Kelly Dack: What are your thoughts on IPC APEX EXPO 2020?

Gerry Padnos: This is my 28th year coming to the show if you count NEPCON West, so I’ve been here quite a few times, but the traffic is down a little bit from previous years. Some people have a theory that the coronavirus had something to do with it because visitors from Asia may not have been able to come. But overall, it has been a successful show for us. We have mainly seen serious shoppers, not just window shoppers. We have done a lot of good work here, and we have a lot of interest in our products.

Chapter 1 Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

12/31/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
The original principle underlying the IPC’s ionic cleanliness requirement was that the mobility of surface ions, detectable from SIR measurements, would correlate to a maximum value of detectable ionic elements permissible on the circuit surface. The industry required a test that was both fast and accurate for process control. Thus, a simplified ion chromatograph that was able to detect ionic elements without differentiation was created.
