SMART Group and NPL Host Process, Design & Reliability Seminar


Reading time ( words)

SMART Group announces that it is co-sponsoring the Process, Design & Reliability Seminar on 9 November with the NPL.

The full-day event will take place at the NPL facility in Teddington, UK, and will showcase the latest research and results from NPL projects looking at solder joint and contamination failure, coating thickness measurement, solder joint reliability, high-temperature reliability for alternative solders and substrates materials.

Presentation topics include the following:

  • Whisker Mitigation: 1000 Days of Testing to Evaluate Conformal Coatings
  • Performance and Lifetime of Printed Semiconductors
  • Condensation Failure and Improved Testing for Electronic Assemblies
  • High-Temperature Electronics and Their Reliability
  • Factors Affecting Moisture Diffusion in PCBs
  • UV Non-Destructive Coating Thickness Measurement System
  • Coatings for High-Temperature Applications
  • Effect of Production Process and Laminate Materials on Conductive Anodic Filament (CAF) Failure
  • Best Methods to Evaluate Assembly Reliability
  • How to Test and What to Expect in Terms of Failure with Different Test Methods

Each attending delegate will have the opportunity to access the Groups Report Database to download free reports on many of the projects

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
