As part of the Distinguished Speaker Series, Mike Konrad will be presenting:
How to Improve Circuit Assembly Reliability in the Relative World of Harsh Environments
While there is universal agreement that environments such as space, automotive, and down-hole represent the definition of harsh environments, for some circuit assemblies, even an indoor office environment can be harsh. Every circuit assembly has a "residue tolerance". Design, materials, component density, and other factors all influence an assembly's tolerance for residues. This paper will review the primary residue-related failure mechanisms and how to avoid them. This paper will also present evaluation methods to determine an assembly's residue tolerance.
Mike's presentation will take place in the Spotlight Theatre located on the show floor.
