Subject-matter experts will provide insights into electronics reliability challenges during the IPC Conference on Solder and Reliability in Costa Mesa, Calif., November 13–14. Presented by IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries®, the conference follows the 7th International Symposium on Tin Whiskers, which will adjourn at noon on November 13 to allow for participation in both events.
IPC Conference on Solder and Reliability will include presentations addressing strategic considerations related to solder alloys, defects, risk mitigation processes and data analysis.
“There is a real urgency in the industry to put practical methodologies in place to improve reliability,” says Sanjay Huprikar, IPC vice president of member success. “Attendees will come away from this conference with new strategies they can take back and implement right away.”
Speakers for the conference include Ron Lasky, Ph.D., and Rick Short, Indium; Cheryl Tulkoff, DfR Solutions; Rich Brooks, GE Oil & Gas; Lenora Toscano, MacDermid Inc.; Larry Bright, MicroSemi; John McMahon, Celestica; James Wade, Intel; Jim Ryan, Integral Technologies; Reza Ghaffarian, Ph.D., Jet Propulsion Laboratory, CalTech; and Michael Neilsen, Sandia National Laboratories.
