Green Electronics Manufacturing: Creating Environmental Sensible Products (Paperback)John X. Wang (author)
- We can order this
Going "green" is becoming a major component of the mission for electronics manufacturers worldwide. While this goal seems simplistic, it poses daunting dilemmas. Yet, to compete effectively in the global economy, manufacturers must take the initiative to drive this crucial movement. Green Electronics Manufacturing: Creating Environmental Sensible Products provides you with a complete reference to design, develop, build, and install an electronic product with special consideration for the product's environmental impacts during its whole life cycle.
The author discusses how to integrate the state-of-the-art technologies of finite element method (FEM) modeling, simulation, and testing to create environmental sensible products of satisfying global environmental regulations, such as Restriction of Hazardous Substances (ROHS) compliance. He covers enabling techniques such as advanced fatigue life modeling, crack propagation analysis, and probabilistic robust design of lead-free electronics. The book also explores how risk engineering methodology empowers practitioners with effective tools such as buckling analysis of tin whiskers.
With its emphasis on reducing parts, rationing materials, and reusing components to make products more efficient to build, green electronics intertwines today's electronics with manufacturing strategies of global sourcing, concurrent engineering, and total quality. Implemented through product and process design, it can help you achieve sustainability to support future generations and at the same time preserve our natural resources. Green Electronics Manufacturing: Creating Environmental Sensible Products gives you the tools to create environmental sensible products while maintaining electronics quality and reliability.

"The book by Dr. Wang, Green Electronics Manufacturing, is a very useful addition to currently available literature. It is written in language that is very clear to the practitioner who is not a specialist in material science. The topics covered in the book cover a broad range of aspects that are critical to producing high-quality products - not the old paradigm of working out the defects after placing a product on the market. The market today requires very efficient manufacturing with attention given to environmental impact in addition to meeting the functional need satisfied by the given product. While broad in scope, this book goes into detail about soldering as a process as well as the quality of the bond and function of the solder joint. This book is both practical as well as thorough in its approach."
-Marvin Roush, Professor Emeritus, Reliability Engineering, University of Maryland
"... clearly the result of high quality work done by a very competent person. Dr. Wang manages to make available very complex subject both for the experienced reader as well as for the inexperienced reader. ... The book gives a very comprehensive description of the multidisciplinary approach to reduce the energy- and material-intensiveness of manufacturing electronical components."
-Dr. Rune Reinertsen, Eni Norge AS, Norway
"I have known Dr. Wang for over 10 years. He is very thorough and knowledgeable. I have copies of his previous books and use them as reference material often. I have no doubt that this book will be as valuable as his others. I look forward to receiving a copy when it is completed."
