Saturn Electronics Corporation will hold a PCB reliability webinar on Friday, November 16, 2018, at 10-11:30 am EST.
The webinar, “Auditing your PCB Supply Base for Reliability: Tips and Tricks from an Insider,” is inspired by the technical presentation given by Saturn at the SMTAI in Rosemont, Illinois.
Auditing a PCB fabricator can be very difficult given the differences in methodologies between suppliers. Furthermore, the complex process typically enables primarily procedural audits.
In this technical session, we aim to “pull back the curtain” to teach auditors how to ask simple questions that drive critical answers towards the reliability of a potential supplier’s products.
Presenter Yash Sutariya has been in the PCB fabrication industry for the greater part of his career in many positions from the manufacturing side to management and will share his “tricks and tips” for auditing PCB fabricators.

Consumers wanted a reliable car that wouldn’t break down on the road; a computer that wouldn’t crash; a phone network that wouldn’t drop our calls; the plane we were hurtling across the sky in to stay in the air and land safely, with the wheels down. In retrospect, those seem rather simple wants, and the industry certainly wants to deliver.

A popular definition of reliability is “The quality of being trustworthy or of performing consistently well.” Upfront engineering is of utmost importance in developing a design that will endure its intended life cycle. On the other hand, the manufacturing of that design is just as critical.
