IPC Technical Webinar Tackles Surface Analytics and Quicktests


Reading time ( words)

How clean is clean? When manufacturing electronic assemblies, impurities left on the board’s surface or underneath the components may lead to in-field failures. To shed light on this issue, IPC will be holding a technical webinar on 23 January 2018 to provide an overview of methodologies available to properly assess the cleanliness of your post clean assemblies.

Topics for discussion include surface analysis for cleanliness assessment; measurement of standards demands; use of analysis processes in the production line; and handling of analysis tools for quality control of supplied components.

The webinar will be led by Dr. Helmut Schweigart, head of the technology department at Zestron.

Chapter 1 Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

12/31/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
The original principle underlying the IPC’s ionic cleanliness requirement was that the mobility of surface ions, detectable from SIR measurements, would correlate to a maximum value of detectable ionic elements permissible on the circuit surface. The industry required a test that was both fast and accurate for process control. Thus, a simplified ion chromatograph that was able to detect ionic elements without differentiation was created.
