Robert Boguski to Chair Advanced Assembly Technology Session at SMTAI 2017


Reading time ( words)

Robert Boguski, president of Datest, a provider of advanced, efficient and mission-critical in-circuit testing, test engineering and X-ray inspection solutions, will Chair Session TI Keynote & TI3 at SMTA International. The session, entitled, “The Roadmap and the Reaction: Challenges and Responses in Advanced Assembly Technology,” is scheduled to take place September 18, 2017, from 12:30–3pm. Speakers for the session include keynote speaker Bill Bader from iNEMI; John Timmerman, Ph.D., from Henkel; and Luis Carlos Montemayor, from Dow Corning Corp.

It is no secret that technology drives assembly innovation. Relentless demands for product miniaturization; durability; performance; reduced energy consumption and carbon footprints; together with demands for packaging design elegance, such as visual attractiveness and cost competitiveness, supply the impetus for change. Assembly processes struggle to keep pace with this never-ending evolution.

This session will address the general as well as the particular—a call and two responses—illustrating the impending changes that we as an industry confront. The keynote presentation will highlight technical challenges anticipated over the next decade, while the other two speakers will address specific industry responses to those challenges in the area of adhesive technology.

Boguski is a 1981 graduate of the University of San Francisco, with a BA in economics. He has worked in the electronics packaging and interconnect manufacturing business, primarily in management positions, since 1975. Boguski has 22 years in the bare board business, 12 years in the EMS business, and 12 years in the testing and test engineering business. He is the owner and president of Datest, a test engineering and failure analysis company in Fremont, California. Both Boguski and Datest are members of EIPC, SMTA, IPC and IEEE. Since 2013 Boguski has coauthored the Test and Measurement column for Circuits Assembly magazine. He is currently the president of the SMTA Silicon Valley Chapter.

Reliability of ENEPIG by Sequential Thermal Cycling and Aging

11/06/2017 | Reza Ghaffarian, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
Electroless nickel/electroless palladium/immersion gold (ENEPIG) surface finish for PCBs has now become a key surface finish that is used for both tin-lead and lead-free solder assemblies. This article presents the reliability of LGA component packages with 1156 pads assembled with tin-lead solder onto PCBs with an ENEPIG finish and then subjected to thermal cycling and then isothermal aging.
