iNEMI to Hold Webinar on Assessment of Lead-Free Solder Joint Reliability


Reading time ( words)

The accelerated testing typically done by industry can be very deceptive unless the results can be counted on to somehow reflect performance in service. As far as lead-free solder joints are concerned, this is more often an issue than commonly recognized. In general, reliability engineers need to know when “best in test” is unlikely to mean “best in service,” how large deviations may be, and which comparisons can be counted on to be conservative.

Binghamton University has recently completed a mechanistically justified model for the thermal fatigue of lead-free solder joints which allows for the generalization of observed trends. Even if not used to predict actual life in service, this model leads to recommendations for test protocols and guidelines.

iNEMI will be holding a research webinar on September 28, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. EDT (North America)/5:00 p.m. CEST (Central Europe), that will review some of the leading issues related to testing lead-free solder joints and discuss the Binghamton University model.

The webinar will be conducted by Dr. Peter Borgesen, Professor of Systems Science & Industrial Engineering and a member of the Materials Science program at Binghamton University. His research focuses on the assessment and optimization of reliability.

This webinar is open to members and non-members, and registration is free.  For more information and to register, click here.

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.

Conventional Exposing: Direct Imaging Solder Mask

07/04/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
When you compare direct imaging of solder mask with contact exposure of solder mask, the positive aspects and the advantages are clear. Without a doubt, direct imaging shortens the throughput time and eliminates artwork production. It also eliminates the costly measurement of the panels and manufacturing of artwork with different scaling factors.

Microtek Labs: Providing Trusted Testing in the Chinese Market

06/19/2019 | Barry Matties and Edy Yu, I-Connect007
On a recent visit to Microtek Laboratories' Changzhou facility, Barry Matties, publisher, and Edy Yu from the I-Connect007 China team spoke with chairman and CTO Bob Neves about the changes he has seen living and doing business in China over the past 15 years, and the increased importance of standards and testing as China moves into manufacturing more high-reliability products.
