MANASSAS, VAZestron will host a Printed Circuit University chat session on July 9 from 2 to 3 pm Eastern.

This moderated PCB Chat will focus on the importance of cleaning within the SMT process. Topics of interest include why clean PCBs, failure mechanisms and their impact on product reliability, surface analytics, conformal coating integrity, as well as stencil, misprint and maintenance cleaning opportunities.

Attendees can submit questions privately via www.pcbchat.com up to two hours in advance of the chat, or while the chat is live. As questions are answered, they appear online in sequential fashion. Following the chat, the transcript is made available for on-demand viewing and is also searchable.

To participate, register for free as a member of Printed Circuit University at www.printedcircuituniversity.com.

PCB Chat is hosted by UP Media Group.



Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.

The Human Touch

For those who count on the electronics industry for big feats, it’s been a remarkable couple of years.
