Will conductive adhesives replace solders? Probably not, but they do have their place in many modern electronics applications. Each chapter of this handbook provides a good mixture of illustrations and real examples showing joint structures. The text covers the materials and compares many different adhesive types and conductive filler types. Comparisons are given on the curing mechanisms and the issues related to cure and under-cure.

The text provides insight into the advantages and disadvantages of adhesive use, and also explains why and how this technology is misunderstood. Design-specific issues are discussed and failure modes are explained in various sections of the text.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
