Visit RBP at the IPC APEX EXPO 2018 in February, Booth #835. Also, be sure not to miss two professional development courses presented by RBP’s Mike Carano:

Course Title: PD16: Advanced Printed Circuit Board Trouble Shooting. Getting to the root cause of defects – Part 1
Presentation Date: Monday, February 26
Presentation Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Course Description: This course will address advanced problem solving of printed wiring board defects. Some defects, such as interconnect separation, delamination, wedge voids, plating folds, microvoids, surface pitting, and hole wall pull-away, carry significant costs. Many are difficult to solve because the root cause may not be readily apparent and multiple factors may contribute. This course will explore the most intricate of these factors and how the interrelationship of both up and downstream processes contribute to scrap product. What effect does drilling have on hole wall quality and the subsequent metalization process? Participants will learn how to recognize problems like this and take corrective action. Who Will Benefit: Participants should have some knowledge of the PCB fabrication process. This course will directly benefit those involved in printed circuit board fabrication and assembly. In addition, end users of printed circuit boards, as well as designers will gain significant knowledge about PCB related defects.

Course Title: PD22: Advanced Printed Circuit Board Trouble Shooting. Getting to the root cause of defects – Part 2
Presentation Date: Monday, February 26
Presentation Time: 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Course Description: This course is Part 2 of a two part course, and will address advanced problem solving of printed wiring board defects. Some defects, such as interconnect separation, delamination, wedge voids, plating folds, microvoids, surface pitting, and hole wall pull-away, carry significant costs. Many are difficult to solve because the root cause may not be readily apparent and multiple factors may contribute.
