HDP User Group is pleased to announce a new project idea call. During the Pb-Free PWB Materials Reliability Phase 6 data gathering, several materials showed unexpected behavior of Tg by TMA.

The observed anomalies highlighted the lack of understanding or limitations for use of the existing IPC test procedure (IPC TM 2.4.24.5). This situation limits the ability to judge or measure the thermo-mechanical properties of some materials for use in modelling and performance evaluation.

This first project call will cover some of the issues involved and assess the interest of our members to move forward with a project to address this issue.

HDP members and non-members are welcome to attend this kickoff meeting. Please register for the call at https://www.hdpusergroup.org/project/thermal-analysis-methodolgy-assessment/, then download the invitation and kickoff slides.
