Conformal Coating Challenges:Detection, Rework and Failure Analysis, Part II
Understanding coating chemistry dictates the removal strategy. Here, the authors investigate the challenges of conformal coating removal and a design of experiments to enable rework and failure analysis. Special cases where conventional detection of the conformal coating fails are also addressed.

Field Performance of pH Neutral Cleaning Agents, Part II
The second of a two-part series presenting three case studies on material compatibility and field cleaning performance of alternatives to alkaline cleaning agents. Each user had a different paste/flux vehicle and material compatibility constraints.Yet, based on the results, pH neutral cleaning agents can meet stringent cleaning requirements.
