HDP User Group Completes Press-Fit Rework Project

More and more products use electronic devices to communicate. In 2020 it is expected that there will be more than 50 billion connected devices in the world. This means that many electronic products, especially mobile base stations and core network nodes, need to handle enormous amount of data per second. One important link in this communication chain are high speed press fit connectors that are often used to connect mother boards and back planes in core network nodes.

Sponsorship of a free Webinar that will provide the latest findings on Tin Whiskers in Electronics. The NASA tin (Sn) whisker web site describes Sn whiskers as electrically conductive, crystalline structures of tin that sometimes grow from surfaces where tin (especially electroplated tin) is used as a final finish. Numerous electronic system failures have been attributed to short circuits caused by tin whiskers that bridge closely-spaced circuit elements maintained at different electrical potentials.

HDP User Group Announces New Project

“Plated through hole (PTH) lifetime predictor for Temperature Cycling (TC)”. The PTH is the basic building block of circuit interconnect, used in printed circuit boards (PCB) in products we all use every day. The lifetime of the printed circuit board and your product is very dependent on how long the PTH will last. The PTH reliability is dependent on several variables such as the thickness of the board, the quality and plating in the hole, the thickness of the plating as well as connection interface between the in inner layer and the PTH.
