The Oregon Chapter of the SMTA will meet at Axiom Electronics on November 21 from 4-7 pm for a presentation by Dale Lee of Plexus.
His discussion is titled “Tolerance Mistaken: Impacts of not Properly Addressing Limitations of Material, Industry Standards and Assembly Process Limitations.”
Electronic assemblies today are smaller, lighter with increased functionality per unit area and/or volume. The rate of new technology adoption is increasing through develop ever smaller packages with finer lead spacing and substrates with finer lines and spaces. However, design methods, industry standards, materials and manufacturing processes utilized during the product development and production process have not progressed to meet these new demands and thus many of the tolerance margins that were considered insignificant and acceptable in the past are now critical to high yield, reliable products.
This presentation will highlight issues with today’s electronic designs and impacts when material limitations, industry standards and assembly tolerances are not adequately address during design, PCB fabrication, assembly and test.
