International experts headline surface mount conference at Electronex

Susy Webb and Jasbir Bath, both from the US, will bring a wealth of electronics design and manufacturing knowledge to this year’s Electronics Design and Manufacture Conference at Electronex, on at Rosehill Gardens, Sydney, from 5–6 September.

Susy Webb is a senior PCB designer with 37 years of experience. Webb is a regular speaker at the PCB, IPC and international design conferences, and also consults for individual companies. Her presentations discuss practical implementation of complex engineering concepts into board layout, and methods to improve the overall design and flow of printed circuit boards. She is CID certified and a former writer/columnist for Printed Circuit Design & Fab magazine. Webb is also an active member of the IPC Designer’s Council Executive Board and Education Committee, and is a member and past president of the Houston Chapter of the IPC Designer’s Council. Webb’s workshops will include: Designing Beyond Simulation; Building a Bridge from Design to Manufacturing; The Complexities of Designing with Fine Pitch BGAs; and Part Placement Choices and Consequences.

Jasbir Bath has over 20 years of experience in research, design, development and implementation in the areas of soldering, surface mount and packaging technologies. He has extensive knowledge of soldering technologies and in 2012 was appointed as principal engineer within IPC’s assembly technology area. Bath has contributed to four books on lead-free manufacturing and has worked closely with IPC’s Solder Products Value Council (SPVC) to develop process and reliability data, and he served on an IPC Blue Ribbon Committee to develop the IPC Lead-free Process Certification Site Audit Program. Bath’s workshops will cover Design for Manufacturability and Reliability; Printing and Its Effect on Manufacturing Yield; and Reflow Wave and Rework Soldering Process Optimisation in Electronics Manufacturing.

In addition, the popular IPC training and certification program ‘IPC-A-610 Acceptability of Electronics Assembly’ course will be conducted by one of the SMCBA’s Master IPC Trainers. The IPC-A-610 is the most widely used document in the electronics industry worldwide and the SMCBA has been conducting these programs for over 20 years.
