Reading time ( words)

The Los Angeles/Orange County (LA/OC) Chapter of the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) will be holding its chapter dinner meeting on April 20, 2017, and will feature a presentation titled "Cleaning's Re-Evolution", to be discussed by Mike Conrad, president of Aqueous Technologies.

This presentation will review common failure mechanisms associated with assembly residues including the three basic electrical chemical migration failure models (dendritic growth, parasitic leakage, and CAF). Two case histories will also be presented.

  • How a solvent-centric NASA contractor switched from a solvent cleaning process to an aqueous cleaning process. Test results from both processes were submitted to NASA with surprising results.
  • How a contract manufacturer was sued by their customer for in-field product failures and how a $0.03 process could have saved millions.

This presentation will also review the future of the electronic assembly industry. The anticipated explosive growth of IOT, Industry 4.0, wearables, automotive ADAS systems, and other future connected devices promises to recharge the EMS industry.

The event will be held on JT Schmid's Restaurant & Brewery at 2610 E. Katella Avenue, Anaheim, California 92806.
