Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) announces that VP of Technology Rakesh Kumar, Ph.D., will present at SMTA International during the H4 Technical Session entitled ‘Electronics Ruggedization Through Coating’, scheduled to take place Tuesday, September 29 from 11:00am - 12:30pm at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

Dr. Kumar will present his paper, Ensuring Performance and Reliability of High Temperature Electronics Through Thermally Stable Parylene HT at Nano/micro Levels, under Chairperson Lulia Muntele, Ph.D. Sanmina Corporation, and Co-chairperson Pradeep Lall, Ph.D., Auburn University.

Under high temp operating environments, the life expectancy of electronic components and systems reduces exponentially if they are not designed, packaged and protected appropriately to tolerate or negate the impact of high temperatures. Significant performance and reliability challenges exist for high temperature electronics used in many applications, including those used in down-hole, under-bonnet, well-logging, and aero-engine applications. This presentation will highlight specific materials and conformal coating issues that play a significant role in addressing above challenges, and presents results of thermal aging effect on Parylene HT at 200oC and up to 450oC. Additionally, it provides an in-depth analysis of the coating’s performance at high temperature and offers solutions to existing issues through incorporating Parylene HT in the design and final protection of high temp electronics, even at nano and micro levels.

What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.
