SMTA Capital Chapter Tutorial – Supporting High Reliability at the OEM: A PCB Perspective

Apr 30, 2019

The SMTA Capital Chapter and UP Media Group/Circuits Assembly Magazine are pleased to co-sponsor an amazing Chapter Tutorial Program. The tutorial will be held on June 11 and showcase the latest technologies, designs and reliability trends.

Do not miss this full day educational event with presentations by Yaad Eliya and Jim Barry of PCB Technologies. This is your chance to gain knowledge for improvements in reliability, yield and therefore overall product cost. Come learn about PCB advancements from engaging speakers with years of experience and global industry knowledge.

This tutorial is a great value, at half the cost of one at SMTA International and it’s offered right in your backyard! Lunch, coffee breaks, course handouts and a certificate of completion are all included and topics include:

RF/Microwave Design Considerations and Options

Innovative solutions, based on close cooperation between mil/aero designers and the fabricator. Explore implementing air cavity, coin and buried passive components (resistors/ capacitors/ thermocouples/ heaters etc.), in a complex design, including for rigid-flex.

Thermal Mitigations Options at the Raw Card Level

The most extreme temperatures and stress facing the PCBA is often the reflow cycle. However, the “post-reflow” or operating temperatures facing the product in the field can be detrimental and even disastrous. Learn how smaller, more complex designs are creating thermal mismatches and intense temperature. Explore options in design, materials, and “adder options” such as heatsinks and coins to mitigate temperature.

Reliability: Design for Reliability & Design for Manufacturability

A focus on two parts of the PCB process: the design and how it affects product performance, and what happens once the design reaches the PCB manufacturer. Review nonfunctional pads, via fill, stacked vs. staggered, cross-hatched grounds in rigid-flex, conductor routing, and more. Also, how manufacturer processes affect solderability, looking at DC plating vs. reverse pulse, multiple finishes, edge plating, and hole placement.
