New Defect of the Month videos for IPC

Over the last two months, NPL has produced ten 'Defect of the Month' videos to feature on the IPC website, which can also be viewed on the NPL Defects Database

Electronics Interconnection

The videos, which are released monthly, pick up on different assembly and soldering defects, explaining some of the most common causes and useful solutions. Wherever possible, the video is also used to show problems happening in real time to help develop a better understanding of the issues. More of the videos can be seen on the IPC YouTube channel

NPL's Defects Database provides engineers with a valuable online resource to help them solve assembly and soldering problems, and has been hosted by the Electronics Interconnection Group for over three years. The database continues to be a unique service and is supplemented by a monthly column by Chris Hunt in Circuits Assembly magazine.
