Manassas, VA – September 17, 2019 ZESTRON, the global leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services, and training solutions in the electronics manufacturing and semiconductor industries, is pleased to announce that Michael Kövi, Application Engineer, ZESTRON Europe, will be presenting, “Handling Technical Cleanliness in Electronic Production” at SMTA International. Mr. Kövi’s presentation will be on Thursday, September 26th, during session MFX7 – Cleaning: Challenges.
Technical Cleanliness primarily measures the presence or absence of particles on electronic components and parts within industrial manufacturing processes. The presence of electrically conductive particles on components can impact the production process or the proper operation of the component or PCB. Conductive particles may cause PCB failure by connecting contacts on a circuit board and causing a short circuit event. Even barring a direct connection between contacts, a conductive particle between two contacts that do not touch can cause an electrical breakdown or tracking as a result of reducing the air gap and creepage distance.
Filter membranes are used to extract particles that are inspected to quantify contaminants that may affect the performance, lifetime, and reliability of final products.
This paper provides overviews of the latest developments in standardization, implications for adopting a technical cleanliness approach, monitoring and validation procedures, and a brief introduction to risk assessment of particle contamination.
