“Koh Young is dedicated to helping electronics manufacturers improve quality and yield with its measurement-based inspection solutions, so sponsoring this failure analysis event with Kyzen, TTCI, and Zestron was an easy decision,” said Brent A. Fischthal, Senior Marketing Manager at Koh Young America and the SMTA Carolinas Chapter President. “The speaker line-up and topics will help provide answers, but the live Q&A session on Friday will really provide attendees with focused responses to specific issues they are facing. This will surely be an excellent event.”
