LiloTree’s Dr. Kunal Shah to Present at SMTA International 2018

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.

Tips & Tricks: Water Contamination and Flux Expiry

04/17/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Solder joints that form properly are not expected to exhibit reduced reliability. However, a higher number of defects created tends to lead to a higher chance that defective connections escape detection through inspection and functional testing, and that’s not a risk to be taken lightly.

Tips & Tricks: Humidity Level for Electronics Assembly

04/10/2019 | Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Low relative humidity (RH) can allow for higher static charges to build on objects. It can also affect solder pastes, especially OR-class pastes, and this can reduce print performance and stencil life. Read on to find out what level of RH you need for your assembly facility.

IPC Working to Revive Lead-Free R&D in High-Reliability Sectors

Ask yourself the following question: Why is it that the aerospace, defense and high performance (ADHP) electronics sectors remain reliant on lead solders and components even as the commercial sector has largely phased out their use?
