Technical Sessions

8:30AM
You Design & You Manufacture Complex Multilayer Circuits with 3D Printing 

Speaker: Ofer Maltiel, Nano Dimension
Bio: 
My driving passion in life is to help people succeed. The client’s goal is my first priority. Whether it's connecting them with an important contact or sharing from my 10 years’ experience as a hardware design engineer, I do whatever I can to help my clients thrive. Over the past 10 years, I've learned how to bring a product from the inception stage to life in various industries, cultivating lifelong relationships.

Abstract: The presentation will discuss innovative 3D printed electronics capabilities, including:

  • The role of additive electronics manufacturing in Industry 4.0
  • The increasing synergy between the additive manufacturing of electronics and the IoT
  • Industry timelines for production-scale 3D printed electronics
 
9:15AM
On-Going Cleanliness Testing on Production Hardware

Speaker: Mike Bixenman, Kyzen
Bio:
 Dr. Michael Bixenman (aka Dr. Mike) is known to many as the world’s leading expert in cleaning electronic circuit assemblies and advanced packages.  He is also one of the industry’s leading authorities on the design of electronic assembly, cleaning materials and process integration. In fact, Dr. Mike literally wrote the book on electronics manufacturing process cleaning standards (Cleaning & Contamination Process Guide).  
Abstract: The performance and cost advances over the past 20 years have enabled technologies to advance beyond what anyone could have imagined. In spite of these technology advances, the cleanliness standards that contractors rely on to ensure the design, production, and quality of next-generation Class 2 & 3 electronic hardware has remained unchanged. As technologies advance, the companies who build the device need guidance on what to do and how to do it.  
 
Flux residues trapped under low standoff leadless components on Pb-Free assemblies may still be active due to blocked outgassing channels, even when using a no-clean solder paste. Quantifying the risk of site-specific residues under problematic components is commonly done during the materials and process validation using chemical and electrical test methods. Process verification and validation are done to characterize and prove out the process on the materials used to build production hardware. Once the printed circuit assembly is placed into production, process control test methods to assure conformance are lacking. 


11:00AM
BGA’s, LGA
’s, QFN/DFN’s – Oh My, Can Traditional DFM Survive 
Speaker: Dale Lee, Plexus Corporation
Bio: 
Dale is a Senior Staff DFX Strategy Engineer with Plexus Corporation primarily involved with DFX analysis, root cause failure analysis and definition/correlation of design, process and tooling impacts on assembly processes and manufacturing yields.
Abstract: Today’s electronic product designs are rapidly increasing the use of bottom terminated components (BTC’s), whether they are collapsible/non-collapsible ball grid array (BGA), solder bump grid array (BGA?), land grid array (LGA), quad-flatpack no-lead (QFN) or dual-flatpack no-lead (DFN) component packaging technologies.  However, with some BTC package designs vary greatly in solder pad design and pitch within the same package.  This variability impacts the ability to incorporate good DFM practices and selection of applicable assembly workmanship rules for these and other standard BTC component package designs. This presentation will highlight impact elements these component technologies have on the assembly, cleaning and inspection processes and what actions can be made during the DFM and NPI process to minimize yield impacts on the manufacturing process.


1:30PM
Women in the Electronics Industry

Speaker: Billi Curtin, ITW Contamination Control Electronics
Bio: 
Women can’t be truly successful in the electronics industry, can they?  Billi Curtin sure thinks so. As a Regional Sales Manager for ITW Contamination Control Electronics, manufacturers of the Chemtronics, Techspray, and Plato brands, Billi is responsible for developing and executing the sales strategy of precision cleaners and associated consumables within the electronics market.

Abstract: It is not easy being a woman in the electronics industry.  We are strong ladies who have chosen to flaunt convention and work in a traditionally male-dominated field.  However in doing so, we often struggle with feelings of isolation, frustration, and anger. But why? Is it due to the patronizing comments from male coworkers, the gender wage gap, the lack of work-life balance, or simply because the “thick skin” you’ve had to develop over the years isn’t really that impervious?Regardless of the reasons, tapping into sources of empowerment, not blame, are key.

Completely bypassing social commentary on gender issues, this presentation will focus on tools and techniques to identify personal strengths and leverage them to neutralize gender-bias, silence your critics, avoid gender-based pitfalls without ostracism in the workplace, influence and lead (even without authority), and gain recognition and respect from your male counterparts.


3:00PM
Rework 101
Speaker:
 Viswam Puligandla
Get an exclusive look at the latest SMTA online training course, Rework 101, to close out the expo!
Bio: Industry veteran, Viswam Puligandla, Ph.D., will step through the basic rework process for both SMT and through-hole components. 
Abstract: Learn about critical temperature and moisture considerations, heating methods, types of acceptance criteria, and more. This course is intended for entry-level technicians or operators, engineers new to the industry, or even someone who has been away from the process for a while.
Topics Covered:

  • Rework, Repair and Modification Definitions
  • Rework Temperature Considerations
  • Moisture Sensitivity
  • Rework Equipment
  • Basic Process Steps
  • Rework Process Flow Chart Examples
  • Rework of Surface Mount Components
  • Rework of Insertion Mount Components
  • Board Repair
  • Acceptance Criteria

Abstract

Digital Computed Tomography, or CT Scanning, has advanced in equipment and techniques to such an extent that it has now become the method of choice in many applications where workmanship, fabrication, and component defects are difficult and sometimes otherwise impossible to find.
This presentation will discuss the current state of the technology (hardware as well as software); some of the basic physics underlying the methodology; and relative strengths and weaknesses of CT Scanning versus other methods, from the standpoint of results as well as cost. Numberous examples will be shown, with emphasis on PCBA and PCBF failure analysis and defect detection.
