Engineers will get a chance to go back to school this summer to learn about RoHS and its impact on the products they design. IPC – the Association Connecting Electronics Industries – has lined up a series of weekly Webcasts, called RoHS Summer School, to teach the basics of the industry’s move to lead-free parts.
The series began on July 14 and runs every Thursday morning for an hour beginning at 8:00 EDT. The final class will be on August 18. The cost for IPC members is $450 for the entire series ($750 for non-members) or $100 for each class ($150 for non-members). Presenters come from suppliers and industry groups.
Here’s the schedule:
July 14 – Introduction to RoHS
July 21 – How to comply with RoHS
July 28 – Standards activity IPC-1752
August 4 – Implementing materials declaration
August 11 – Test methods for determining RoHS substances in electronics
August 18 – Implementing electronic materials data exchange
