46 SMT007 MAGAZINE I MAY 2020 Feature Interview by the I-Connect007 Editorial Team The I-Connect007 editorial team spoke with Stan Farnsworth and Dr. Rudy Ghosh of Nova- Centrix about their photonic soldering solu- tion, a process they adopted from their pho- tonic curing tools. The nascent technology has the possibility to be disruptive as it potentially offers quicker speeds better suited for high vol- ume and uses less energy in heating. Barry Matties: Can you give us a brief overview of your background and technology? Stan Farnsworth: I'm the chief marketing officer and one of the founding members going back to 1999 for the predecessor company. We've been focused on printed electronics for close to 15 years now, starting with electrically con- ductive inks as an implementation of the nano- materials and nanoparticles that the company was formed to produce. As we got involved in electrically conduc- tive inks, we realized that, for the industry to move forward, there needed to be a way to develop, dry and center those inks into a useful, conductive product for low cost, but also flexible, substrates. It involves different kinds of plastic polymers, textiles, and even paper. It's very much a departure from the tra- ditional FR-4 kind of electronics materials that are traditionally used in the industry. Dan Feinberg: We see some pretty significant changes in soldering. We went from hand sol- NovaCentrix Offers Photonic Soldering Solution
