CELCORR group work on all aspects of corrosion reliability with a focus on ways and means to improve corrosion reliability of Electronic devices. We help electronic industries on various issues for develop product with a "Design for Reliability (DFR)" concept.

Whole range of research activities and knowledge base are open to the industries through participation in our "CreCon consortium" with a modest membership fee. A member receives significant return on their investment every year many times higher than the cost of membership including continuous support on product issues, knowledge from our research and development activities, and complete access to our DATABASE website.

 

PCBA MATERIAL AND DESIGN

  • All types of electronic corrosion issues, and climatic interaction with electronic devices

  • Material related issues for PCBA and better material usage for corrosion reliability

  • Effects of PCBA design on climatic reliability, and design for reliability concepts

 

CONTAMINATION

  • Contamination issues, analysis, SIR, and leakage current problems
  • Process related residues: flux, fire retardant etc.
  • Interaction between process related contamination and humidity
  • Localized testing of contamination and leakage current
  • Limits for various types of contamination and climatic reliability

 

FAILURE ANALYSIS

  • Failure analysis of corrosion and climatically driven failures of electronic devices
  • Colorimetric method for tin corrosion failure idetification on the PCBA

 

LOCALIZED CORROSION TEST METHODS

  • Localized corrosion test methods for e.g. test integrity of connectors and contacts
  • Special test methods for products and component qualification and testing

 


 

ELECTRONIC ENCLOSURES, HUMIDITY

  • Enclosure design and humidity control measures at device level

 

 

OTHER...

Electronic corrosion testing

Climatic conditions

Humidity and temperature variation in the use environment influences corrosion thus overall reliability of electronic device.

Ionic contamination

Flux residues and contamination determines threshold climatic conditions for leakage and corrosion.

Protection strategy

Understanding of failure mechanism and selection of a method for corrosion protection.

Corrosive gasses

Corrosive gasses such as H2S, SOx,COS, NOx in the use environment accelerates corrosion and failure of electronics.
