Summit Interconnect's Gerry Partida to Present at SMTA Capital Expo and Tech Forum


Reading time ( words)

Gerry Partida of Summit Interconnect will present "Density, Advanced Materials and Cost Drivers Associated with Advanced Circuit Design, Fabrication and Assembly" at the upcoming SMTA Capital Expo and Tech Forum, to be held on August 24 at Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Lab, Kossiakoff Center.

PCBs are the platform for all surface mount technology processes and electronics manufacturing. There have been tremendous advancements in high speed and microwave materials, via structures and processing techniques. The material constructions and attributes provide unique opportunities for designers and unique challenges for bare printed circuit board fabricators. Partida will explore the various material options and their trade-offs, provide insight into the manufacture of multiple lamination cycle requirements, review stack-up and routing considerations, managing registration requirements, micro drilling and copper wrap plating processes. This will be an invaluable session to understand materials considerations, cost trade-offs and leading-edge processing technologies for the design, manufacture and assembly of high-technology printed circuit boards.

The SMTA Capital Expo and Tech Forum will be held at Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Lab, Kossiakoff Center, 11100 Johns Hopkins Road, Laurel, Maryland. Registration opens at 8:00 am and includes a complimentary lunch on the show floor. Exhibits are open from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm and the first technical presentation will start at 9:30 am.

Manufacturability: Pad Relief and Mask Relationship to Solder Joint Volume

03/09/2018 | Ken Horky, Peterson Manufacturing
Electronic assembly thermal management has always been an issue but has become more significant as we pack more power and function into a smaller form factor. In recent years, the growing use of LEDs for illumination on a large scale has presented additional thermal demands.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

Focus on the New

01/05/2018 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
It seems like it wasn't too long ago when I was writing about the optimism of the electronics manufacturing and assembly industry going into 2017. Now, here we are again at the beginning of the new year, looking at new trends, disruptive technologies, and emerging markets for 2018. I am also proud to announce our new branding as well as our fresh, new look.
