“PCB Troubleshooting,” a course by IPC – Association for Connecting Electronics Institute, will be held November 2 in conjunction with PCB Carolina in Raleigh, N.C.

Instructor Mike Carano of RBP Chemical Technology will discuss how to trace problems through the manufacturing process and how to prevent them. Class participants will explore electrodeposition defects such as mouse bites, pitting and domed or crown plating; learn about solderability and other assembly-related issues; and develop strategies to address solder mask peeling, poor circuit trace coverage, skips, bubbles and poor adhesion in nickel gold plating.

The full-day course includes a copy of the instructor’s PowerPoint presentation and access to all activities at PCB Carolina. Learn more.
