June - 2012
Dear Electronics Assembly Colleague:
We had a great start to the summer with Chicago's Bike the Drive event. We and over 20,000 cyclists rode on Chicago's Lake Shore Drive along Lake Michigan.

We are beginning to firm up the planning for this year's technical symposium on BGA assembly/repair. We will have excellent speakers including Dr Lasky, Chris Shay and Norman Mier. Mark your calendars for August 21st.
I also invite you to the SMTA Minnesota (Rochester) on June 7th.
Wishing a great summer!
President, BEST Inc.
While IPC-A-610 offers the skills required to identify target, process indicator and defect conditions found on PCB assemblies, it offers no practical inspection skills. A recently-developed BEST inspection skills class offers a full day course to augment the skills learned and tested in IPC-A-610.
Class instruction is designed to teach attendees the skills of inspection and how to develop inspection strategies for a PCB. Class participants will learn and be taught skills in inspection of throughhole, SMT components as well as wires and cables using real assemblies. Students and their instructor will get a chance to learn from each other as experiences are exchanged while discussing classroom findings.
