Session 2 Agenda for the High-Reliability Cleaning and Coating Conference

Oct 18, 2012

 Industry-leading associations IPC and SMTA jointly announce the agenda for Session 2 of the High-Reliability Cleaning and Coating Conference, scheduled to take place November 13-15, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel – O’Hare in Chicago, IL. The conference is intensely focused on electronics assembly reliability, and the influence of cleaning and coating upon producing reliable hardware.

The use of conformal coatings is considered a method of providing corrosion protection to electrical assemblies used in high-humidity or harsh environments. These coatings are applied to printed circuit boards (PCBs) for various reasons: to protect from moisture and contamination, to minimize dendritic growth, to provide stress relief, and for insulation resistance. 

Advances in miniaturization technologies have had dramatic impacts on our lives. Radios, computers, and telephones that once occupied large volumes now fit in the palm of a hand. Miniaturization allows the use of electronic components in harsh environments and exposes them to more severe temperature variations. This may be driven from requirements for reduced weight/area, simplified interconnection and reliability improvement.  A severe limiting factor to operate electronic systems in this environment is the performance of materials working at high temperature. 

The second session at the cleaning and coating conference addresses conformal coating high-temperature reliability limits, adhesion strength and standardization. 
Jeff Kennedy of Celestica will chair this session. The speakers and topics are as follows:
1. High-Temperature Reliability Limits of Silicon Conformal Coating – Carlos Montemayor, Dow Corning.
2. Investigation of Adhesive Strength of Conformal Coatings – Rich Kraszewski, Plexus Corporation
3. Standardization of Electronic Conformal Coarings in an Aerospace OEM – Hector Valladares, Honeywell.
