Green Electronics Manufacturing

Creating environmentally sensible products

Published: Monday, July 16, 2012 - 11:36

(CRC Press: Boca Raton, FL) -- Going “green” is becoming a major component of the mission for electronics manufacturers worldwide. Although this goal seems simplistic, it poses daunting dilemmas. Green Electronics Manufacturing: Creating Environmental Sensible Products, by John X. Wang (CRC Press, 2012) provides you with a complete reference to design, develop, build, and install an electronic product with special consideration for it’s environmental impacts during its whole life cycle.

Wang discusses how to integrate the state-of-the-art technologies of finite element method (FEM) modeling, simulation, and testing to create environmentally sensible products that satisfy global environmental regulations, such as compliance to the UK regulation, Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS). 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 risk engineering methodology and 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, the process can help you achieve sustainability to support future generations and at the same time preserve natural resources. Green Electronics Manufacturing: Creating Environmental Sensible Products gives you the tools to create environmentally sensible products while maintaining electronics quality and reliability.
