MB Allen to Present Recent Research at SMTA Space Coast Expo


Reading time ( words)

KIC today announced plans to exhibit at the SMTA Space Coast Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, Nov. 17, 2016 at the Melbourne Auditorium in FL. MB (Marybeth) Allen will present “Optimization of the Reflow Profile to Minimize Voiding” at 11 a.m. 

Void reduction is a significant concern and controversial topic in electronic assembly. Voiding impacts electrical, thermal and mechanical performance. There are many variables such as substrates, components, solder paste, acceptable void levels and of course the reflow profile. This discussion will focus on the optimization of the reflow profile as one of the solutions for the reduction of voiding. 

Additionally, KIC will highlight its smart oven technologies that automatically measure the PCB profile and its match to the relevant process window. Share this continuous and near real-time process and traceability data with all authorized personnel and MES over the factory’s LAN. True process data helps the maintenance people troubleshoot and fix issues faster.  

MB Allen is the Product Manager for KIC. As such she coordinates the advancement of new products and features to accommodate customer needs as KIC adds to its portfolio for the electronics industry. Her technical expertise, relationships with valued partners and customers, and many years of sales experience aid KIC in the future development, improvement and sales of the company's product offerings. MB has worked in the electronics industry for nearly 30 years and been associated with KIC for 26 years with both national and international positions.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.

True or False: CFX Edition

02/06/2020 | David Bergman, vice president, Standards and Training, IPC
Since the release of IPC-2591—Connected Factory Exchange (CFX), Version 1.0—there has been a lot of buzz regarding CFX within the industry from all segments. Still, with all of the buzz, there are also some misconceptions floating around the industry regarding CFX. David Bergman takes some of those statements, using feedback from Subcommittee members, and plays a little game of “True or False: CFX Edition.”
