Alpha's Robert Wallace to Speak at Aqueous' Texas Reliability in Electronics Workshop


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will be one of the five companies presenting at Aqueous Technology’s Texas Reliability in Electronics Workshop being held today, October 17 at the Norris Conference Center in Austin, Texas and October 19 at the Richardson Holiday Inn in Richardson, Texas.

Robert Wallace, regional marketing manager for the Americas, will be one of the five speakers presenting at the day long workshops. His presentation, "Soldering Material Set Selection and the Potential Effect on High Reliability Electronics" highlights the importance of strategic decision making when choosing materials for today’s increasingly complex assemblies and reliability requirements. 

"As industries continue to transition to lead-free soldering and with the increasing demands for performance and reliability, it is critical that the right combination of solder paste, fluxes, and rework materials are selected in conjunction with the processes to be used in assembly," said Wallace.

The four other speakers include Michael Konrad, president and CTO of Aqueous Technologies; Naveen Ravidran of Zestron; Mike Burgess of ASM Assembly Solutions-DEK; and Russell Claybrook of Microcare. The free workshop is designed to help participants engage with the increasing demands to meet high levels of product reliability at the lowest cost possible. The speakers' presentations will cover cleaning processes and equipment, environmental mitigation, cleanliness assessment, cleaning chemicals, stencil printing, soldering materials, cleaning post rework, and best practices.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
