Bob Neves of Microtek Laboratories China to Speak at IPC High Reliability Conference


Reading time ( words)

Microtek Laboratories China's Bob Neves, chairman and CTO, will present a technical seminar entitled “Testing the Reliability of Automotive & Transportation PCBs” at the IPC Southeast Asia High Reliability Conferences. The conferences will be conducted at the Eastin Grand Hotel on the 29th of August in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and again at the Grand Fourwings Convention Hotel in Bangkok on the 31st of August. The High Reliability Conferences at each location are free of charge.

Microtek is a world leader in testing CCL base materials, PCBs and PCBAs for the automotive supply chain. Microtek’s commitment to automotive and transportation testing includes the use of 10 thermal shock chambers equipped for “Single Hole” or “Daisy Chain” reliability testing along with 28 humidity and HAST chambers, each equipped with 256 channels of CAF/ECM/SIR testing capability up to 2000VDC. 

In addition, Microtek has installed a 13-zone, active-cooled, Heller reflow oven at its Changzhou, China facility to accomplish reflow preconditioning for test samples. The new reflow oven is also equipped to use an inert nitrogen environment for reflow that protects the soldermask and surface finish from degradation due to oxidation during reflow exposure.

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.

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.

An Examination of Glass-fiber and Epoxy Interface Degradation in Printed Circuit Boards

07/12/2019 | Bhanu Sood, Michael Osterman, and Michael Pecht, Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.
