STI’s Mark McMeen, VP, Engineering Services, will have a special presentation on How does one collect “Objective Evidence” to meet the new J-STD-001 Section 8.1 on electronic assembly cleanliness? The presentation take place at STI Electronics Inc.’s facility in Madison, AL on March 26, 2020 at 3 p.m. and will explore why this IPC standard came about and why the current “ROSE” test methodology is not enough for today’s advanced designs. It will explore different tools and techniques as well as discuss how to gather objective evidence needed to meet the specification. There will be an actual demonstration of the equipment and test reports that are generated by the SIR test equipment along with the actual hardware that generates the test data that supports “Objective Evidence” for review. Do you know how “clean or dirty” your electronic manufacturing process and resulting hardware/assemblies are at completion?
