The webcast instructors will include Doug Pauls, a leader in the IPC cleaning, coating and materials test fields; and Dave Hillman, a leader in the IPC solderability task groups and a member of the JCAA/JGPP lead-free solder project consortia team which won the 2005 Soldertec Lead Free Solder Award.
The cost is $150 for IPC members and $200 for nonmembers.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
