Uyemura Expands US Pacific Rim Service Capacity


Reading time ( words)

Jose Alonzo Garcia is Uyemura’s new technical service engineer for a key territory that includes Northern California, Washington, and Oregon. The appointment was formalized May 8th by Uyemura Vice President Don Gudeczauskas.

Garcia’s responsibilities include process troubleshooting, line audits, chemical installations and assisting customers with root cause analysis. 

Garcia holds a Bachelor of Science, Chemical Engineering from San Jose State University. Most recently, he was with Streamline Circuits, a manufacturer of rigid, rigid-flex, and multilayer PCBs, where he applied SPC principles to optimize electroplating processes. In late 2016, Garcia helped qualify a new gold bath in the company’s ENIG line. The new line was TAM-55, an advanced, low-acidity immersion gold that protects the solderability of the electroless nickel in an ENIG deposit.

Garcia has a special interest in kinetics and reactor design, FMEA, and environmental management.

Microvias: Links of Faith are Not Created Equally

07/18/2019 | Jerry Magera and J.R. Strickland, Motorola Solutions Inc.
Microvias connect adjacent copper layers to complete electrical paths. There are copper-filled microvias, which can be stacked to form connections beyond adjacent copper layers, and staggered microvias, which stitch adjacent copper layers with paths that meander on the layers between the microvias. This article discusses the various laser-drilled microvias and presents SEM photographs to begin the search for the root cause of weak copper interface.

Stacked Microvia Reliability: Ongoing Work and Upcoming IPC Conference

04/24/2019 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
One year ago, Happy Holden's review of the 2018 IPC High-Reliability Forum reported the presentation of J.R. Strickland and Jerry Magera, who described research at MSI Applied Technology into overcoming the risk of stacked microvia failures escaping standard quality assurance procedures. Their report provided a basis for the IPC white paper IPC-WP-023, which addressed reliability issues associated with stacked microvias and included data collected from several other printed circuit manufacturers.
