IPC Technical Education: PCB Troubleshooting


Reading time ( words)

On November 2, 2016, IPC will present a technical course titled "PCB Troubleshooting: Advanced Problem-Solving." The course will address many costly defects you may encounter, including: interconnect separation, delamination, wedge voids, plating folds, micro-voids, and hole-wall pull-away. Root cause is not always readily apparent, and participants will learn to trace problems through the manufacturing process — and prevent them.

  • Explore a range of electrodeposition defects, such as mouse bites, pitting, and domed or crown plating.
  • Learn about solderability and other assembly-related issues, such as outgassing, black pad, creep corrosion and blow holes
  • Gain strategies to address solder mask peeling, poor circuit trace coverage, skips, bubbles, and poor adhesion in nickel gold plating

This full-day course will benefit team members involved in PCB fabrication and assembly.

Registration includes a copy of the instructor’s PowerPoint presentation and access to all activities at PCB Carolina. Class will be held in conjunction with this exhibition, which is presented by the local chapter of the IPC Designers Council. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the additional technical education offered by exhibits. For more information about the event: www.pcbcarolina.com

Mark Thompson has been in bare board fabrication for over 30 years. He is now laying out printed circuit boards at Monsoon Solutions, a high-tech design bureau near Seattle, Washington. With Mark’s extensive hands-on knowledge of PCB manufacturing, he brings a unique perspective to PCB design. In this discussion with the I-Connect007 editorial team, Mark shares what’s important from a process engineer’s point of view, and how to stay on top of evaluating and benchmarking your manufacturing process, along with insights from his new role as a designer.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: 5G and Loss Minimisation

03/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Bringing a specialised technical area into sharp focus, this month’s topic was “5G and the understanding of loss minimisation at the PCB level,” with papers on dielectric material, copper foil, and modelling solutions. The webinar was moderated by EIPC board member Paul Waldner managing director of Multiline International Europa, who admitted that he had managed to get a haircut especially for the occasion!
