SMTA SE Asia Technical Conference Program Finalized

Reading time ( words)

SMTA is excited to announce the finalized program and registration is now open for the South East Asia Technical Conference on Electronics Assembly. The event will be held April 12-14, 2016 at the Eastin Hotel in Penang, Malaysia. 

This global conference is a strong technical three-day event focused on today’s most important and timely issues in electronics manufacturing. Conference sessions will cover Solder Alloy for Reliability, LED Technology, Traceability and Test, High Reliability, Components and Microelectronics, Printing and Assembly, BGA and BTC, Harsh Environments and Emerging Manufacturing Technologies.

Mohammed Khan, M.S. Lumileds, will deliver the Day 1 keynote presentation on LEDs: The Future is Bright - Trends & Challenges in Manufacturing.  Chuck Bauer, Ph.D., TechLead Corporation, will present the Day 2 keynote presentation on Nanotechnology in Electronics Packaging, Interconnect, and Assembly.

Half-Day Training workshops will be held on Tuesday, April 12. Workshop topics will include:

  • Designing the Cleaning Process within the PCB Assembly Operations
  • Industry 4.0 Smart Factory and Design Collaboration with Manufacturing Partners
  • Solder Paste Evaluation (A review of How Solder Pastes are Evaluated) 
  • Designing in Reliability by Assessing Contamination at the Component Interface
  • It’s Time for Low Temperature-Low Temperatures Solders, New Development and Their Applications
  • An Overview of the Factors and Mechanisms Impacting Reliability in HALT

The SE Asia Technical Conference on Electronics Assembly Technology is sponsored by the SMTA with support from the Persatuan Surface Mount Technology P. Pinang.

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.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
