Day 3 Keynote to Address Paths to Medical Device Cleanliness

Oct 06, 2016

Industry-leading associations IPC and SMTA jointly announce the High-Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference, scheduled to take place October 25-27, 2016 at Hyatt Rosemont, Rosemont, IL. The conference is focused on best practices for designing, cleaning and coating highly dense electronic assemblies to assure reliability in today’s mobile society.

Doc Brown of DfR Solutions will give the Thursday Keynote address on “Paths to Medical Device Cleanliness” with a focus on prevention and intervention.

There are many factors for medical device applications that are sufficiently different to warrant attention.  Almost every aspect of product lifecycle takes longer: research, product definition, design, approval, qualification, approval, production, and support.  Medical devices are exposed to harsher environments than many assume. The consequences of failure, both in terms of human health and safety, as well as regulatory actions, public perception, and of course litigation, can be extreme.

These and other factors such as the tendency of biological signals to be low voltage with high background noise, the use of bleach in cleaning, configuration management of process change notices, hidden design and process margins, all require attention be paid to cleanliness and coating issues.

Come learn about these valuable lessons and more at the IPC/SMTA Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference.
