Reading time ( words)

The SMTA is pleased to announce that the program for SMTA International is finalized and available on-line at www.smta.org/smtai and registration is open. The conference will be held at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois on September 27 - October 1, 2015. This year's program allows the attendee to choose from 19 courses, 120 technical papers, three focused symposia, and numerous complimentary offerings throughout the conference and exhibition.

The SMTA International conference includes focused technical tracks covering Advanced Packaging Technology, Evolving Technologies, Lean Initiatives, Flux, Solder, Adhesives, Harsh Environment Applications, Inspection Technologies, Lead-Free Soldering Technology, Manufacturing Excellence, and Substrates/PCB Technology.  Technical sessions will be held on Monday through Thursday.  Tutorials are half-day educational courses offered on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday. Thursday’s tutorial on “LED, BGA, and QFN Assembly and Inspection” is free for SMTA and IPC members who register in advance. 

Informative and focused symposia make up part of the technical conference and include the Evolving Technologies Summit, Harsh Environments Symposium, and Lead-Free Soldering Technology Symposium. 

IPC will once again co-locate its Fall Standards Development Committee Meetings during SMTA International. This landmark collaborative effort by both associations has proven to benefit the electronics manufacturing industry as a whole.

Over 160 supplier companies will display equipment, materials, and services at the Electronics Exhibition, which will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, September 29 - 30.  Attendees are invited to join Tech Tours to get an inside look at the latest in placement equipment and inspection technology.  Free lunch will also be provided both days on the show floor.

Many additional events at SMTA International are free to all attendees including the L3 Series of Complimentary Sessions, SMTA - NPL Solder Paste and Solder Joint Automatic Inspection Experience, Women’s Leadership Connection and Robotics Alley.

First time attendees can take an extra 10% off conference registration. The Early Bird registration deadline is August 28, 2015.

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.

How to Benefit From Robotic Soldering Processes

10/28/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Webinars are in vogue! But in Pete Starkey's experience, the master of the technical webinar with many years’ experience of delivering first-rate events is Bob Willis—electronics assembly specialist, soldering expert, and provider of training and consultancy in electronics manufacture. Here, Pete recaps Bob’s presentation on the upcoming robotic soldering experience.
