SECOND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION - Workshop on Testing of Lead-Free Assemblies

Jan 30, 2009

The University of Maryland Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) is pleased to announce that it will host a workshop on the testing of lead-free soldered assemblies.

The primary goal of the workshop is to provide a forum of technical exchange regarding experiences, lessons learned, data, and other information on testing of lead-free electronic assemblies.

In June 2008, GEIA-STD-0005-3, Performance Testing for Aerospace and High Performance Electronic Interconnects Containing Pb-free Solder and Finishes was released by the ITAA. This document was one of several deliverables provided by the AIA-GEIA-AMC LEAP Working Group. The document is undergoing update to Revision A and, as part of the update process, additional and new information/data in lead-free testing is of interest.

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit presentations addressing (but not necessarily limited to) the following topics:

  • Lessons Learned in Lead-free testing

  • Performance data (mechanical, environmental, etc.) of lead-free solders

  • Critiques/comparisons of various test approaches/procedures

  • New/novel test methods

  • HALT/HASS

  • Environmental Stress Screening

  • Challenges in lead-free testing

  • New materials

All submittals must be considered open to the public. No ITAR or proprietary information please.

Submit a one page abstract by Feb 11 to Dr. Michael Osterman. Authors will be notified by February 16st of acceptance. Final presentations will be due on April 3rd.

You must be a registered user to talk back to us.
