Reading time ( words)

The SMTA is pleased to announce the Best Papers from SMTA International 2016. As speakers at SMTA International, individuals make contributions to the industry by sharing their research and findings. To reward exceptional achievement, $1,000 awards and plaques are given for the Best of Conference Presentation, Best of Proceedings Paper, Best International Paper, as well as a $500 award for Best Student Paper. 

The winner from SMTA International 2016 for the Rich Freiberger Best of Conference Award is Mike Bixenman, DBA, KYZEN Corporation for his presentation entitled “BTC/QFN Test Board Design Considerations and Method for Qualifying Soldering Materials and Cleaning Processes.” The award is based on the conference attendees’ rating of each speaker at the technical session. 

Paul Vianco, Ph.D., from Sandia National Laboratories won the Best of Proceedings category for the paper “Predicting the Reliability of Package-on-Package-on-Package (PoPoP) Interconnections Based on Accelerated Aging Experiments and Computational Modeling.”  

Mathias Nowottnick, Ph.D., University of Rostock, won the Best International Paper category for the paper entitled “Comparison of Active and Passive Temperature Cycling.” This award and the Best of Proceedings are selected by the SMTA International Technical Committee. 

Mohammed Genanu, Binghamton University, was awarded Best Student Paper for his paper “Microstructure and Performance of Micro Cu Pillars Assemblies.” 

The authors will formally be presented their awards at the Opening Ceremony during SMTA International on September 19, 2017 in Rosemont, Illinois. For information on participating in the 2017 SMTA International Conference, visit the Call for Papers page here. Abstracts can be uploaded directly online and will be accepted through January 27, 2017.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
