AIM's Karl Seelig to Present at the SMTA Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium

Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder is pleased to announce that Karl Seelig, VP of Technology, will present at the SMTA Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium, scheduled to take place February 6–9, 2017 at the Sheraton Poipu Kauai Resort in Kauai, Hawaii. 

Seelig's presentation, "Weak Organic Acids – Detection and Reliability Assessment," will take place on February 8, 2017 from 1:45 to 2:15 pm. This presentation explores the risks associated with weak organic acids (WOA), common component of no clean liquid fluxes and source of chemical commination that can cause electrical and corrosive failures on circuit assemblies. In this study, the accuracy of common residue extraction methods and a comparison of electrical and soldering performance of common WOA is performed to illustrate the challenges associated with flux residue assessment as it relates to reliability.

With over 30 years of industry experience, Seelig has written and presented numerous technical papers on topics including lead-free electronics assembly, no-clean flux technology, assembly & process optimization, inspection, and metallurgical studies. Seelig serves as the Chairman of the IPC Solder Products Value Council and has been involved in the development of material specifications under IPC. He has also received numerous patents in soldering technology, including four lead-free solder alloys.
