STI Sponsors SMTA International


Reading time ( words)

STI Electronics, Inc., a full-service organization providing training services, training materials, analytical/failure analysis, prototyping, and small-to-medium volume contract PCB assembly, is proud to be sponsoring SMTA International. STI has announced that it will be sponsoring both the keynote address and the fiesta party buffet.

An IPC authorized training center for J-STD-001, IPC-A-610, IPC/WHMA-A-620, IPC-A-600 and IPC-7711/7721, STI provides both certified IPC application specialist (CIS) and certified IPC trainer (CIT) courses. STI’s Training Services department develops customized training courses to fit specific training needs. Typically, STI builds these classes around company-specific standards and specifications.

Other courses include basic soldering, wave soldering, ESD training, BGA rework and many more. Additionally, STI provides operator/inspector training for through-hole and SMT soldering, conformal coating, and training to the requirements of NASA-STD-8739.1 and NASA-STD-8739.4 for Marshall Space Flight Center and its support contractors. In addition to its standardized training program support materials, STI Electronics’ Training Materials division provides unique or custom training materials including fine-pitch lead-free solder training kits. STI is an approved distributor for IPC training materials.

From product design and manufacturability analysis to pre-production prototype and development, STI's Prototype and Development Lab is a full-service design review and preproduction facility. STI’s Microelectronics Lab was established to meet the rising need for advanced systems development and assembly. STI's Engineering Services division provides engineering support and specialized contract manufacturing services for the electronics manufacturing industry.

The Microelectronics Lab specializes in state-of-the-art engineering design including current technologies such as chip-on-board (COB) and multichip module (MCM) as well as emerging technologies such as imbedded component/die technology (IC/DT).

About STI Electronics, Inc.

Since 1982, STI Electronics, Inc. (STI) has been the premier full-service organization for training, consulting, laboratory analysis, prototyping, and small-to-medium volume contract PCB assembly in the electronics industry. STI also produces a complete line of solder training kits and training support products. For more information, click here.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
