SEHO Focuses on 100% Process Control


Reading time ( words)

SEHO Systems GmbH will focus on automatic process control in Hall 4, Stand 129 at the upcoming SMT/Hybrid/Packaging show, scheduled to take place May 16-18, 2017 at the Messe in Nuremberg, Germany. The selective soldering system SEHO SelectLine-C has been even further optimized. 

SEHO will introduce its new cross sensor at the exhibition that takes over several functions. On the one hand, the wave height is precisely controlled. The measurement is made touchless directly at the solder nozzle and it is fully independent from the solder alloy used. In addition, the cross sensor is also used for automatic tool measurement: diameter, height and mounting position of the solder nozzle are automatically controlled, thus excluding potential operator errors. 

Also new, being introduced for the first time, is an automatic nitrogen flow quantity control. 

SEHO is the only manufacturer worldwide which offers the opportunity to integrate additional processes directly into its selective soldering systems. This includes, for example, a brush system for solder joint cleaning or an AOI system for automatic detection of soldering defects. The benefits are obvious: no additional floor space is required in the production area. At the same time production costs will be reduced as the entire board handling is performed by the axes systems that are integrated in the selective soldering machine anyway. 

By adding an intelligent handling concept from SEHO, assemblies that have been identified as defective can automatically be removed from the production line. 

The new process control functions ideally supplement already existing features such as flux quantity monitoring, monitoring of the nitrogen quality or the automatic position and z-height correction thus ensuring a 100 % process control.

Under the Hood: Solder Joint Reliability

05/21/2018 | Burton Carpenter, NXP Semiconductors Inc.
It has been long established that packages using NSMD BGA pads were more resilient than ones with SMD pads to fatigue-induced solder joint cracks. However, NSMD pads in previous investigations on 292MAPBGA and 416PBGA packages failed sooner in AATS testing due to an alternate failure mode: substrate Cu trace cracks. This article looks into the effects of substrate material and package pad design on solder joint reliability of 0.8 mm pitch BGA.
