Newly redesigned www.ecd.com provides thermal profiling information in an easy-to-navigate format. ECD is a maker of thermal profiling equipment and software in Milwaukie, Ore.
Visitors can read ECD’s “Thermosphere” blog posts, articles and press releases, download product information and tech sheets, and register for ECD-University’s complimentary online classes. ECD products can be purchased online through the site’s store. RSS feeds are available.
According to Todd Clifton, ECD’s director of electronic business development, “Our goal is to make the entire thermal profiling process easy to understand, easy to afford and easy to do.”
ECD’s thermal quality management program also is online. Although it is exclusive to ECD, Clifton says the program is offered to both customers and noncustomers. The program guides visitors through all the thermal profiling stages, from PCB characterization through oven verification. It provides checklists to evaluate the efficiency of a company’s current method and suggests steps for the entire thermal process.
