Call for Participation
"How clean is clean?" is more challenging to answer as conductors and circuit traces are increasingly narrower. What is acceptably clean for one segment of the industry may be unacceptable in more demanding segments. You are invited to submit an abstract or workshop outline on new developments in the following categories:
-Residue tapped under the body of the component
-Process control – methods used on the production floor
-Solder Paste Materials
-Potting verses Coating
-What works best
The abstract deadline has passed. Please consider submitting an abstract for next year.
Submission Guidelines for AbstractsAbstracts are solicited to describe original and unpublished work. The abstract should be at least 300 words and must clearly state purpose, results and conclusions. Technical conference agenda presentations will be limited to 30–40 minutes, including five minutes for questions.
