IPC Europe Forum Call for Papers: Innovation for Reliability


Reading time ( words)

IPC is seeking presentations for its 3rd Annual High Reliability Forum for Electronics Subjected to Harsh Use Environments. IPC is interested in presentations on the following topics:

  • Mechanical stress reliability — vibration and shock Methods (software) for predicting reliability
  • Failure Modes Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • Thermal Mitigation
  • Thermal Stress Test Methods
  • HDI Reliability
  • Microvia Failures and Testing Methods
  • Microvia Reliability
  • Design for Reliability
  • Design Rules for Spacing and Staggered Vias
  • Failures Related to Laminate Materials
  • Materials Compatibility
  • System-level effects on Solder Joint Reliability
  • Assembly Tests for Solder Joint Reliability

Presentations should be noncommercial and describe significant results from experiments, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain technical and/or appropriate test results. Presentations should be 45 minutes, including time for questions and answers.

Staff from companies such as NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Honeywell Aerospace, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, Motorola and Raytheon have presented papers at past IPC High Reliability Forums.

If you’re interested in presenting at this important industry event, please submit a brief abstract along with the title of your presentation to AliciaBalonek@ipc.org.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: How Engineers Can Use SPI Tools for Verification

05/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Koh Young’s Ray Welch and Brent Fischthal detail how engineers can work with SPI tools to verify how small they can go in component size with their solder paste application, and how the company’s SPI equipment is helping not only to verify but also to help drive the development collaboration between solder paste and stencil printer manufacturers, and inspection tools and software.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Indium Metal Forecast—Supply Chain Strong, Demand Continues to Grow

05/05/2020 | Donna Vareha-Walsh, Indium
Indium is a critical metal for the indium-tin oxide (ITO) market and other coating applications. Donna Vareha Walsh—director of sales and global supply chain and trade compliance at Indium Corporation—describes the plentiful global supply of indium and its recycling loop, examines indium’s history of price volatility and the market reactions from the recent Fanya Metal Exchange auction, and provides an overview of indium supply and demand drivers, as well as the impact of recycling efforts.
