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

DFM: Top Ten PCB Concerns

07/09/2018 | Dan Thau, Millennium Circuits Ltd
DFM—design for manufacturability—is a critically important but often ignored aspect of the PCB design process that directly impacts product quality and reliability. This article will discuss the top 10 DFM concerns that should be part of any design review process.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.
