Conformal Coating Guide to Design, Application & Reliability
12th November 2012
Conformal coating may be a new process to many people and its important to have a good grounding in the fundamentals before embarking on the use of coatings. An incorrect choice at the design stage can add significant cost to the product without the desired benefits. Correct selection of components and conformal coating application techniques can significantly reduce cost by reducing or eliminating masking steps. A key step during design is to assess the effective reliability prior to going into full production.
Application Methods, Materials for Field Reliability
Monday 10th December
There are different application methods and conformal coating materials to coat a board assembly. The product type and its application are the key factors in the decision process but do you have the onsite knowledge? You should also look at the onsite or subcontract services options, depending on the product and the requirements, and it may make sense to contract it out for technical reasons. Assessment of the effectiveness of the selected conformal coating is key to long term reliability but how is this assessed and what are the criteria?
Inspection & Quality of Coated Board Assemblies
Monday 7th January
Conformal Coating Inspection standardsexist from a variety of sources and are based mostly on practical experience. There are many cosmetic defects that are reworked in industry which are unlikely to actually impact on product quality. The majority of coated products are inspected manually but with the growing use of coating application in high volume, automatic optical inspection is gaining in popularity.
Rework, Repair & In Process Application
Monday 4th February
Rework of conformal coated boards is a skilled job to obtain the optimum product reliability. Different materials or thicker coating may require different techniques to maintain the same reliability provided by the original coating system. It’s not always possible to use the same coating system in a rework situation so what are the alternatives?Each webinar is £75 plus VAT or you can book the four sessions for £250 plus VAT. If you or your team are unavailable for one of the dates we can make a video recording of the session available for a limited time after the session date so you never miss a session.
