iNEMI Next-Generation Solder Materials Workshop at IPC APEX EXPO 2019


Reading time ( words)

New and emerging product markets are driving further miniaturization of components, making smaller and thinner packages and boards the norm. These applications also present unique use and environmental conditions. As a result, the electronics manufacturing industry faces additional assembly yield and product reliability challenges. So how can we successfully mitigate these challenges? Modify existing materials and processes? Develop new technologies?

iNEMI will be holding a free workshop that will focus on the future of solder materials and how these materials must advance to meet the needs of new products and processes. Scheduled on January 31, 2019, at the Buzz Session BZ6 of the IPC APEX EXPO 2019, the workshop will be interactive, with speakers, panel sessions and working groups focused on user needs and materials development. The keynote will be delivered by Intel, while speakers and panelists will be from Senju, Alpha Assembly, Henkel, Indium, HP, Dell, Raytheon and John Deere.

The workshop aims to discuss new and future plans of solder materials development in the electronics industry; increase understanding of the processing and reliability challenges encountered when adopting new solder materials; and identify collaborative project opportunities to advance technology development and deployment of next-generation solders.

Conformal Coatings

08/01/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
While conformal coatings may have been something of an afterthought at the front of the design process, that can no longer be the case. Conformal coatings are now a critical part of any board assembly that might be subjected to challenging conditions. But coatings can also contribute to increased mean time between failure in any conditions, even environmentally controlled environments.

How Do I Get Smart With IPC CFX? (Part 1)

07/30/2019 | Michael Ford, Aegis Software Corp.
Today's assembly factories are seeing the biggest challenge to face the industry in a generation, called by many the next industrial revolution. However, in essence, the challenge is a simple extrapolation of trends that have been occurring and increasing in assembly manufacturing for decades. In Part 1 of this two-part article, Michael Ford writes about the history behind the drive for automation in the SMT assembly industry and where CFX fits in.

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.
