John O?Boyle is the business manager for the Military Business Unit at Maxim Integrated Products. He regularly interfaces with customers and discusses their needs for mil spec parts, and also spends a good deal of effort planning for and driving the release of these parts. Additionally, he has developed an innovative program for the delivery of SnPb finished parts to military customers that require a non-lead-free finish. John is also a regular presenter on behalf of Maxim?s Military Business Unit at industry conferences. John holds BSEE, MSEE, and MBA degrees from Santa Clara University.
Over the past decade, standards for up-screening commercial devices to meet higher temperature, military and space-level requirements have increased, making it a risky and potentially costly practice. Although this practice is not condoned by component manufacturers such as Maxim, the reality is that many OEMs shoulder these risks and actively engage in up-screening.
Join Maxim’s John O’Boyle for an on-demand Web Seminar devoted to exploring the risks, costs and design ramifications associated with up-screening and how to mitigate these risks with simple, cost-effective solutions. Discussion topics include:
- Known and hidden up-screening costs
- Risks of up-screening
- Metal migration
- Impact on operating life
- Ruggedized plastic with SnPb finish standard - lead-free optional - 100% burned-in and tri-temp tested (room temp, 125 degrees C, and -55 degrees C)
- Test programs tighter than the data sheet limits
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how Maxim ruggedized plastic devices can improve system reliability in electrically stressful environments in applications that demand high-temperature performance and enhanced reliability such as mobile military and aerospace systems.
