2017 Corporate Member Appreciation Breakfast


2D, 2.5D, and 3D X-Ray Inspection -
What's a "D"?

SPEAKER
Dr. Bill Cardoso

CEO
Creative Electron, Inc.


PRESENTATION ABSTRACT
The use of x-ray inspection in the electronics industry has gained wide adoption in the past 20 years, driven mainly by the development and use of bottom terminated components (BTC). The use of ball grid arrays (BGA), for example, allowed the development of standards and guidelines that dictate the maximum void size in each ball. In consequence, x-ray machine manufacturers developed solutions that address these requirements to became an integral part of the quality assurance function of modern electronic manufacturers.

However, as new x-ray technologies are introduced - from new algorithms to new hardware - users are faced with a growing range of options to choose from. Users need a solid technical background to understand these options to make an educated decision when acquiring x-ray inspection capabilities. Unfortunately, x-ray companies are not always clear about the pros and cons of each option. As a result, users end up buying too much or too little capabilities. In either situation, the user is left without the right x-ray inspection solution.

The goal of this presentation is to give the audience the tools needed to avoid making mistakes when acquiring x-ray inspection capabilities. We will set the record straight and clearly define critical concepts in x-ray inspection. The different x-ray modalities, 2D, 2.5D, and 3D x-ray inspection will be explained in details at the user level - no math involved. Most importantly, this presentation will cover when each modality must be utilized for a successful quality assurance program. A rich set of images and videos will be used to illustrate the advantages and disadvantages of each x-ray inspection modality.



SPEAKER PROFILE
Bill started his first company in Brazil at age 17 and sold it a few years later when invited by the US Department of Energy to work at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) to do nuclear and high energy physics research. As the Department Head for Systems Engineering and after a 10-year long career at Fermilab, Bill moved from Chicago to sunny California to start Creative Electron. True to the American Dream, Creative Electron quickly grew from Bill's garage to the largest US manufacturer of x-ray machines for the electronics industry (no longer in his garage). At Creative Electron Bill leads the team of engineers who designs and manufactures x-ray systems that are shipped worldwide. Starting with an associate degree at age 13, Bill has a BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering and an MBA from The University of Chicago. An industry thought leader, Bill has been recognized as IIT's 2011 Outstanding Young Alumnus Awardee for his contributions to science and technology. He is also a Senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA), American Physics Society (APS), and the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE). Bill is the president of the SMTA San Diego chapter and member of the technical committee for SMTA International, SMTA Counterfeit Conference, and SMTA LED Conference, Components for Military and Space Electronics Conference, SPIE Photonics, and the IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium. He is the author of over 120 technical publications, a contributor to 2 books, owner of a few patents, and a frequent speaker at technical conferences.

SEPTEMBER 2017 EVENT
LA/OC SMTA is Proud to Present an Educational and Networking Event...

Chapter Dinner Meeting

Avoiding Assembly Pitfalls at the Bare Board Design Stage
A discussion of factors that drive PCB and assembly costs which should be considered early in the design phase to save your company $$$.


SPEAKER
Julie Ellis

Field Applications Engineer
TTM Technologies, Inc.


PRESENTATION ABSTRACT
A designer is faced with many challenges when planning their layout to achieve a balance of performance, quality and reliability versus cost. In this presentation, Julie will discuss common PCB-related assembly factors that contribute to cost and explore the trade-off considerations for design optimization. She will explore panel utilization, IPC Classes 2 and 3, design geometries and spacing, via protection, solder mask-defined pads and dams, and surface finishes. By thinking “Outside the Board,” assemblers can avoid pitfalls of unintended design consequences.

SPEAKER PROFILE
Julie Ellis is a Field Applications Engineer, or as her LinkedIn profile simply states, “PCB Problem Solver.” Julie’s qualifications include a BSEE and an IPC Master Trainer certificate, not to mention being a survivor of the Viasystems/TTM merger and the other ups and downs our industry has experienced since she began her career as a student-engineer at Hughes Aircraft in 1982. Julie’s work as a student and then as an engineer at Hughes gave her great hands-on experience in RF/analog electronics and coaxial cable design, assembly, and test. After Hughes, she pursued technical sales as a manufacturer’s rep for semiconductors and circuit boards and represented Nan Ya PCB Corporation for ten years before rounding out her career in contract electronics manufacturing as a sales engineer and then global PCB commodity manager. She managed a fabricator’s ISO 9001 quality system and was a technical consultant and process and quality auditor for PCB, CM, and automotive customers before joining TTM. Julie is a Certified IPC Trainer for acceptability of both circuit boards (IPC-A-600) and electronic assemblies (IPC-A-610). She really enjoys teaching students to understand the requirements and apply the standards to accept product with full confidence.
