Contamination and Cleanliness – Developing Practical Responses to a Challenging Problem
Contamination and Cleanliness Issues are one of the primary drivers for field issues in electronics today. Often, intermittent failures result in No-Fault-found, (NFF) returns. Failures have been observed on batteries, LCDs, PCBAs, wiring, switches etc. and is projected to get worse as components continue to get smaller and lower profile. (e.g QFNs). The sma...
