Day 1 of IPC-SMTA Conference to Feature Cleaning & Conformal Coating Workshops


Reading time ( words)

Industry-leading associations IPC and SMTA jointly announce the High-Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference, scheduled to take place November 13-15, 2018 at Chicago Marriott, Schaumburg, Illinois. The conference is focused on the cleanliness of highly dense electronic assemblies to achieve quality and reliability within the stated in-field environment.  

The first day of the conference features Cleaning and Conformal Coating Workshops.

Doug Pauls, principal materials and process engineer from Rockwell Collins, will teach a Workshop on “IPC J-STD-001G Amendment 1 – Cleanliness Requirements” Workshop. The industry as a whole is seeking clarification on how to go about developing “Objective Evidence” that they are meeting ionic cleanliness requirements. Doug’s workshop will teach methodologies that will help assemblers, CMs, and OEMs address these changing cleanliness requirements.

Jason Keeping, project manager, Ruggedized Electronics Sector from Celestica Inc., will teach “Conformal Coating Best Practices” workshop. Jason will explain application methods and coating advances for protection and reliability of circuit card assemblies. As component density increases, the need for coating advancements and water tolerance materials has increased.

Come learn about these valuable lessons and more at the IPC/SMTA Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference.

Cavity Board SMT Assembly Challenges (Part 2)

07/03/2019 | Dudi Amir and Brett Grossman, Intel Corporation
This article describes the details of a study of assembling SiP BGA packages into a cavity. It points out the challenges involved in the board cavity design and assembly of components in a cavity. The authors discussed the board design challenge of having a cavity and defining the proper depth of the cavity to accommodate the board fabricator, the product design, and the SMT assembly.

Clean vs. No-clean Solder Process

07/03/2019 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
Although IPC suggests clear guidelines, agreeing on the cleanliness (or otherwise) of a PCB assembly can often be a subjective and even contentious subject within the electronics manufacturing industry. If you’ve chosen to outsource your assemblies, how do you decide what to specify to your EMS partner? Find out here.

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.
