Dr. Jennie Hwang to Address "Tin Whisker – All You Should Know" in SMTA Webtorial Sessions


Reading time ( words)

Dr. Jennie Hwang, a long-standing leader in SMT manufacturing and lead-free implementation, will hold two 90-minute SMTA Webtorial Sessions to address tin whiskers. Dr. Hwang's presentation on "Tin Whisker – All You Should Know" will be held on December 7 and 8.

The webinar provides a working knowledge to all who are concerned with or interested in tin whisker and related issues in electronic packages and assemblies including designers, engineers, researchers, managers and business decision makers; also is designed for those who desire the broad-based information.

For the recent years, concerns about tin whiskers are intensifying although tin whisker and its potential mishaps have been recognized for more than six decades in electronic, electrical and industrial applications. The webtorial provides a holistic coverage on tin whisker from physical/phenomenal occurrence to fundamental scientific base to mitigating measures. The webtorial also explains why the tin whisker propensity under a study should be concluded with a specific alloy composition in conjunction with a specific system; and why a reference point is needed. Relative ranking of the tin whisker propensity among lead-free solder alloys in relation to SnPb alloy will be outlined.

Part 1:

  • Definition & clarification
  • Physical phenomena
  • Reference point & criteria
  • Causes and contributing factors
  • Concerns & impact
  • Reliability implications

Part 2:

  • Test conditions
  • Mitigation remedies - Relative effectiveness
  • Plausible theory / mechanism
  • Tin whisker vs. tin pest
  • Summary
  • Recommendations - prevention & mitigation

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
