The National Physical Laboratory and SMART Group will hold a seminar November 9, 2017, that will showcase the latest research and results from NPL projects looking at solder joint and contamination failure, coating thickness measurement, solder joint reliability, and high temperature reliability for alternative solders and substrates materials.
Presentations include performance and lifetime of printed semiconductors, high-temperature electronics and their reliability, coatings for high temperature applications, and factors affecting moisture diffusion in PCBs.
The event will be held at the National Physical Laboratory in Hampton Road, Teddington in London.

For this first issue of Flex007 Magazine, we interviewed John Talbot, president and owner of Tramonto Circuits. Headquartered in metro Minneapolis, Minnesota, Tramonto manufactures flexible and rigid PCBs for a variety of industry segments. Editors Andy Shaughnessy, Patty Goldman and Stephen Las Marias asked John to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the world of flexible circuits, and some of the trends he’s seeing in this market.

While walking around the PCB hall at productronica, I was approached by my good friend Gene Weiner. Gene emphatically directed me to the Elga booth to find out about their new extra-thick dry film that can image extremely fine features with a perfectly perpendicular sidewall. Elga Europe CEO Giorgio Favini filled me in on the details.
