Webinar: Flexible Circuit Board Design & Assembly with Lead-Free Alloys  +



Bob WillisMonday 29th April @ 2:30pm - 4:00pm GMT (9:30am - 11:00am US Eastern Time)

Presenter: Bob Willis, SMTA Europe

Overview

Flexible circuits is another packaging technology which has seen a growing and wider acceptance in the electronics industry. The advantages of surface mount reduced weight; decreased size can be further enhanced by flexible circuitry. In many cases, it is a misconception that flexible circuits have to flex, they don't; many flexibles are designed purely to aid the circuit design and assembly into the final product. In this case the substrate is only flexed or formed once. The range of constructions for circuit manufacture are wide but the basics are similar to existing printed circuit production. The design and selection of the manufacturing methods can affect the final cost of the circuit and need to be considered in detail prior to manufacture. Where design departments have limited experience useful reference material is available to engineers worldwide with the release of Flexible Circuit Technology, Third Edition by Joe Fjelstad and other publications.

 

Topics include:

  • Flexible Design for assembly
  • Manual assembly and soldering
  • Automatic assembly process requirements
  • The need for baking flexible circuits
  • Flexible circuit pallets for automatic assembly
  • Screen printing, placement, reflow soldering & AOI
  • Manual hand soldering and de-soldering
  • Rework of conventional and surface mount
  • Solder joint Inspection
  • Process defects on flexible circuits and during assembly

In preparation for the event and to ensure you are equipped to get maximum benefit from the event, read our Webinar Guide.

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.
