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.
