AIM's Derek Wang to Present at SMTA China East Vendor Conference


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder's Derek Wang, Technical Support Manager, will present at the SMTA China East Vendor Conference on April 26, 2017 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center in China.

Wang's presentation, scheduled from 11-11:25 am, will highlight AIM's REL61, a low-cost, high reliability alternative to SAC305 and low-/no-silver alloys. REL61 addresses the most challenging issues with today's common lead-free alloys, specifically voiding, cost, durability and tin whiskers. Combined with AIM M8 Solder Paste, REL61 has reduced voiding on BTC packages by over 45%, increasing both thermal performance and solder joint integrity. Extensive testing indicates that REL61 can reduce tin whisker formation as well as outperform SAC alloys in thermal shock, vibration and drop shock resistance. Additionally, it will highlight key characteristics of AIM's newly developed REL22 solder alloy for extremely harsh environments.

Derek Wang is a Technical Support Manager for AIM Solder. He is a SMTA Certified Engineer and also serves as a SMT Processes Trainer. With over 13 years' experience in the SMT industry, Derek supports AIM customers in Eastern China.

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.
