Blackfox Offers New IPC Certification Level: CSE


Reading time ( words)

Blackfox Training Institute is now offering training for the new IPC certification level “Certified Standards Expert” or “CSE” which was recently launched by the IPC on April 22, 2019. The CSE certification level is designed for high-level experts in an IPC standard that do not teach or train other people.

The role of the Certified Standards Expert may vary by organization, but those who receive the CSE certification will be able to:

  • Act as a subject matter expert for their organization, answering standard related questions, providing support to various levels of the organization, and, interpreting the standard for their organization.
  • Judge organizational conflicts in opinion of a viewed condition.
  • Act as the intermediary between the organization and IPC staff and/or industry experts on standards questions.
  • Update the organization on the latest standards and best practices from industry.
  • Provide feedback to standards committees on updates to the process for inclusion in the standards.
  • Interface with designers and process engineers to develop assembly processes.

Blackfox provides CSE certification in all 6 IPC training programs including:

  • IPC J-STD-001 - Specifies the best industry practices and requirements for the processes of soldering electronic assemblies.  Space addendum available.
  • IPC 7711/7721 - Stipulates the required processes, equipment, materials, and methods utilized for modifying, reworking, and repairing electronic assemblies.
  • IPC-6012 - This course covers qualification and performance requirements of rigid printed boards.  Space addendum included.
  • IPC-A-600 - Introduces the visual requirements for acceptability of printed circuit boards.
  • IPC-A-610 - Presents the requirements for acceptability of electronic assemblies.
  • IPC/WHMA-A-620 - Instructs students on the visual requirements for quality acceptability in cable and wire harness assemblies.  Space addendum available.

Optimizing Solder Paste Volume for Low-Temperature Reflow of BGA Packages

07/22/2019 | Keith Sweatman, Nihon Superior Co. Ltd
In this article, Keith Sweatman explains how the volume of low-melting-point alloy paste—which delivers the optimum proportion of retained ball alloy for a particular reflow temperature—can be determined by reference to the phase diagrams of the ball and paste alloys.

Approaches to Overcome Nodules and Scratches on Wire-Bondable Plating on PCBs

07/17/2019 | Young K. Song and Vanja Bukva, Teledyne Dalsa Inc., and Ryan Wong, FTG Circuits
Initially adopted internal specifications for acceptance of printed circuit boards (PCBs) used for wire bonding was that there were no nodules or scratches allowed on the wirebond pads when inspected under 20X magnification. This paper details if wire bonding could be successfully performed over nodules and scratches and if there was a dimensional threshold where wire bonding could be successful.

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.
