ZESTRON Academy to Co-host Free Reliability of Circuit Assemblies Workshops


Reading time ( words)

ZESTRON will co-host the Reliability of Circuit Assemblies Workshops which will begin touring in May 2019.

The workshops will feature experts from across a broad range of the circuit assemblies ecosystem discussing topics including; cleaning, conformal coating, soldering materials, failure analysis, new IPC cleanliness testing standards, and more.  Speakers will include industry thought leaders from Aqueous Technologies, ZESTRON, Foresite, Specialty Coating Systems, Nordson Asymtek and FCT Solder.

The Reliability of Circuit Assemblies Workshops will be held in Rockville, MD (May 21); Raleigh, NC (May 23); Melbourne, FL (June 25); and Tampa, FL (June 27). Each event will include time for attendees to network with peers.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
