Aqueous Technologies’ Mike Konrad to Present Live Webinar


Reading time ( words)

Mike Konrad will present a live webinar entitled “Improving Reliability of Circuit Assemblies in Harsh Environments” on Tuesday, February 5, 2019.

With the rapid expansion of IOT, many circuit assemblies are now functioning in unfamiliar environments, many of these environments are harsh. Additionally, many new electronic applications control critical systems such as automotive electronics. This webinar focuses on the influence contamination plays on reliability of circuit assemblies, particularly when operated in harsh environments. Several contamination-related failure mechanisms will be presented including electro-chemical migration (dendritic growth, parasitic leakage) and conductive anodic filament (CAF). Methods to determine how clean is clean enough will be discussed.

This webinar is part of Aqueous Technologies non-commercial Tech-Tuesday educational events and is offered free of charge. Registration is now open here: https://bit.ly/2Dk8DQI

Mike Konrad is the founder and CEO of Aqueous Technologies, is an SMTA Distinguished Speaker and is the host of the Reliability Matters podcast available on iTunes.

Rework and Reliability: Less is More!

09/15/2017 | Karen Tellefsen, Alpha Assembly Solutions
Circuit boards are not always perfect after reflow or wave soldering. Scrapping boards with one or two defects is expensive, so rework happens. A good concept for rework is less is more, especially less flux. Use as little rework flux as possible, as in the old Brylcreem ads, "Just a little dab'll do ya."

JJS Stresses Need for Baking Prior to Flex Circuit Assembly

04/20/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
From an assembly perspective, baking the flex circuits prior to manufacturing assembly is crucial as they can be susceptible to delamination. In this interview, Russell Poppe, director of technology at JJS Manufacturing explains why, as well as discusses other challenges in flex circuit assembly and strategies to address them.
