The National Physical Laboratory and SMART Group will hold a seminar November 9, 2017, that will showcase the latest research and results from NPL projects looking at solder joint and contamination failure, coating thickness measurement, solder joint reliability, and high temperature reliability for alternative solders and substrates materials.
Presentations include performance and lifetime of printed semiconductors, high-temperature electronics and their reliability, coatings for high temperature applications, and factors affecting moisture diffusion in PCBs.
The event will be held at the National Physical Laboratory in Hampton Road, Teddington in London.

An electronic heater is created by driving electric current through a resistive element. As the current is drawn through the element, some of the energy is expelled as heat. That heat can then be transferred to other surfaces with positive effects.

The days, weeks, and (sometimes) years that go into a product’s development usually are incomprehensible to the lay person. Like laws and sausages, no one wants to really understand what has gone on behind the scenes to make your “thing” a reality. They just care that your widget makes their life easier and/or more enjoyable!
