Two new working groups will meet to develop Recommended Practices during ESTECH 2007, the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) annual technical meeting and exposition. The conference will take place April 29-May 2, 2007 at the Indian Lakes Resort in Bloomingdale (northwest suburban Chicago), Illinois.
New IEST Working Group Meetings at ESTECH 2007
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL | Posted on January 17th, 2007
Liquid-borne particle measurement in the semiconductor industry involves many technical challenges, which if not handled properly can substantially affect the measurement results, both in the sizing and the counting of the particles. The new working group on Liquid-borne Particle Counting will focus on developing a new Recommended Practice (RP). The RP will cover topics such as types of LPC instruments, bubble issues, refractive index ratio effect, coincidence level, cumulative versus differential counts, lower detection limit, and particle extraction methods.
Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) and Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS) uncover design defects and weaknesses in electronic and mechanical assemblies to help deliver better products to the marketplace. The new working group titled HALT and HASS, meeting for the first time at ESTECH 2007, will discuss these test methods.
IEST offers Recommended Practices on a broad range of topics. A Recommended Practice Update session will highlight provisions of the most widely used documents published by the Design, Test, and Evaluation/Product Reliability Division. Members of existing IEST Working Groups and other interested persons are invited and encouraged to attend.
Registration and the advance program can be found at http://www.iest.org/estech/estech.htm . Do not forget to sign up for the ESTECH 2007 Golf Outing to be held Sunday, April 29 at 1 p.m.
Founded in 1953, IEST is an international technical society of engineers, scientists, and educators that serves its members and the industries they represent (simulating, testing, controlling, and teaching the environments of earth and space) through education and the development of recommended practices and standards.
IEST is an ANSI-accredited standards-developing organization; Secretariat of ISO/TC 209 Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments; Administrator of the ANSI-accredited US TAG to ISO/TC 209; Administrator of the ANSI-accredited US TAG to ISO/TC 142 Cleaning equipment for air and other gases; and a founding member of the ANSI-accredited US TAG to ISO/TC 229 Nanotechnologies.
