LiloTree’s President and Founder Dr. Kunal Shah will present a white paper called “A Novel & Cost-effective Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold (ENIG) Surface Finish for Better Reliability of Electronic Assemblies" as part of a panel discussion at this year’s SMTA International to be held on October 16 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. (Eastern; 11-12:30 p.m. Local).

Dr. Shah will present his paper on his National Science Foundation award winning innovative new ENIG-premium, a ground-breaking, world-changing innovation that provide better ENIG performance without cyanide. Because this product is about to be introduced to the general market, everyone interested in a much better performing ENIG (no black pads & robust solder joints) while getting rid of the cyanide and saving up to 30% on gold usage should attend this panel discussion to hear Dr. Shah talk about ENIG-premium.

Long-time industry expert, Steve Williams, had called ENIG-premium the most important technological innovation in the past 20years. “After seeing the third-party test results, I am a true believer in ENIG-premium. It performs better than traditional ENIG, including allowing for a much more controlled gold plating so that there is on average a 30% savings on gold usage. And it gets rid of that nasty cyanide. This will be good for the PCB builders and ever better for the CEMs and OEMs in terms of higher reliability who are using the boards,” said Williams.

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
