Handling Moisture Sensitive Devices & PCBs – Without Failure Online Webinar

January 22, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

| £65 Book a place for this online webinar

Fine pitch surface mount components and printed circuit boards all absorb moisture at different rates. During soldering moisture turns to water vapour and can generate considerable internal stress which may lead to premature failure. In the case Quad Flat Packs (QFPs) and Plastic Ball Grid Arrays (PBGAs) the resulting defect is often referred to as “popcorning” due to the sound of steam escaping from the package. When printed circuit boards outgas you see minor soldering faults, full delamination, blistering of the board or very subtle via hole failure
Considerable research into the correct procedures to minimize problems with bare boards and components has culminated in IPC standards to help guide engineers to reduce the possibility of failure. Bob has put together a session on each of the issues associated with the prevention of failure, correct onsite operating procedures and the equipment than can be used to store products and eliminate failures of this type

Presented by Bob Willis

Topics includes:

Component and PCB failures
Baking components and PCBs
Moisture absorption rate and loss
Impact of baking on solderability
Methods of moisture absorption
Benefits of dry storage
Baking assemblies prior to rework
Storage methods and failure analysis

Who should attend?

If you are involved in SMT assembly as a Line Manager, Process Engineer or QA then this workshop will add real benefit to your objectives to improve end of line defect levels. This is particularly true if you are subcontracting your products for assembly, you need to know what to check during your in process audits. It will allow you to take the steps required to put in place the correct tools to analysis the process and inspection procedures for on or offshore manufacture
