Engineers often face the difficult challenge of meeting automotive industry design guidelines while designing for severe operating environments and optimizing cost. Harsh environmental conditions, such as corrosive coastline humidity and road salt, can impact the performance of electrical systems in vehicles and EV charging stations.
Conformal coatings provide critical systems with the protection needed to withstand the toughest conditions and meet industry design standards, including IPC-CC-830 (electronics design) and UL 94 (flammability). This session will explore how conformal coatings can be a cost-effective solution to help key systems, including battery management systems (BMS), power inverters and charging stations, function reliably.

About 200 kilometers (125 miles) north of Mexico City lies Queretaro, an area rich in history, with stone streets and public squares, and which twice has been the country’s capital. But it’s also quickly becoming a global capital of electronics manufacturing, especially aeronautics, and was the location for the first IPC Day Mexico this past June.
Seven microelectronics firms received nearly $10 million in combined funding to commercialize technologies of interest to the U.S. military services as winners of the Defense Business Accelerator (DBX) Microelectronics Challenge. This groundbreaking initiative is funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) and led by the U.S. Partnership for Assured Electronics (USPAE).
