Engineered Reliability: Safeguarding Electrical Components and Devices with Nanocoating Technology, focuses on real-world examples of where significant product challenges were presented (such as humidity, temperature, or corrosion) and the investment of time and resources focused on device dependability and functional testing. Data analysis from industry standard testing methodologies as well as application specific approaches will be presented.
The speaker, Richard Weiland, is director of Nanocoating Applications with HZO where he serves in a variety of roles, including support of (Tier 1) accounts to enhance and develop customer relationships and coordinate new program development. In addition, he works diligently with R&D to execute strategy for new HZO product technologies to service the broader conformal coating marketplace. He has a bachelor’s in chemical engineering from Bucknell University and held process development, project engineering, and business development manager roles with CORMETECH, a company that specializes in environmental pollution control and services prior to joining HZO. He also obtained an MBA from North Carolina State University in 2015.
This course is intended to provide the participant an understanding of how design issues interact with the SMT assembly processes. How design affects manufacturing capability and vice versa is covered in depth. It looks at the design impact on SMT assembly, component placement, soldering, paste and final finish considerations, and manufacturing implications of emerging technologies including BTCs, ultra-miniature passives, and ultra-fine pitch IC packages.
The new IPC Digital Twin standard (IPC-2551) defines an interoperable framework in which thousands of applications from multiple sources work seamlessly together, providing the opportunity for virtual prototyping of all aspects of design, manufacturing and beyond. Use of IPC-2551 prevents companies in all areas of the industry from making the mistake of tying themselves to any monopolistic data exchange technology. The impact of the IPC Digital Twin on the design through manufacturing flow will be significant, and will be the area that develops sooner than any other, built upon and driven by existing IPC standards, such as IPC-2581 (DPMX), IPC-2591 (CfX) and IPC-1782 internal and external (secure supply-chain) traceability. This presentation explains the IPC Digital Twin standard, using some specific use-case examples that illustrate the value and opportunity that the standard provides to both the design and manufacturing communities, exchanging digital models bidirectionally between design and manufacturing. This presentation will be of critical interest to all of those involved in design and manufacturing, including business management, engineers and technology providers.
