Alpha, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, will present a technical paper at the upcoming SMTA South China Technical Conference on August 26th in Shenzhen, China.
The paper, titled “The Effect of Solder Paste Reflow Conditions on Surface Insulation Resistance” will be presented by Andy Yuen, Technical Services Director – Alpha Southern China and focuses on the effect of reflow profile on the electrical reliability of no-clean solder paste residue. This topic is of high interest within the electronics assembly community, as understanding how SIR results fluctuate based on reflow profiles can increase the long-term reliability of a solder paste.
Date/Time: Wednesday, August 26, 2015 / 2:55pm – 3:30pm
Venue: Room 314, 3/F, Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Centre, Shenzhen, China
Topic: The Effect of Solder Paste Reflow Conditions on Surface Insulation Resistance
