PCB manufacturer DIVSYS International Inc. will be holding Advanced Selective Soldering Workshops on July 24−26, 2018, and November 6−8, 2018, from 8:30am to 4pm EST.
The in-depth two-day workshop focuses on providing a detailed understanding of PCB construction such as copper layers, barrel plating and porosity. The interaction between the PCB and selective soldering process as well as the heat flow characteristics within thermally challenging multilayer boards will be defined. The classroom and hands-on portions of this advanced workshop is instructed by renowned fabrication and assembly expert, Stanley L. Bentley, P.E. in Indianapolis, Indiana.
This workshop is designed for, but not limited to, those who have a good working knowledge and understanding of selective soldering. The number of attendees for the advanced workshop is being limited to six (6) to allow better focus on each individual's specific needs and unique requests.

Whether in production, or repair and rework, the cost of soldering iron tips can be easily overlooked, but with today’s requirement for higher temperatures in lead-free solder applications, the consumption of tips has dramatically increased. This fact, combined with changes in tip design to meet the higher thermal load requirements, has also resulted in escalating tip costs, making tip care a high priority.
Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
In this interview with I-Connect007, Indium Corporation Technical Manager Jonas Sjoberg discusses voiding and other key challenges in soldering, as well as an automotive electronics testing standard based out of South Korea that is seeing increased utilization all over Asia. He also talks about the increasing trend in manufacturers moving to Type 5 and Type 6 solder powders, and how this is causing its own set of challenges in printing.
