Tips & Tricks: Water Contamination and Flux Expiry

Jason Fullerton, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions

First, can water contamination cause failure? Absolutely! Rainwater contains much higher electrochemically active content than the deionized water used for cleaning PCB assemblies and can lead to corrosion and dendritic growth. If discovered before introduction to the service environment, cleaning may be possible, and the assemblies may be able to be salvaged. Exposure to rainwater in the service environment is a sure path to failure unless the assembly has been ruggedized against such exposures as part of the design... More >

Powerful Prototypes: Moisture Sensitivity—What’s the Risk, and What Can You Do About It?

Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits

I recently traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana, for a week of beignets, fried food, and urban exploration. It’s a good thing that parts of the exploration came in the form of walking as some level of exercise was needed to compensate for the lack of greens and heavy emphasis on the word “fried” that went along with most of the food.

APR. 29 WEBINAR: Flexibility in the Manufacturing Process
The automatic optical inspection of solder joints after the selective soldering process is increasingly becoming the focus of process optimization. Regardless of whether the solder joints are realized using induction, laser or piston soldering processes or miniature waves, the quality of the selective solder joints must be evaluated automatically and reliably. How can selective solder joints be inspected automatically and reliably? Which technologies are used in the flexible 2D/3D camera modules for selective solder joint inspection? Learn this and more during the Goepel webinar on April 29th. Click to Register.
