September 2015 • SMT Magazine 117 5 emI-caused eOs sources in Automated equipment electrical overstress causes damage to sensitive components, including latent damage. a signifi- cant source of eoS is high-frequency noise in au- tomated manufacturing equipment. This article analyses sources of such noise, how it affects com- ponents and how to mitigate this problem. 6 Localized Contamination Can Cause big problems in today's electronics manufacturing environment, assemblers continue to overlook areas of localized contamination that are capable of causing product failures. This article talks about a case study involv- ing a visible white residue and dendritic growth in a connector area, and the analysis done to deter- mine its cause and implications. 7 Acceptance testing Of Low-Ag reflow solder Alloys The electronics industry has seen an expansion of available low-silver pb-free alloys for wave solder- ing, miniwave rework, bga and cSp solder balls, and, more recently, solder pastes for mass reflow. This article discusses test protocols that can be used for assessing new Sn-ag-cu, Sn-ag, and Sn- cu alloys for general use in electronics. 8 Flextronics is Now Flex eMS firm flextronics has officially changed its name to flex, with a promise to help the world live smarter. 9 2Q 2015 saw six Completed ems m&As There were six completed mergers and acqui- sitions (M&as) in the eMS industry during the second quarter of the year, up from four in the previous quarter but down from nine transactions reported in the same period last year.
