NPL's EI Group Presents New Series of Technical Webinars in 2019


Reading time ( words)

NPL's Electronics Interconnection Group's webinars are now in their eighth year. The Group is internationally recognized for its practical and innovative work on lead-free reliability, PCB interconnection failures, tin whisker migration and conformal coating research.

The team investigates interconnect properties and develop metrological techniques to characterize performance, frequently in multiple domains. Research is focused on the emerging technologies within printed electronics, harsh and high temperature electronics, wearable technology and electrochemical performance in coating barrier systems.

These free online webinars provide the opportunity to draw on years of practical experience without the participant needing to leave his/her desk—to participate, all that is needed is a phone line and Internet access. Please note that registration is essential.

The majority of webinars run for between 60–90 minutes (and are limited to 100 delegate/company registrations). After the webinar, participants receive a copy of all of the slides and a listing of all relevant technical reports which can be downloaded for free.

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.

Process Ionic Contamination Test (PICT) Standard Roundtable With Industry Experts

04/22/2020 | I-Connect007
With standards committees set to release the first of four new test standards, industry experts discussed the process ionic contamination test (PICT) standard, which was recently approved by the IEC for publication. Roundtable participants included Teresa Rowe, senior director of assembly and standards technology at IPC, Graham Naisbitt, chairman and CEO of Gen3, Jason Keeping, corporate process development at Celestica, and Doug Pauls, principal materials and process engineer at Collins Aerospace.

Joe Fjelstad Breaks Down His Occam Process

03/04/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Joe Fjelstad recently met with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team to discuss the potential benefits of his Occam process for solderless assembly. This technique allows assembly of the PCB without the risks associated with traditional surface-mount processes, such as solder joint failure. Has the time come for the industry to embrace Occam?
