Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder is pleased to announce that Timothy O'Neill, Technical Marketing Manager, will present at the IPC APEX EXPO 2017 taking place February 14-16, 2017 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.

O’Neill will present his white paper "Assessing the Effectiveness of I/O Stencil Aperture Modifications on BTC Void Reduction" on February 15, 2017 at the Voiding and Solder Reflow session from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM. O'Neill's paper covers the challenges that PCB assemblers face due to the combination of leadless terminations with underside ground/thermal pads, including tilting, poor solder fillet formation, difficult inspection and – most notably – center pad voiding. The study focuses on I/O pad stencil modifications rather than center pad modifications. It shows a no-cost, easily implemented I/O design guideline that can be deployed to consistently and repeatedly reduce void formation on BTC-style packages.

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.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: How Engineers Can Use SPI Tools for Verification
