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.

What SMT Component Shortages Mean for Design and Manufacturing Engineers

09/13/2018 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
Much has been written about the increasing shortages of electronic components such as MLCCs, chip resistors and other semiconductor devices. And the manufacturing industry is now seeing price increases and greatly extended lead times. It seems the situation is likely to get rapidly worse rather than better. What can we do? Read on.
