Aqueous Founder Mike Konrad to Present at the SMTA Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium

Reading time ( words)

Mike Konrad will present “The Forgotten Benefits of Cleaning Circuit Assemblies for Harsh Environments” at the SMTA Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium February 11-14 at the Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club in Kauai, Hawaii. 

Mike’s presentation will cover the historical significance of residue-free circuit assemblies and the subsequent decline in accepted cleanliness standards. Contamination-related failure mechanisms will be discussed as well as considerations for determining a circuit assembly’s residue tolerance. Modern cleanliness assessment methods will also be discussed. 

The Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium features ground-breaking research from global experts on processing technologies, advanced process, advanced design, cleaning, harsh environments requirements, materials technology, trends in advanced packaging & interconnects, x-ray, inspection, and more. 

Mike Konrad is the founder of Aqueous Technologies and the host of the Reliability Matters podcast available on iTunes.
