Tolerance Mistaken: Impacts of not properly addressing limitations of material, industry standards and assembly process limitations

Speaker: Dale Lee, Plexus Corporation

Electronic assemblies today are smaller, lighter with increased functionality per unit area and/or volume.  The rate of new technology adoption is increasing through develop ever smaller packages with finer lead spacing and substrates with finer lines and spaces.  However, design methods, industry standards, materials and manufacturing processes utilized during the product development and production process have not progressed to meet these new demands and thus many of the tolerance margins that were considered insignificant and acceptable in the past are now critical to high yield, reliable products.  This presentation will highlight issues with today’s electronic designs and impacts when material limitations, industry standards and assembly tolerances are not adequately address during design, PCB fabrication, assembly and test.

Additively Manufactured Electronic (AME) Circuits and Devices: Technology and Performance

Speaker: Jaim Nulman, Nano Dimension

Electronic circuits and devices have been manufactured by the layering, drilling (laser) printing the conductive pattern process followed by component mounting: from IC, to capacitors, coils, and transformers . These are commonly known as Printed Circuit Boards (PCB). Additive manufacturing offers a different approach that enables the manufacturing of electronic circuits and devices not only with enhanced-, but also with unique- functionality that is not possible in PCBs or the cost is too high.  This presentation will discuss the technology, applications, and electrical characterization for AMEs (Additively Manufactured Electronic) circuits and devices. This includes the manufacturing process compared to PCBs, new characterization techniques, reliability, and applications from DC to several GHz. Reliability testing using thermal, humidity, and vibration cycles shows no degradation on the electrical performance of the AME circuits. The AME applications to be shown include in AME power transformers, built in DC and RF capacitors, RF transmission lines, in AME coax “cable”, Internet of Things, coils and antennas, etc. In RF applications, the in AME circuit capacitors show superior performance compared to similar devices produced by mounting commercial capacitors on PCBs, in addition these AME capacitors exhibit less than 1% variability from AME to AME circuit with breakdown voltages in excess of 1KV. Similarly, IoT AME transmitters and receivers show over 10% points better transmission rate success as compared to same commercially available PCB designs.

From Industry 3.0 to 4.0: Data Deluge to Value-Realization

Speaker: Andrew Scheuermann, Arch Systems

Industry 3.0 brought computers to the manufacturing floor, the ability to program in sequences of steps and have them executed automatically.  It also brought the ability to automatically write and log historical records in principle useful for all new levels of organization and efficiency.  But a lasting artifact of Industry 3.0 are machines with all varying levels of 'smartness' i.e. different extents of computer use, different operating systems, different interfaces, different languages.  On top of this, manufacturers created sprawling processes. Operators naturally used different naming schemes, units, recipes, etc.  This created a data deluge of non-standard information that has given more headaches than help to most manufacturers.  Yet some are creating standardization on top of legacy and incompatible machines, implementing data exchanges that take this raw data and convert it into new standards.  They are then using this clean, ready-data to drive end-to-end process automation and predictive analytics, the bedrocks of Industry 4.0.  How are they doing it?  The presentation will review emerging trends in machine interfaces, data transformations, and data exchanges and how they are accelerating value-creation in industry 4.0.

February 10

Webinar: PCB Outgassing and How to Test Bare or Assembled Boards  +

Organized by SMTA Europe



Bob WillisMonday 10th February @ 2:30pm - 4:00pm GMT (9:30am - 11:00am US Eastern Time)

Presenter: Bob Willis, SMTA Europe

Overview

Printed circuit boards outgas during soldering causing solder voids, solder balls and other process problems. Outgassing can occur in wave, selective and reflow soldering and it’s important first to non-destructively test samples to find the root cause. It’s possible to test bare or assembled boards to examine the potential for failure and eliminate some of the popular misconception in industry. There are some different methods which can easily be conducted in manufacture before proceeding to costly laboratory analysis and we show you how to do it and the typical results you can find!

Topics include:

  • Outgassing from vias, through holes and solder masks

  • How to test samples in manufacture

  • Test method procedures

  • Type of defects and how they can appear with tin/lead and lead-free alloys

  • Void formation in wave selective and PIHR joints

  • Correct specification of your boards

After the webinar there is a Q&A session which provides ample time for all delegate questions to be answered. However, if a delegate has a process example they would like cover in the webinar it will need to be provided in advance of the session.

The webinar will run for between 60-90min with question and answer session. The webinars are limited to 100 delegates/companies. A copy of each of the slides presented will be provided after the webinar.

Capital (DC) Chapter: Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronic Solutions, to Present at SMTA Capital Chapter Meeting on February 20th  +

Location
PACE Worldwide



 The SMTA Capital Chapter is excited to host a Chapter Meeting on February 20th from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM at PACE Worldwide in Elkridge, MD. Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronic Solutions, will be presenting “Advances in Lead-Free Solder Technologies for High Reliability Applications.”
 
This presentation will explore topics relating to lead-free alloy development, enhancements in solder paste performance, and processing differences between these alloys and typical SAC and tin-lead alloys.
 
In the age of environmental regulations that have driven the electronics industry to widely adopt tin-silver-copper (SAC) lead-free solders, high reliability applications continue to use legacy tin-lead solder alloys. However, evolving designs, service environments, and reliability requirements have driven development of new types of solder alloys. In addition, shrinking package sizes requiring increased power densities have created the need for high electrical reliability and low voiding from solder paste fluxes.
 
Jason Fullerton has been with MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions as a Customer Technical Support Engineer since 2013. He earned his Bachelor's Degree in Manufacturing Engineering from GMI Engineering & Management Institute (now Kettering University) in Flint, MI. He has worked in manufacturing operations in the automotive, high-reliability, and commercial electronics industries since 1993, specializing in SMT and Wave Soldering process engineering. Jason is a member of the SMTA and served as an officer in the Philadelphia chapter from 2011 - 2014. He is also an ASQ Certified Quality Engineer, Six Sigma Black Belt, and Reliability Engineer.
 
Jason has published and presented at a number of SMTA and IPC meetings and is recognized by the SMTA as a “Distinguished Speaker.” He is a participating member of the IPC J-STD-001 Task Group and received a Distinguished Committee Service Award for work related to development of changes to the ionic cleanliness requirements in J-STD-001G.
 
Don’t miss out on dinner and a facility tour prior to the presentation. Registration is $20 for members, $10 for students and $30 for non-members. Registration fee will be waived if you join the Capital Chapter during this event!

Webinar: BGA & Area Array Failures, Causes & Corrective Actions  +

Organized by SMTA Europe



Bob WillisMonday 16th March @ 2:30pm - 4:00pm GMT (9:30am - 11:00am US Eastern Time)

Presenter: Bob Willis, SMTA Europe

Overview

Ball Grid Array or area array packages have been used in the industry for many years and are widely available for commercial and military applications. Everyone blames the BGA for failure, often because you can’t see under the package but is it the real failure in your process?  Bob will outline the correct assembly process, the most common failure modes and corrective action. Just like surface mount, the use of BGAs can affect printed board layout, assembly, inspection and repair process. However, BGAs provide significant advantages over fine pitch components on assembly yield.

Topics include:

  • Modern Lead-Free Assembly Processes

  • Issues with Plastic BGA, Ceramic BGA, Column Grid Array, Land Grid Arrays

  • Lead-free and tin/lead paste

  • Moisture cracking

  • Effect of incorrect profiling

  • Head in or on Pillow

  • Secondary reflow

  • Hot tearing of joints

  • Voiding in solder joints

After the webinar there is a Q&A session which provides ample time for all delegate questions to be answered. However, if a delegate has a process example they would like cover in the webinar it will need to be provided in advance of the session.

The webinar will run for between 60-90min with question and answer session. The webinars are limited to 100 delegates/companies. A copy of each of the slides presented will be provided after the webinar.

First Expo Speaker:

The Future of the Digital Thread - Industry 4.0

Speaker: Dr. Don Kinard, Lockheed Martin Senior Fellow

For the past 20 years the Digital Thread has enhanced development of manufacturing technologies including robotics, automation, graphical work instructions, AR, optical/laser projection, and more recently, the introduction of laser and structured light scanning. This digital thread has also brought industry to the foothills of the next industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, the revolution of data. The introduction of integrated IT architectures, the application of analytics and AI, as well as the focus on data strategy and data automation will dramatically change the landscape of corporations as they look for these new technologies to provide improved unprecedented insight into performance and the ability to predict and mitigate disruptions. As with previous revolutions some companies will fail to embrace the technology and flounder, and others will ride the data wave to secure their future. 

 

Second Expo Speaker:

See the Heat - Troubleshooting PCB & Electronic Product Design with Thermal Imaging

Speaker: Jerry Feeney, FLIR Systems Inc.

As electronic circuit boards and components get smaller and more powerful, inherent heat can cause failures and significant damage. FLIR Business Development Manager for Science, Jerry Beeney, compares traditional temperature measurement devices with infrared imaging. He uses real-world infrared images and examples to detail how infrared thermography can more easily identify hot spots, allowing for improved thermal management and greater advances in circuit board design.

 

Third Expo Speaker:

CT Scanning: 3 Case Studies

Speaker: Rob Boguski, Datest

Digital Computed Tomography, or CT Scanning, has advanced in both equipment as well as techniques in recent years, such that it has now become the method of choice in many applications where workmanship, fabrication, process, and component-related defects are difficult, and often otherwise virtually impossible to find. Nevertheless misconceptions linger concerning the suitability of CT scanning as a nondestructive test and failure analysis methodology. This presentation will address some of those misconceptions by featuring 3 specific and recent applications of CT scanning, illustrating its wide potential for use as a diagnostic tool. Examples will be shown from the medical/biotech, military/aerospace, and electronics sectors. In each case we will state the specific problem to be addressed; highlight some significant, if not decisive images; and show conclusions drawn from compilation and analysis of the images, with any applicable lessons learned along the way.

Attendees at the 2019 Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials

The symposium is organized by SMTA in conjunction with Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA. This symposium is a valuable resource for 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. Our focus is to provide relevant information to the professionals that can be used for solving problems today while planning for a different business and technology environment in the future.

Changes in electronic supply chain had been fast and furious in the last decades and its impact on the practices of companies is still evolving. It is well understood that, the scourge of counterfeit electronic parts is related to the changes in supply chain but it is only one of the many impacts. This symposium will provide a forum to cover all aspects of changes in the electronic parts supply chain on how an organization performs part selection and management through whole life cycle of the parts. Going beyond anecdotes and examples of counterfeit parts, this symposium focuses on the solutions that are available and are under development by all sectors of the industry.
