IPC Technical Education — PCB Troubleshooting


Reading time ( words)

Join IPC on November 2, 2016 for PCB Troubleshooting: Advanced Problem-Solving. The course will address many costly defects you may encounter, including: interconnect separation, delamination, wedge voids, plating folds, micro-voids, and hole-wall pull-away. Root cause is not always readily apparent, and participants will learn to trace problems through the manufacturing process — and prevent them.

  • Explore a range of electrodeposition defects, such as mouse bites, pitting, and domed or crown plating.
  • Learn about solderability and other assembly-related issues, such as outgassing, black pad, creep corrosion and blow holes
  • Gain strategies to address solder mask peeling, poor circuit trace coverage, skips, bubbles, and poor adhesion in nickel gold plating

This full-day course will benefit team members involved in PCB fabrication and assembly.

Registration includes a copy of the instructor’s PowerPoint presentation and access to all activities at PCB Carolina. Class will be held in conjunction with this exhibition, which is presented by the local chapter of the IPC Designers Council. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the additional technical education offered by exhibits. For more information about the event, click here.

Interconnect Reliability Correlation With System Design and Transportation Stress

08/12/2019 | Dr. Paul Wang, Vincent Weng, and Dr. Kim Sang Chim, Mitac International Inc.
Interconnect reliability is very critical to ensure product performance at predefined shipping conditions and user environments. Plating thickness of the compliant pin and the damping mechanism of electronic system design are key success factors for this purpose. This paper discusses design variables—such as pin hard gold plating thickness, motherboard locking mechanism, and damping structure design—to ensure interconnect reliability.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.

How Changing Cleaning Technologies Affect Reliability

07/22/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
At the recent IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit, Andy Shaughnessy spoke with Michael Konrad, founder and president of Aqueous Technologies and a speaker and panelist at the event in Baltimore, Maryland. They discussed Konrad’s presentation and the recent proliferation of cleaning, from solely high-reliability products to Class 1 consumer products.
