KYZEN Participates in Successful European Compatibility Seminars


Reading time ( words)

KYZEN today announced that it participated in two successful compatibility seminars at the end of June in conjunction with Rotec, a PCB materials distributor in the Benelux. The first seminar took place on June 27 at KYZEN’s European headquarters in Aalter, Belgium, and the second took place on June 28 at the NH Conference Centre Koningshof Veldhoven in The Netherlands.

Both one-day seminars were well-attended and successfully provided information about compatibility issues that can appear in the solder, cleaning and coating processes. The different presentations explained to attendees how to avoid, measure, interpret and analyze these different situations.

KYZEN’s Mike Bixenman, DBA, chief technology officer, presented about the importance of measuring the impact of ionic contamination on the reliability of the electronic hardware, including cleanliness requirements, building hardware, testing and methods.

Other topics covered during the seminar were conformal coating processes, influences, threats and process variables; tracking and tracing in electronics, including compatibility in the SMT, cleaning and coating process; solder mask vs. conformal coating “surface tension issues”; high-reliability cleaning and conformal coating including the IPC and J-STD approach on cleaning and coating; and a compatibility study on solder paste vs. cleaning vs. coating.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
