Over the last years more and more International newspapers reported in Europe, the USA and Japan:
  • Tunnel train got stuck under the Channel - thousands of people stranded.
  • Recall of thousands of cars to workshops for control and repair.
  • Power Failures left households without energy for hours.
Very often news like this relate to malfunctions of electric and electronic circuits under adverse conditions or sometimes even in normal operating environment.   Considering that, in the automotive industry the number of complex electronic circuits will increase drastically over the next decade, thus ensuring reliability will become a focus in high quality electronic production. Highly integrated circuitry and miniaturization makes high quality production more and more crucial.

The reliability of such complex circuitry can be ensured using cleaning in all steps of the production process, from stencil cleaning to PCB cleaning prior to coating in order to increase the reliability and life span of the units into which such circuitry will be installed.

The use of environmentally friendly water based chemistries as well as the use of respective machines that operate under the condition of saving energy and resources will gain more and more importance. This paper deals with many aspects of cleaning to ensure reliability of electronic circuitry.
