MacDermid Alpha Electronic Solutions to Present at SMTA Capital Chapter Meeting


Reading time ( words)

The SMTA Capital Chapter is excited to host a Chapter Meeting on February 20th from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM at PACE Worldwide in Elkridge, MD. Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronic Solutions, will be presenting “Advances in Lead-Free Solder Technologies for High Reliability Applications.”

This presentation will explore topics relating to lead-free alloy development, enhancements in solder paste performance, and processing differences between these alloys and typical SAC and tin-lead alloys.

In the age of environmental regulations that have driven the electronics industry to widely adopt tin-silver-copper (SAC) lead-free solders, high reliability applications continue to use legacy tin-lead solder alloys. However, evolving designs, service environments, and reliability requirements have driven development of new types of solder alloys. In addition, shrinking package sizes requiring increased power densities have created the need for high electrical reliability and low voiding from solder paste fluxes.

Jason Fullerton has been with MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions as a Customer Technical Support Engineer since 2013. He earned his Bachelor's Degree in Manufacturing Engineering from GMI Engineering & Management Institute (now Kettering University) in Flint, MI. He has worked in manufacturing operations in the automotive, high-reliability, and commercial electronics industries since 1993, specializing in SMT and Wave Soldering process engineering. Jason is a member of the SMTA and served as an officer in the Philadelphia chapter from 2011 - 2014. He is also an ASQ Certified Quality Engineer, Six Sigma Black Belt, and Reliability Engineer.

Jason has published and presented at a number of SMTA and IPC meetings and is recognized by the SMTA as a “Distinguished Speaker.” He is a participating member of the IPC J-STD-001 Task Group and received a Distinguished Committee Service Award for work related to development of changes to the ionic cleanliness requirements in J-STD-001G.

Don’t miss out on dinner and a facility tour prior to the presentation. Registration is $20 for members and $30 for non-members. Registration fee will be waived if you join the Capital Chapter during this event!

Global Political Turmoil Creating Uncertainties for the Industry

11/20/2019 | Chris Mitchell, IPC Vice President of Global Government Relations
From where I sit, representing the interests of electronics manufacturers and related companies around the world, I regret to say that the future of our industry—while bright overall—is fraught with uncertainties, from trade policy disputes to government leadership turnovers and economic and social megatrends. IPC is working with all governments and parties to overcome these uncertainties, but there is a lot to tackle.
