IPC Partners With ANSYS for the High Reliability Forum

Reading time ( words)

PCBs form the backbone of every electronic product. How do we ensure their electrical, thermal and mechanical reliability? Find out at the IPC High Reliability Forum in Cooperation With ANSYS!

May 12–14 | Baltimore, MD

The High Reliability Forum provides a great opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in electronics, participate in industry discussions, and network with this respected community of professionals focused on electronics with high reliability requirements. This event includes keynote, technical presentations, professional development courses, tabletop exhibits and panel discussions.

The full agenda is available now.

Here are just a few of the topics we’ll cover:

  • Implementing End-to-End Electronics Reliability Workflow
  • Role and Selection Criteria of Surface Finish for Next Generation PCB Technologies
  • HDI
  • Materials for 5G
  • Surface Reliability

We’re also bringing back the popular Microvia Summit with updates from speakers on issues such as:

  • A Framework for Failure Analysis
  • Performance Based Microvia Reliability Testing — What You Need to Know
  • Reliability of Microvia
  • How to Detect Weak Microvias and Avoid Costly Assembly Defects and Customer Field Failures

If you manufacture, design or test Class 3 electronics for applications with unique safety, reliability and lifetime requirements, you should not miss the High Reliability Forum.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

I know I’m not alone in this behavior: Car advertisements during television commercial breaks are as good as invisible to me, until I’m thinking about getting a new car. Only then do I notice them. Rather, I see each one with all my attention and being. If that extends into our industry, then everybody must be itching to pick up some new equipment. This week’s must-reads includes a smattering of new product announcements, along with the news of the IPC European subsidiary.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.

Improved Thermal Interface Materials For Cooling High-Power Electronics

03/31/2022 | Jeff Brandman, Aismalibar North America
Heat has been a significant concern in electronics since the beginning of the electronics age when hot glowing vacuum tubes were first used to receive and transmit data bits. The transistor and integrated circuit effectively solved that basic problem, but increases in integration resulted in increased concentration of heat, exacerbated by relentless increases in operating frequency. While improvements in electronics technology have been able to mitigate many thermal issues at chip level thanks to improved semiconductor designs devised to operate at lower voltages (thus requiring less energy) the thermal management challenge continues to vex electronic product developers.
