  • What is an ESD Protected Area (EPA)?

    Manufacturing facilities with sensitive electronic devices and components are encouraged to have ESD protection areas (EPA) to effectively control ESD and prevent ESD damage. Read on to learn more about the fundamentals of EPA!
  • Sources of ESD in Manufacturing Facilities

    ESD, the hidden enemy in electronics manufacturing, is often the key cause of device failure. Preventing ESD begins with understanding what causes it occurs in the first place. Read on to find out the various sources of ESD!
  • Dangers of ESD to Electronics

    While ESD is not harmful to humans, it can cause severe damage to electronic components or even cause fire and explosion in hazardous areas. Read on to find out more about the dangers of ESD to electronic devices!

  • What is Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)?

    Have you ever felt a jolt when you touched a doorknob, heard a crackling sound when you removed your sweater, or seen a lightning but could not figure out why? Read on to find out more!
  • Conformal Coating Defects & How To Prevent Them

    A single defect in conformal coating can compromise the long-term reliability of PCBs, necessitating time-consuming and costly repairs or rework. This issue can be avoided if defects are prevented in the first place. There are 6 common defects to look out for, as well as ways to avoid them. Read on to find out!
  • Removal Methods of Conformal Coatings

    Conformal coating must be removed if damaged PCB components need to be replaced, or if there are coating defects to be removed. To ensure that the PCB components are not damaged, each type of coating has its own removal methods. Read on to find out!
  • Soldering and Flux

    Flux is a chemical cleaning agent commonly used in soldering, but are you aware of its purpose? Read on to learn more about why it is used and why it is essential to remove flux residue once soldering is complete!
