IPC Subcommittee to Host Open Forum on Weak Microvia Interface during IPC APEX EXPO


Reading time ( words)

The IPC V-TSL-MVIA Weak Interface Microvia Failures Technology Solutions Subcommittee, formed this year, is working to identify the risks, causes, and mitigation of failures due to a weak interface between the plated copper at the bottom of a microvia and the underlying copper surface. The activity grew out of the development of IPC-WP-023, a white paper that cast a light on how a weak microvia interface is a hidden reliability threat.

The subcommittee will hold an open forum for industry to learn about its activities as well as its planned path forward. Attendees will be invited to share their own issues regarding weak microvia interfaces and will learn how to participate on the subcommittee.

Crowded Congressional Calendar Affects Industry Priorities

07/24/2019 | Chris Mitchell, IPC VP, Global Government Relations
More than five months remain in 2019, but U.S. congressional leaders are already running out of time as they face a long list of must-pass bills before year’s end. Although some of these bills do not affect the electronics industry, some of them do, and the overall agenda does affect the opportunities and risks we face.
