first interaction.

The growth is real, too. Bruce noted, "In the time since I joined Tempo three months ago, we have moved from a modest 8500 square foot spot into this incredible space with 42,000 square feet of the most advanced PCBA factory. During that same period, we've doubled the number of employees. And we're not done yet. We're scaling for growth, driven by the increasing orders we're seeing from our expanding cadre of very ambitious customers. This is an exciting time for Tempo."

It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
