This paper describes how we have used this test vehicle to evaluate Conformal Coating materials, compare application equipment along with providing site enablement and optimization methods for the conversion to high reliability/minimized cost Conformal Coating processes.
Seven assembly process variables were investigated. The three most critical variables were identified and their impacts will be discussed. Practical manufacturing techniques that maximize production "Return on Invested Capital" ROIC will also be discussed. IPC-CC-830 and ASTM D3359 standards were used to execute the test plan.
Key words: Conformal Coating, Optimization Methods, Process Yields, Return on Invested Capital (ROIC)
