Upcoming IPC Webinar- High Reliability: Solving Problems with Reliability, Repair and Rework in the Lead-Free Era

High Reliability: Solving Problems with Reliability, Repair and Rework in the Lead-Free Era
Cheryl Tulkoff, DfR Solutions
Wednesday, February 16
10:00 am–11:00 am, Central time

This presentation provides a focused but comprehensive discussion on potential reliability issues that can arise within lead-free processes. All areas of potential risk are examined. For each reliability concern, a brief description is provided, followed by the current state of industry knowledge and an opportunity for risk mitigation based upon the product design, materials, complexity, volumes and customer expectations of reliability. A final summary provides a roadmap for ensuring reliability of lead-free product.

What You Will Learn
  • SAC — background and alternative alloys
  • PCBs — surface finishes, laminates, PTH barrel cracking and CAF, pad cratering, ECM
  • Components — concerns, moisture and temperature sensitivity
  • Solders — second generation alloys, copper dissolution, mixed assembly
  • Wave and Rework — lead-free solder fountain, hole-fill challenges
  • Reliability — shock/drop test results, SAC vs. SnPb, results of alternative alloys, thermal cycling
  • Fatigue — shock and vibration, microstructural stability, HALT/HASS
