is Proud to Present an Educational and Networking Event...
Chapter Dinner Meeting
Its been twenty-seven years since
cleaning made its dramatic exit and no-clean flux technology made its
debut for much of the electronic assembly industry. Today, modern assembly
and component designs have lower residue tolerances than ever before
which has resulted in the revival of cleaning and cleanliness testing.
This presentation will review common
failure mechanisms associated with assembly residues including the three
basic Electrical Chemical Migration failure models (dendritic growth,
parasitic leakage, and CAF). Two case histories will be presented.
· How a solvent-centric
NASA contractor switched from a solvent cleaning process to an aqueous
cleaning process. Test results from both processes were submitted to
NASA with surprising results.
· How a contract manufacturer
was sued by their customer for in-field product failures and how a $0.03
process could have saved millions.
This presentation will also review
the future of the electronic assembly industry. The anticipated explosive
growth of IOT, Industry 4.0, Wearables, Automotive ADAS systems, and
other future connected devices promises to recharge the EMS industry.
More assembly and more cleaning is in our future.
