Join Frank Schabert from TE Connectivity for a Webinar and interactive Q&A on LITESURF plating for a new class of headers and connectors in advanced automotive electronics manufacturing. This 60-minute Webinar discusses the engineering of a Bismuth-based coating for press-fit connectors and pins that drastically reduces whisker risk while still using safe, sustainable materials. Learn how global manufacturers are deploying this technology for impressive quality and reliability gains within denser, more capable ECUs.
