IPC will present a conference on how to mitigate tin whiskers on December 6 - 7 in Chicago, Ill. at the Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center in Schaumburg, Ill.
Workshops and networking reception: December 6
Full-day technical conference: December 7
This conference will focus on practical methodologies that can be deployed to mitigate the growth of tin whiskers. IPC will present real-world examples to illustrate causes of growth, risk mitigation and materials perspective, methods for detection and failure analysis. The conference will show the full range of tin whiskers theory and practice in a variety of market sectors: military/aerospace, automotive and consumer electronics.
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.
