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.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.

Improving Solder Paste Printing

12/12/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Of the three elements involved in the solder paste printing process—stencil, solder paste, and printer—the stencil is considered one of the major factors affecting the transfer efficiency, accuracy, and consistency, of solder pastes into the pads, especially with the continuing trend towards miniaturization.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.
