Ruggedization of Electronic Circuits? Encapsulation is One of The Best-kept Protection Secrets

Posted by Vlad David on Jul 12, 2018 12:00:00 PM

While conformal coatings increase the lifetime of electronic devices by providing a thin barrier that strengthens their ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions, adhesives and encapsulants provide a significantly higher level of protection on the entire assembly.

The most common properties of adhesives and encapsulants include:

  • creating environmental seals that protect against moisture and corrosion,
  • providing high-temperature resistance,
  • increasing shock and vibration dampening,
  • generating strong bonds to a variety of substrates,
  • maintaining low shrinkage, and
  • offering thermal conductivity.

How Best to Protect PCB Mounted Components from Vibration

Posted by Albert Hernandez on Feb 26, 2018 1:00:00 PM

Electronics continue to be placed into harsher environments, and PCB component vibration dampening remains a challenge for many industries. When the solder connection strength is not going to be sufficient to withstand years of vibration, there is a solution: staking materials.

Numerous fields of industry manufacture products that are prone to high-vibration environments. Some of them are:
