IPC Training on PCB Troubleshooting and Defect Analysis

Reading time ( words)

IPC will be holding a PCB troubleshooting and defect analysis training course from Sep 13–Oct 6, 2022, every Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6:30pm–8:30pm. 

Taught by an IPC-certified industry expert with more than 40 years of experience in the field, this four-week online program is designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to identify PCB defects and determine corrective action.

The IPC Advanced Troubleshooting and Defect Analysis course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify printed circuit board defects and determine corrective action.

Upon completion, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify and correct control processes that negatively affect circuit board quality
  • Establish the root cause of potential defects to minimize and prevent loss of quality
  • Recognize the interrelationships of PCB materials, processes, and equipment and how these relationships affect PCB and PCA quality
  • Identify the root cause and corrective action for PCB defects such as interconnect separation, delamination, wedge voids, plating folds, microvoids, surface pitting, and hole wall pull-away
  • Identify the root cause and corrective action for electrodeposition defects, such as mouse bites, pitting, and domed or crown plating..
  • Identify the root cause and corrective action for solderability and assembly related issues such as outgassing, black pad, creep corrosion and blow holes

The training program utilizes interactive webinars, on-demand recordings, and job-specific exercises to facilitate mastery of the key concepts required for successful printed circuit board trouble shooting and defect analysis.

Regardless of the potential distraction of the international football match between England and Wales in the World Cup competition, an enthusiastic crowd of PCB fans gathered in Meriden UK for the Institute of Circuit Technology Christmas Seminar, an eagerly-awaited networking opportunity that included a face-to-face industry welcome event and an outstanding technical programme. Guest speakers highlighted new technology in selective solder nozzles, flexible circuits, industry cooperation, and a greener future by recycling PCBs.

Millennium Circuits on The Move

10/31/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I recently met with Daniel Thau, CEO of Millennium Circuits Limited, at PCB West. This Pennsylvania-based PCB distributor has been on an expansion path lately, so I asked Daniel to introduce us to MCL and explain where the company is headed. As Daniel says, it’s all about impacting the world in a positive way.

Pricing Strategies With Michael Carano

09/13/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We recently spoke with longtime I-Connect007 columnist Michael Carano, vice president of quality at Averatek, about pricing strategies for PCB fabricators. We’re seeing some movement in this segment as fabricators, already dealing with some of the tightest profit margins around, find themselves having to either raise their prices or trying to massage more revenue out of their already streamlined processes. We asked Michael for some pricing strategies for fabricators, and he shared a range of options for today’s manufacturers who aren’t afraid to rethink their processes and try new ideas. And, as he says, people will still pay good money for a quality, reliable PCB.
