Now Available: The July 2018 Edition of PCB007 Magazine


Reading time ( words)

With all the elements that can now affect the solder mask—finer featres, higher temperature solders, final finishes, direct imaging, inkjet—it’s high time to give this final fabrication process a little more attention.

In this July 2018 edition of PCB007 Magazine, our contributors explain how and why solder mask must do its job well—precisely, in fact.

Check it all out this month in PCB007 Magazine, now on the virtual newsstand and available for delivery in your e-mailbox each month by subscribing here.

Dissecting the IPC Regional Survey on PCB Technology Trends

07/15/2019 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Sharon Starr, Denny Fritz, and Mike Carano talk about the global 2018 IPC Technology Trends Report released early this year—the size of the survey, how it was conducted, the general findings, and regional differences. They also shared their takeaways and regional insights, and the industry outlook over the next five to 10 years.

Conventional Exposing: Direct Imaging Solder Mask

07/04/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
When you compare direct imaging of solder mask with contact exposure of solder mask, the positive aspects and the advantages are clear. Without a doubt, direct imaging shortens the throughput time and eliminates artwork production. It also eliminates the costly measurement of the panels and manufacturing of artwork with different scaling factors.

Kelvin Characterization to Accurately Predict Copper Thickness

07/01/2019 | Article by Brandon Sherrieb, Integrated Test Corporation
A few years ago at Integrated Test Corporation, we found that the reaction plan for void fallout at electrical test was ineffective and not standardized. Like many PCB manufacturing facilities (including a Sanmina shop that I used to work at), the reaction plan consisted of cross section analysis to determine the void type.
