I-Connect007 Launches The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to…Conformal Coatings for Harsh Environments Micro eBook

Reading time ( words)

I-Connect007 is excited to announce the release of the first book in our new micro eBook assembly series: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Conformal Coatings for Harsh Environments.

The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… series is complementary to The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… ongoing series of micro eBooks. This new series will be specifically dedicated to the education of PCB assemblers, and will include the most relevant and essential information for PCA.  
The latest title in this new line of eBooks, The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Conformal Coatings for Harsh Environments, is authored by Phil Kinner of Electrolube. This free micro eBook addresses a myriad of conformal coating materials and process considerations for achieving reliable performance in harsh environments. The chapters describe the many available material types and application methods, and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each.
“This micro eBook offers a comfortable approach to the selection, implementation, and testing of protective coating processes. It would be especially helpful for starters to use as a checklist for operational implementation,” says Dr. Helmut Schweigart, technology development head at Zestron Europe.
This eBook is a must-read for anyone in the electronics industry who wants a better understanding of conformal coatings. 
We welcome you to download this book for free by visiting www.I-007eBooks.com/CC . You can find all of the titles in our eBook series by visiting our library at www.I-007eBooks.com.
Here are some other exciting titles in our micro eBook series:

We hope you enjoy The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Conformal Coatings for Harsh Environments.

A Not So Surprising Focus for Flex in the XR Realm

03/14/2018 | Dan Feinberg
Dan Feinberg has been covering augmented, virtual, and mixed-reality for I-Connect007 for the last few years. He recently met with Eric Braddom, VP of Extended Reality (XR) Product Management for Flex, a company that is involved in this disruptive technology. In this interview, Dan and Eric discuss the future of augmented, mixed and/or virtual reality, or as Flex calls it, "extended reality."

Solder Ball Joint Reliability with Electroless Ni/Pd/Au Plating – Influence of Electroless Pd Plating Film Thickness

06/20/2017 | Yoshinori Ejiri, et al., Hitachi Chemical Co. Ltd
This paper investigated the influence of Pd film thickness in electroless Ni/Pd/Au plating on the solder ball joint reliability. It was found out that the shape and thickness of the intermetallic compounds (IMCs) are among the key factors that affect solder joint reliability after multiple reflow cycles and thermal aging, respectively.

The Need for 3D AOI

06/05/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While the coplanarity of height-sensitive devices such as BGA packages and leaded components can be inspected in 2D using multi-angled colored lighting and side-angle cameras, these will be susceptible to an increase in false calls, a need for additional programming and cycle time, and possible escapes. These factors underscore the need for 3D technology in inspection strategies.
