Portable consumer electronic devices have experienced exponential growth in recent years. Although the reliability implications and performance criteria of these products are significantly different from electronic hardware of the past, no single volume has covered the materials, design, and reliability aspects of these products until the publication of this new book.
Written by two noted leaders of the electronics industry, Portable Consumer Electronics provides a comprehensive account of the key aspects of packaging for portable consumer electronic devices, including first- and second-level packaging; printed wiring board technology; assembly technology; reliability statistics and engineering; and failure analysis.
Portable Consumer Electronics: Packaging, Materials, and Reliability will be beneficial to practicing engineers, product development managers, technologists, and designers involved in the electronics industry.
