Problems associated with cleanliness are not a new phenomenon; the presenter’s first personal experience was a qualification test failure that occurred 40 years ago. The recent rise in the use of no-clean fluxes and solder pastes accompanied by some sadly persistent myths associated with their chemistry and reflow processing, have created unexpected field failures.
Manufacturers of high reliability and harsh environment products have used COTS (commercial off the shelf) electronic components for many years. Recent changes in the nature of the COTS supply chain can catch manufacturers off guard and result in unpleasant surprises. These changes call for a more in depth and nuanced understanding of the factors driving the design, marketing, production, and distribution of these components.
Join us for an informative afternoon presentation on these topics. There will be interesting case studies and time for questions.
HOW YOU WILL BENEFIT:
Learn how to reduce field failures by focusing on cleanliness.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Design & process engineers
