SCS to Present at the Contamination, Cleaning and Coating Conference

Reading time ( words)

Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) will exhibit and present during the SMTA Contamination, Cleaning and Coating Conference, scheduled to take place May 22-24, 2017, in Amsterdam. SCS will exhibit its Parylene conformal coatings that protect a wide range of components and devices in the electronics, automotive, defense, avionics and medical device industries.

SCS Vice President of Technology Rakesh Kumar, Ph.D. will present the paper entitled, “Challenges of designing electronics for conformal insulation to enhance their protection and reliability” on Wednesday, May 24. While the use of conformal coating is, generally, to protect and extend the life of the electronics, it is also important to understand and consider various design requirements of the electronics in order to successfully enhance the product’s reliability long-term. For example, the choice of the materials used in a product may have an impact on coating's performance.

For electronics, it is critical that components are assembled appropriately to ensure complete coverage by the coating as desired for functionality. Additionally, any masking or damasking requirements should be discussed to avoid any incompatibilities between the product and the coating. Finally, conformal coatings can fail due to the presence of contamination underneath the coating, making product cleaning a point of consideration.

This presentation highlights many aspects of electronics manufacturing that should be considered during the design stage of the product - prior to the application of any conformal coating. It further discusses specific aspects/requirements for Parylene coatings and highlights some of the key features that contribute towards enhancing the reliability and protection of electronics and components.

SCS is the leader in Parylene coating services and technologies with 19 coating facilities around the world. Additionally, the company has more than 45 years of applications experience in the electronics, automotive, medical device and defense industries.

Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.

The Effect of Area Shape and Area Ratio on Solder Paste Printing Performance

12/28/2017 | Stefan Härter, et al.
The ongoing miniaturization trend in the SMT production induces new challenges and highly integrated systems. In passive components, the miniaturization leads to the introduction of the EIA size 01005 or smaller. Despite numerous publications in this field already addressing the printing of such devices, a defined wholly optimized process remains unsolved and inspires further novel research ideas on this topic.
