IPC Presents Technical Education Course: PCB Troubleshooting Course held in conjunction with PCB Carolina

Sep 14, 2016

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® will present “PCB Troubleshooting” on November 2, 2016 in Raleigh, N.C. in conjunction with regional trade show, PCB Carolina.

As root causes for PCB defects are not always readily apparent, course instructor Mike Carano, RBP Chemical Technology, Inc., will teach participants to trace problems through the manufacturing process — and prevent them. In addition, participants will:

• explore a range of electrodeposition defects: mouse bites, pitting, and domed or crown plating.

• learn about solderability and other assembly-related issues: outgassing, black pad, creep corrosion and blow holes.

• develop strategies to address solder mask peeling, poor circuit trace coverage, skips, bubbles, and poor adhesion in nickel gold plating.

Registration for this full-day course includes a copy of the instructor’s PowerPoint presentation and access to all activities at PCB Carolina. The PCB troubleshooting course will be held in conjunction with the show which is presented by the local chapter of the IPC Designers Council. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the additional technical education offered.

The PCB Carolina trade show offers attendees the opportunity to network with industry experts in fabrication and assembly. The troubleshooting course is the perfect complement to the exhibition. Anyone involved in PCB design, fabrication, and assembly could benefit from this educational experience. I am looking forward to participating this year, and will be at the IPC booth on the show floor,” said Randy Cherry, CID, director of IPC Validation Services.

Complete information and registration for the IPC technical education course, “PCB Troubleshooting” can be found at www.ipc.org/Tech-Edu.
