Reliability matters
SelecTech’s Tom Ricciardelli recently appeared on the Reliability Matters podcast, hosted by the editors of PCD&F/Circuits Assembly and sponsored by the Printed Circuit Engineering Association (PCEA). You can check out the podcast by clicking the button below.

Here’s an excerpt from the show notes.

"Modern electronics assembly has seen so many changes over the years. In today’s era of IoT, the electrification of vehicles, the explosion in the use of bottom terminated components, the increasing implementation of electronics into harsh environments have all contributed to the increasing complexity and difficulty of building electronics. While so much has changed, there are some things that have remained the same.

One such thing is the need for ESD control. There always was and continues to be the challenge of protecting components from the dangers of static electricity. My guest today is Thomas Ricciardelli, founder and CEO of SelecTech, a manufacturer of ESD flooring for the electronics assembly industry.

Tom is also the chairman of the Flooring Committee of the EOS/ESD Association. Tom earned a master's in chemical engineering from MIT and an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management."

Electronics Manufacturing and Repair
These divisions of the electronics industry are the backbone of the ESD market. Often, manufacturing volumes are high and production is 24/7. Failures due to ESD events can be devastating. Having a reliable ESD Protected Area (EPA) is critical and often required by the end-users of the products being made.
