Boston SMTA/IMAPS/IEEE Boston/New Hampshire/Providence Reliability Chapter Event

Greetings fellow Reliability enthusiasts!

The IEEE Reliability Society’s Joint Boston/New Hampshire/Providence Chapter is pleased to be co-hosting with Boston SMTA and iMAPS an evening meeting at Advanced MicroAnalytical in Salem, NH.  This will include dinner, a discussion of analytical tools and techniques, and a facilities tour.

To register, please use this Link to SMTA Registration.

Hope to see you there!

Best regards, James P. (Jay) Yakura, Chair, Joint Boston/New Hampshire/Providence Chapter, IEEE Reliability Society


This meeting will cover laboratory techniques and test methods for a variety of samples from components to PCBA’s and whole commercial devices. A number of familiar analytical techniques will be discussed and demonstrated related to reliability and process inspection, including visual inspection and standard techniques like Ball Shear, X-ray Imaging, CSAM and other standard composite methods. Additionally, more specialized approaches to Failure Analysis, research, and process development will be demonstrated including use of multiple types of electron microscopes, spectroscopy, and Focused Ion Beam analysis for 3D examination of devices on a nano-scale.

Advanced MicroAnalytical is part of the EMSL Analytical network. Coming up on 10 years this May, Advanced MicroAnalytical has been delivering in-depth scientific support for a wide range of industries and sample types. Our staff and analytical capabilities are primed to provide leading edge support for industries including, including manufacturing, microelectronics, nano-fabrication, aerospace and defense, medical devices and more. This meeting will demonstrate the type of work flow associated with finding and understanding problems that challenge attending members – from initial product development choices, through reliability, product support, and customer facing FA efforts. Advanced MicroAnalytical is located in the hub of technology on the East Coast just north of Boston, MA, in Salem NH.

Cost:  Members: $25, Non-members: $30, Students/Retired: $10
