This webinar will cover a short introduction to the kinds of machine data available in an EMS factory as well as how to setup an analytics environment using freely available, open source tools. Key topics include:
- What kinds of data are present in factory equipment?
- How much data is there in an EMS factory and is it feasible to collect and store it all?
- What are examples of analytics you can do with PNP, AOI and tester data?
- What are important considerations in setting up a data collection system for analyzing machine data?

Review historical timeline of the research in this area. Join Dr. Syed Sajid Ahmad, Ph.D summarize and present pertinent results including the means & actions proposed and tried to alleviate the adverse effects of the Kirkendall voiding caused by the phenomenon. What promotes purple plague. How to control its formation and growth. Observation and measurement methods. Interface analysis techniques. Methods of failure analysis.

This webinar will preview the IPC APEX EXPO 2023 professional development course, “Troubleshooting SMT Yield Problems and Failure Analysis." Join Ray Prasad for this webinar and get an exclusive "sneak peak" on: 

Advancing your understanding of root causes of SMT and through hole defects
Implementing corrective actions in design, assembly and material purchases
Taking necessary actions to improve yield and reduce product cost.
You are also encouraged to bring your pesky defects for discussion and root cause analysis. 

Join Madison Maxey, founder and technical lead of Loomia, as she shares highlights of her IPC APEX EXPO 2023 professional development course. The course provides a primer to electrical and mechanical engineers -as well as product designers - on how to engage with electronic textiles for new product development. Attendees should walk away with a clear picture of when electronic textiles may be relevant to their engineering, which type of technology is ideal for their application, and how to thoroughly evaluate a technology when selected. 

This webinar will preview the IPC APEX EXPO 2023 professional development course, “Preventing Product Failure and Manufacturing Defects.” Join Dr. Jennie S. Hwang to explore how to prevent prevailing production defects and product reliability issues that affect the first-pass yield/cost/performance by understanding potential causes and plausible solutions.
