Harsh Environment Low-Halogen Reliability

HDP has completed several projects evaluating lead free laminates using general commercial specifications and criteria.

 

 

Materials used in Electronic Products are getting more and more scrutiny by government agencies around the globe (RoHS, REACH, CA Prop 65 etc). To date the U.S. Military has not shown a strong interest in halogen free laminate. However some military analysts feel there is a need to understand if halogen free laminates can withstand the more rigorous military testing criteria. This project will evaluate several laminates using military / aerospace reliability testing criteria.

Idea Information

Background: 

  • Materials used in Electronic Products are getting more and more scrutiny by government agencies around the globe (RoHS, REACH, CA Prop 65 etc)
  • Many OEMs are moving selected products to Low-Halogen Materials for a variety of reasons
    • Social Responsibility
    • Potential Legislation
    • NGO pressure
    • Requirements for Government Procurements (EPEAT)
Problem: 

  • To date numerous Halogen-Free / Low-Halogen projects have been run by various consortia including iNEMI and HDP Users Group focus on the following:
    • Consumer Electronics (phones, laptops, desktops etc)
    • Pb-free Assembly Reliability
    • High Reliability Applications (servers etc)
    • High Speed / Low Loss Applications
  • To date no one has addressed the reliability requirements for the military / aerospace industry
