Call for Participation: IPC Electronics Materials Forum 2019


Reading time ( words)

IPC invites you to present at the upcoming IPC Electronics Materials Forum which will be held November 5–7, 2019 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This new technical conference will focus on developments in materials and processes associated with advanced electronics assembly and manufacturing. Materials enable advancement because it is possible to envision many future technologies, but they will never be fully realized without the materials and processes to manufacture them.

The content will focus on materials for board fabrication, assembly, and post-assembly protection. The over-arching theme of emerging technologies that challenge our existing materials set will inform attendees on developments needed for the future. Interactive panels will also extend an open forum to discuss solutions to these challenges.

Seeking presentations on emerging technologies challenging existing material sets.

Other topics of interest include:

Substrate Materials:

  • Novel board laminates
  • Surface finishes
  • Solder mask advancements
  • Flexible/wearable circuits
  • HDI developments           

Assembly Materials:

  • New solder alloys
  • Flux development
  • Cleaning chemistries
  • Assembly process strategies
  • Thermal interface solutions            

Protective Materials:

  • Cleaning chemistries
  • Conformal coatings
  • Adhesives
  • Underfills

Who Should Attend?

Engineers and managers that procure materials or qualify materials, or want to understand advancements in materials for the board, assembly, components, and protective layers: Process Engineers, Manufacturing Managers, Materials Scientists, SMT Line Managers, Quality Managers (for materials or failure analysis).

Blackfox Training Institute has been training manufacturing technologists for over 20 years. Based in Longmont, Colorado, Blackfox is now focused on helping veterans of our armed services transition into good jobs in the manufacturing sector. During IPC APEX EXPO 2020, Editor Nolan Johnson spoke with Blackfox CEO Al Dill about the company's veteran training programs, and how this effort is helping companies fill jobs that might otherwise go unfilled.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
