PLASMA-IRVINE-11-11: Use of Plasma Deposition to Provide a Novel Surface Finish and Protective Coating for PCBs
"Use of Plasma Deposition to Provide a Novel Surface Finish and Protective Coating for PCBs" was presented at the IPC Conference on Reliability: Assembly Process for a Reliable Product in November 2011. The paper was written by David Rund, director of business development for materials of the Christopher Group, and was presented by Chrys Shea. The author describes a new method of applying a polymer material to the surface of a PCB to improve corrosion resistance while acting to improve reliability and solderability while being environmentally friendly. The solder joints were then tested for shear strength, contact resistance, corrosion resistance and RF signal loss. This presentation includes the synchronized slides and audio. 20 minutes. Released 2011.
