Technical Presentations


The Discrepancy Between Ionic Contamination and SIR Testing in Predicting Electrical Reliability
Mitch Holtzer, Alpha Assembly Solutions

Controlled humidity and temperature controlled surface insulation resistance (SIR) measurements of flux covered test vehicles, subject to a direct current (D.C.) bias voltage are recognized by a number of global standards organizations as the preferred method to determine if no clean solder paste and wave soldering flux residues are suitable for reliable electronic assemblies. The Association Connecting Electronics Industries (IPC), Japanese Industry Standard (JIS), Deutsches Institut fur Normung (DIN) and International Electrical Commission (IEC) all have industry reviewed standards using similar variations of this measurement. 


MEMS & Microelectronics Degree, and Talent Development Strategies

Courtney Tenhover and Johnny Vanderford, Lorain County Community College

This presentation will review the history of the MEMS and Microelectronics degree at Lorain County Community College and discuss the current status of the MEMS degree. We will also present a new talent innovation program, TRAIN OH, which is an earn and learn model where students will participate in a work based learning position with a local employer and attend school at the same time to earn an Associate Degree. Finally, we will discuss an upcoming course that will be offered at Lorain County Community College, Technical Publication and Presentation.
