Presentation Overview:
Flexible circuits were originally designed as replacements for traditional wire harnesses.  From the beginnings to the present, growth and proliferation of flexible circuit applications in all industries has increased rapidly.  Today flexible circuits can be found in all manner of devices, products, and industries across the globe.  Along with the growth of flexible circuits, the complexity of the flexible circuits and their assembly has also increased dramatically, as well as the tools, materials, and processes used in performing their component assembly.  As assembly complexity increases, new methods must be developed to deal with special material and processing considerations of working with flexible circuits.  It becomes critical to overcome these issues by designing in assembly capabilities. 
What we will cover: 
•           A brief history of flexible circuits, with emphasis on design criteria for assembly
•           Several case studies of challenging flexible circuit design applications
•           An overview of flexible circuit design considerations for modern SMT assembly

Non-Destructive BGA/Area Array Component Rework

 

Abstract: In the past 20 years, such mundane operations as soldering, desoldering and component replacement have become complicated by extreme micro-miniaturization, the use of lead-free solders, new thermally challenging pc boards, heat-sinking bottom terminated components and intricate component packages that are difficult to rework or install. One area that presents unique challenges is BGA/Area Array rework. Modern boards that use these components are more technically demanding than ever, requiring skilled operators who are highly competent at accomplishing delicate, intricate soldering and rework tasks. Unfortunately, many operators will cause more damage to the assembly or components due to his/her rework actions. As a result, many manufacturers struggle to repair or rework boards, opting to throw away lower value boards or hire outside contractors to perform the more difficult repairs. This presentation will review current techniques and procedures for performing highly reliable, high-quality rework and repair on some of the more difficult BGA packages, and will include live demonstrations of BGA rework using available convective and infrared heating techniques. The presentation will address typical BGA/area array components, heating technologies (convection and infrared), the importance of bottom side preheating, flux application, solder paste stenciling, device alignment methods and thermal profiling techniques, followed by a live demonstration of BGA rework.

Medical Electronics Symposium 2019  +

Location
Lorain County Community College
Elyria , OH


2019 Symposium Details Coming Soon

The human body is an extremely complex "electrical (neurological) system", with companies continuing their quest to understand and improve capability as related to neural interface, basically connecting the human body directly into computers! There is no question, capabilities in smart phone/watch technologies connected to the internet erases any doubt of the potential to connect people to computers.

With the brain being the human equivalent of the "MicroProcessor", semiconductor companies such as IBM, Intel, MicroChip and MicroSemi have been well aware of potential for connectivity. Others have taken knowledge of neural interface to help humans manage their internal electrical systems, including Medtronic, Philips and Abbott, with a range of pacemakers, defibrillators and neural therapies.

Expanding the potential scope of linking the brain to computers and to the internet has attracted the likes of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, MicroSoft, Neuralink and others, adding to the list that already includes J&J, G.E., T.I., Stryker, and Edwards. MicroProcessors and other ASIC Chips, coupled with MEMS and Sensors, are now seen as the “next big thing” over the next 5 years looking at the Internet of Things.

 

This event will bring together experts to cover topics such as:

* Forecasting and Analytics

* MEMS, Sensors and Integrated Circuits

* Implantable Devices and Neural Interface

* Medical Robotics, Equipment, and Prosthetics

* Advanced Materials and Reliability

 


June 4 - 6

International Conference for Electronics Enabling Technologies 2019  +

Location
Markham , ON Canada


The International Conference for Electronics Enabling Technologies (ICEET), formerly ICSR, is a highly technical three-day event in Toronto, ON, Canada.

Electronics products are becoming ubiquitous in many aspects of modern life, including smart devices, internet of everything, wearables and self-driving vehicles, as well as the more established (but still growing areas) of communications, entertainment, medical devices, lighting, automotive, avionics and computing. The growth is largely driven by the continued increase in density of integrated circuits, the applications that utilize the greater functionality, and by steadily decreasing power consumption and cost.

The forerunner conference of ICEET, the International Conference for Solder and Reliability (ICSR), grew to be a premier technical conference for all aspects of solders, metallurgy and the solder interconnect process, through the period of conversion to lead-free solder, driven by RoHS and WEEE. The ICEET Technical Committee intends to continue the tradition of technical excellence, and broaden the scope to the wider enabling technologies, including design for assembly, test and reliability (DfX), packaging, assembly challenges for high density PCBs and components, potting and other methods to achieve high reliability in aggressive environments.

Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials 2019  +

Location
College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center
College Park , MD


Thanks for attending the Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials June 26-28, 2018. Plans are underway for the 2019 event. Check back here for details.

Counterfeit Symposium Panel Discussion

Dr. Michael Azarian, CALCE, speaks during the panel discussion 'How is AS6171 Being Flowed Down? Challenges with AS671 Accreditation--Can it Handle Obsolete Part?' at the 2018 Symposium.

 


 

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.

 



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.
