The SMTA and the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) announce the technical program for the Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials this June 27-29, 2017 in College Park, Maryland.

The symposium will commence on Tuesday, June 27 with a keynote presentation by Thomas Sharpe, SMT Corporation, titled “Cloned Devices - How Similar or Different Are Those from Originals.” Sessions on standards and future technologies will feature presentations from Lansdale Semiconductor Inc., Northrop Grumman ES, and Battelle, among others.

Mark Snider, ERAI, will open the second day of the symposium with his keynote presentation “An Overview of Historical Trends Relating to Suspect Counterfeit, Non-Conforming and High Risk Electronic Components.” The subsequent sessions will focus on counterfeits lifecycle, detection related issues, current and future tool and views across the supply chain. Presentations are scheduled from companies including Rochester Electronics, Converge, GIDEP, Applied DNA Sciences, and more.

Thursday, June 29, is dedicated to two full-day workshops on (1) The Implementation Process of SAE 6171 and (2) Use of Component Documentation and Supply Chain for Counterfeit Avoidance.

The information presented at this symposium is valuable to quality and reliability managers, supply chain managers, brand protection specialists, inspectors, marketing and procurement policy makers, contracts and legal management, security specialists and government agencies.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

It is assumed that readers are familiar with manufacturing electronic circuit assemblies in accordance with IPC-J-STD-001 or IEC 61189-1; both are titled “Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies.” In October 2018, IPC-J-STD-001 Revision G was amended and released with a new Section 8 of the document titled “Cleaning.” The change was primarily the removal of a “cleanliness” level of 1.56 mg/square cm of NaCl equivalence. This small change has great significance in relation to how companies ensure the electrochemical reliability of their products.

Maximising Performance and Reliability of Automotive Electronics With Conformal Coatings

11/20/2019 | Phil Kinner, Electrolube
While the value of the electronic systems in a modern vehicle typically exceeds 20% of the total vehicle cost, many estimate that this value will exceed 35% within the next five years. With the increased adoption of electronic vehicles and the development of the internet of things (IoT)—which has brought us driverless cars like those being tested by Google in California and BMW on the roads of Bavaria—the future of this industry is starkly different from that of the 1970s when electronic fuel injection systems were first introduced to mainstream production.
