SMTA Europe announces the Professional Development Course on Increasing the Performance of Organic PCBs at Higher Temperatures being at the “Electronics in Harsh Environments Conference” to be held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on April 24 2018.
Martin Wickham of the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) will teach the course focused on Increasing the Performance of Organic PCBs at Higher Temperatures. Power Electronics demand high temperature interconnected solutions at the circuit board level. Application areas for these devices include electric vehicles, renewable energy, avionics and oil & gas.
Wickham will introduce the combination of performance improvements that comprise components, interconnects and substrates. He will teach performance enhancements required in interconnection materials to operate reliability in these harsher environments.
Come learn best practices for building reliable assemblies that can withstand high temperature and harsh environments.
