2023 Electronics in Harsh Environments Conference
SMTA Europe hosts the 2023 Electronics in Harsh Environments Conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The conference focuses on building reliable electronics used in power electronics and harsh environments.
Thermal, power and signal integrity requirements can present challenges when on devices that operate within harsh environments. Component integration, paired with a growing complexity of the package architectures, larger form factors and higher interconnection densities increase the risk of in-field failures. Over powering or over heating of a device can have serious consequences including internal package failure, down-stream device errors and second level interconnect solder joint failures. Soldering residues are more problematic, and if not understood, can result in both intermittent and complete device failure.
