IPC Seeks Papers for Wire Harness Manufacturing Conference


Reading time ( words)

IPC—Association Connecting Electronics Industries and the Wiring Harness Manufacturer's Association (WHMA) invites engineers, researchers, academics, technical experts and industry leaders to submit abstracts for IPC/WHMA European Wire Harness Manufacturing Conference to be held October 3–4, 2017 at the Novotel Convention & Wellness Roissy CDG in Paris, France.  

Expert papers and presentations are being sought in the following areas:

  • IPC/WHMA-A-620 implementation
  • Quality requirements
  • Overview on the cabling and interconnection industry and contractors
  • Reliability issues and failure analysis
  • Overview on standards for no solder interconnection cables and counterfeiting
  • Standards and training
  • Connectors
  • Electrical testing
  • Tooling
  • Process equipment
  • Calibration
  • Wire harness troubleshooting
  • Connector interconnection environmental testing
  • Case studies on A-620 success

An approximate 300-word technical conference abstract summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research and discoveries must be submitted. The submission should describe significant results from experiments and case studies, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain appropriate technical test results. Final selected presentations will be limited to 30 minutes.

"Wire harness manufacturers are on the front line of technical challenges. IPC and WHMA are organizing our first European wire harness conference to identify some of these challenges, explain IPC/WHMA-A-620 in depth and how the standard can help manufacturers with their business," said David Bergman, IPC vice president of standards and technology.

Technical conference paper abstracts are due April 21, 2017. To submit an abstract or course proposal, contact David Bergman at DavidBergman@ipc.org.

Reliability of ENEPIG by Sequential Thermal Cycling and Aging

11/06/2017 | Reza Ghaffarian, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
Electroless nickel/electroless palladium/immersion gold (ENEPIG) surface finish for PCBs has now become a key surface finish that is used for both tin-lead and lead-free solder assemblies. This article presents the reliability of LGA component packages with 1156 pads assembled with tin-lead solder onto PCBs with an ENEPIG finish and then subjected to thermal cycling and then isothermal aging.

Achieving the Perfect Solder Joint: The Many Perspectives on Soldering

10/30/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
For this month's issue of SMT Magazine, we brought several experts together to discuss the many aspects of soldering, from solder paste, to automation, inspection, and the challenges in achieving the perfect solder joint. We also talked about the strategies and parameters to consider to ensure reliable, good solder joints.
