Indium’s Sandy-Smith to Lead Panel at IPC APEX EXPO 2018


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Brook Sandy-Smith, Technical Support Engineer for PCB Assembly Materials, will lead a special panel discussion of industry experts at the IPC APEX EXPO technical conference on Thursday, March 1 in San Diego, California.

The Buzz Session, led by Sandy-Smith, will start at 10:30 am on March 1 and cover Test Methods for Assessing Ionic Cleanliness. The electronics industry continues to search for updated test methods designed to accurately assess ionic cleanliness. While the incumbent Resistivity of Solvent Extract (ROSE) method is no longer considered the best method, emerging methods have yet to reach the level of industry standardization. Process, materials, and assembly experts will discuss the important factors to be considered when choosing the best method to test ionic cleanliness.

Panel participants include:

  • David Lober, Process Chemist, Kyzen Corporation
  • Douglas Pauls, Principle Materials Process Engineer, Rockwell Collins
  • Jason Fullerton, Alpha Assembly Solutions
  • Terry Munson, Foresite, Inc.
  • Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems

SMTAI 2020, which was converted to a virtual event, took place from September 28–30. I attend every year, but since there was no keynote in the virtual format, I went straight to the technical conference. This event covered a broad range of topics related to everything in assembly. Over 90 technical presentations are available, but this report covers just some of the sessions I attended.
