iNEMI’s End-of-Project Webinar: Conformal Coating Evaluation for Improved Environmental Protection, Phase 2

Reading time ( words)

The standard method of evaluating conformal coatings is to apply coatings to the actual hardware and determine the meantime to failure. This method is inconvenient and slow, often taking many months, making it an impractical way of testing.

The recently completed Phase 2 of the Conformal Coating Evaluation for Improved Environmental Protection project compared the results from three testing environments that provided much shorter testing times using Cu and Ag thin film metrologies. The project team tested three commonly available conformal coatings using flowers-of-sulfur (FOS) and mixed-flowing gas (MFG) environments as well as iodine vapor tests (IVT). The FoS and the MFG environments were proven to be quick tests for quantitatively characterizing conformal coatings, while the IVT can qualitatively characterize conformal coatings in 30-60 minutes. This allows manufacturers to significantly accelerate product development and evaluation cycle times.

To learn about the experiments and test results from Phase 2, please join this webinar. The project team will also share what they learned from the study of using Terahertz as a non-destructive technique for coating thickness measurement and will discuss potential future work. 

This webinar is open to the industry. Two sessions (with the same content) are scheduled; advance registration is required, please visit iNEMI's website for more details.

Seven Key Steps to Selecting a New EMS Partner

08/14/2019 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
Choosing to outsource your electronics manufacturing to an EMS provider requires careful planning and consideration. And even once you’ve made your decision, there may still be things that test you or that don’t go quite to plan. An experienced EMS partner has been there before; they understand the challenges, and they’ll be able to support you through the process to ensure you achieve your goals.
