  • correctly implementing the make-buy decision by understanding true manufacturing costs;

  • design for SMT manufacturability from an assembly point of view;

  • IPC-610 comparison clinic;

  • lead free solders: year 2000 and beyond;

  • microvia and high density interconnect: material selection, fabrication processes, and design guidelines;

  • new and emerging technologies for electronic packaging and assembly;

  • process control in electronics assembly;

  • reflow soldering and troubleshooting for SMT, BGA, CSP and flip chip processes;

  • SMT stencil and printing inspection;

  • solder paste reflow for through hole technology;

  • troubleshooting the wave soldering process;

  • troubleshooting the reflow soldering process.
