Selective Solder Pot Temperatures
Selective Solder Pot Temperatures
What temperature should the solder pot in our selective soldering machine be? Should the temperature be different from our wave system? Phil Zarrow and Jim Hall, The Assembly Brothers, share their own experiences.
Board Talk
Ask the Experts
Long Term Component Storage
We need to store a variety of SMD components for at least 10 years. What do you recommend for humidity and temperature settings?

Electronic Packages and Modules Based on Embedded Die Technologies
Electronic Packages and Modules Based on Embedded Die Technologies
This paper describes the use of embedded die technologies and the development of work in the on power electronic applications.
Production Floor
Neural Networks and Artificial Intelligence
Neural Networks and Artificial Intelligence
Researchers have developed a chip that increases the speed of neural-network computations by three to seven times and reduces power by 93 - 96%.
Technology Briefing
A Control-Chart Based Method for Solder Joint Crack Detection
A Control-Chart Based Method for Solder Joint Crack Detection
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of failure criteria on the reported thermal fatigue life and find out which failure criterion can detect failure sooner.
Analysis Lab
Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors: Mitigating Rising Failure Rates
Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors: Mitigating Rising Failure Rates
The multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) has become a widely used electronics component both for surface mount and embedded PCB applications.
Materials Tech
Evaluating Manual and Automated Heat Sink Assembly
Evaluating Manual and Automated Heat Sink Assembly
This paper illustrates the use of strain gauge testing and Finite Element Analysis as a simulation tool to optimize the heat sink assembly process.
Production Floor
Ask the Experts
Environment Impact on Assembly, Printing and Reflow
Is particle count a good parameter to control? How can having high particle concentrations affect our PCB assembly process or reflow process?
Ask the Experts
SMT Adhesive Inspection
SMT Adhesive Inspection
Industry expert Bob Willis uses the NPL Defect Database to explain SMT adhesive inspection.
Analysis Lab
