The National Physical Laboratory will be holding a webinar on July 17, 2018, at 14:30 (UTC), that will discuss the advantages of using surface insulation resistance (SIR) testing to evaluate assembly processes and materials. It discusses test vehicle design, how to go about the testing, and how to analyze the results.
Conductive anodic filament (CAF) testing will also be covered, including test vehicle design, test procedures and parameters, and failure analysis. The final part of the webinar will cover condensation testing and how it can be used to assess conformal coatings.
The majority of webinars run for between 60-90 minutes, with a Q&A session. The webinars are limited to 100 delegates, so register now, click here.

SAP, mSAP, SLP—what kind of crazy acronyms have we adopted now, and how much do you really need to know? In terms of consumer electronics, there is a good chance that the smartphone attached to your hand at all times contains a PCB fabricated with this technology—or at the very least, the next-generation smartphone that you purchase will utilize mSAP technology.

The procedures described for Rolls Royce were directly comparable with those described for MBDA, and the presenters were unanimous in re-emphasising the importance of working closely with their chosen PCB fabricators at all levels and all stages of design, qualification and production of their circuit boards.
If you wait for a Tom Peters book the way some people (myself included) wait for a new Stephen King novel, then you’re in luck because Tom finally has a new book and it’s a winner. This book covers a myriad of topics in pure Tom Peters fashion. Who but Peters could bring good old meat and potatoes common sense logic to this fast-moving new world order of social media and techno faux-communications?
