Loading Events

Dear Madam, Sir,

We are pleased to invite you to attend 2018 IPC Day on “Understanding Failures for Improved Reliability”, which will be held in Den Bosch, The Netherlands on Thursday 6 December 2018.

Thematic

Presented by Mr. Bhanu Sood, Commodity Risk Assessment Engineer at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, this IPC Day will present and discuss a wide range of failure mechanisms that impact the functionality of PCBs under varied stress conditions. Bhanu will tell you how these mechanisms can be related to how PCB materials are selected, how PCBs are designed, manufactured, tested and used in the field conditions.
This workshop provides the guideline for selection of methodologies for identifying potential failure mechanisms based on the failure history and how a systematic root cause failure analysis of the PCB can result in prevention of future issues. It is a unique opportunity for PCB Engineers, Quality Engineers, Design Engineers, Quality Assurance functions and, personnel involved with PCB procurement or quality assurance activities within the company to expanding your knowledge and sharing best practices and success stories in the ever-evolving electronics industry.

Keynote speaker

Bhanu Sood is a Commodity Risk Assessment Engineer at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
