SMTA (Surface Mount Technology Association) all day Chapter Meeting at Textron Defense Systems on Tues., June 26, 2012:

Jun 18, 2012

Reliability and Failure Analysis Seminar: Lessons Learned in Manufacturing
Presented by Universal Instruments Corporation’s Advanced Process Laboratory
Hosted by Textron Defense Systems, 201 Lowell St., Wilmington, MA

Universal Instruments Corp’s Advanced Process Laboratory has observed countless failures in electronics manufacturing. From fine pitch printing, to PoP, 01005 chip defects, and high Tg laminate failures. These failures combined with internal research have provided a unique perspective for design for manufacturability and reliability. These lessons will be presented to the class when we discuss material selection, current electronics research, and failure analysis case studies. We will touch on design considerations for many advanced assembly processes as well as discussing types of analytical techniques that can be used for materials characterization.

Technical Presentations will take place in the TDS Mahoney Auditorium
Tours of TDS Product Showcase will be given before presentations start

Agenda will be as follows:

  • 8:00 - 8:30 Registration and Sign-In
  • 8:15 - 9:00 Tours through Textron Product Showcase
