SMTA Seeks Tech Papers for Presentation at ICSR


Reading time ( words)

The Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) is inviting the industry to share their research for presentation at the 10th Annual International Conference on Soldering and Reliability (ICSR), which will be held from May 9–11, 2016 in Toronto, Canada.

For those interested in presenting, please submit a 200-300 word abstract to Jenny Ng at jenny@smta.org on or before February 1, 2016. Authors will be notified of acceptance by February 15, 2016. Technical papers are required and will be due on March 21, 2016.

Suggested topics to be covered include Lead-free Assembly Processes, including Test; solder joint reliability under temp cycling, mechanical shock/drop, after aging; tin whiskers; electromigration; thermal dissipation; environmental compliance/regulations; conformal coating; manufacturing process; mechatronics; corrosion; lead free die attach soldering; and new solder paste technologies, to name few.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

PCB Design Training: More Critical Than Ever

09/05/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I interviewed Gary Ferrari of FTG at the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore. Gary is a co-founder of the IPC Designers Council and a longtime advocate for PCB design and PCB designers. We discussed the crucial role that PCB designers play in the entire electronics development process, and how IPC and the Designers Council are helping to educate and inform the next generation of designers.

eSMART Factory Conference 2019, Day 1

09/02/2019 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
The recent eSMART Factory Conference in June in Dearborn, Michigan, was the second annual conference on the smart factory. SMTA described it as "A technical conference with a focus on electronics manufacturing from software systems/processes to augmented reality and smart inspection." In this article, Happy Holden gives us the highlights of the conference.
