Chapter Dinner Meeting

3rd Party Solder Paste Analysis Data

SPEAKER
Doug Dixon

Global Marketing Director
Henkel Electronic Materials, Inc.


PRESENTATION ABSTRACT
This presentation will present 3rd party solder paste analysis data comparing 4 leading solder pastes and their performance in various areas. Solder paste was tested using a blind study and was gathered under controlled conditions.

2016 Chapter Tutorial Program

Effective Test and Testability Strategies for Today's Circuits

COURSE OBJECTIVE
The objective of this course is to familiarize attendees with how the testing problem should be tackled for today’s ever more complex electronic circuits. To compound the problem access to the circuit is ever shrinking making mechanical probing more challenging and less effective. Design for Testability (DFT) techniques, including use of the JTAG/IEEE 1149.1 boundary scan helps in keeping up. The course covers issues of how to ensure that circuit boards populated with SMT devices are built correctly, but goes further to confront the question of ensuring that it in fact functions correctly. The course will cover the objectives of various test methods but will also include ways to overcome their limitations. Finally, a profitable test strategy is described and how the traditional test paradigm must change to take advantage of it.

INSTRUCTOR
Louis Ungar
Advanced Test Engineering (A.T.E.) Solutions, Inc.


Mr. Ungar enjoys a well-known reputation in the electronics testing profession. He has built, programmed, and selected Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) for a large number of clients both in the commercial and military community. Having introduced the first university course on ATE and Design for Testability (DFT) at UCLA, he has taught similar courses to companies around the world. He led the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) Testability Committee to publish the SMTA Testability Guidelines from 2002 with the most recent 2014 SMTA Testability Guidelines. He has been involved with the IEEE standards committee for several DFT standards, including the IEEE-1149.1, the 1149.4 and the 1687 and has been honored as a life-time member of the American Society of Test Engineers and is the Tutorial Chair of the IEEE AutoTestCon. He is involved with the IPC-2231 standard for DFX, where X is substituted for Testability, Reliability, Manufacturability, etc. He is also the co-author of a technical paper on False Alarms and No Fault Found that won the Best Management Paper award at AutoTestCon 2015. Mr. Ungar completed courses towards a MA in Management and holds a BS degree in Electronics Engineering and Computer Sciences from UCLA. He continues teaching DFT and BIST courses at conferences, at companies and at public forums around the world.

TOPICS
•Strategize test as you strategize design

•Test and repair vs. throw away: A question of economics

•Inspectability from solder paste through fully loaded boards

•Automatic testing and ATE test programs

•What to expect when you test as you build and how to plan for it with Design for Testability (DFT)

•Capitalizing JTAG/IEEE-1149.1 and other boundary scan standards for all tests

•Tests beyond manufacturing: User built-in test, repair of field returns

•Bottom Line:
- What does this cost?
- How much does it save?
- How can we profit from better tests?


COURSE BENEFITS

•Understand the benefits and limitations of various test equipment types

•Learn how testing is a technical solution to an economic problem

•Understand the modern ATE and how DFT and JTAG are now integral parts of automatic board tests

•Learn how end users – your customers – interface with tests

•Understand that test is an opportunity for profits, not just a cost to be avoided

WHO WILL BENEFIT
Many people are involved in creating a product and they should be concerned that it can be proven to be good before it is sold. Quality, manufacturing, and design engineers not only need to know test to contribute to its success, but also to reap its rewards by the information tests can provide for future improvements. Managers of all disciplines need to know how tests are performed and how to benefit from them rather than simplistically aim only to lower test costs. Finally, test engineers need this course so they can communicate their concerns with others in the organization.
