IPC Europe Forum Call for Papers: Innovation for Reliability


Reading time ( words)

IPC is seeking presentations for its 3rd Annual High Reliability Forum for Electronics Subjected to Harsh Use Environments. IPC is interested in presentations on the following topics:

  • Mechanical stress reliability — vibration and shock Methods (software) for predicting reliability
  • Failure Modes Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • Thermal Mitigation
  • Thermal Stress Test Methods
  • HDI Reliability
  • Microvia Failures and Testing Methods
  • Microvia Reliability
  • Design for Reliability
  • Design Rules for Spacing and Staggered Vias
  • Failures Related to Laminate Materials
  • Materials Compatibility
  • System-level effects on Solder Joint Reliability
  • Assembly Tests for Solder Joint Reliability

Presentations should be noncommercial and describe significant results from experiments, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain technical and/or appropriate test results. Presentations should be 45 minutes, including time for questions and answers.

Staff from companies such as NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Honeywell Aerospace, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, Motorola and Raytheon have presented papers at past IPC High Reliability Forums.

If you’re interested in presenting at this important industry event, please submit a brief abstract along with the title of your presentation to AliciaBalonek@ipc.org.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
