Indium Expert to Present at InnovationsFORUM Mexico


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation's Ivan Castellanos, technical service manager for Latin America, will present at InnovationsFORUM Mexico on June 14 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Castellanos' paper, QFN Void Reduction Through Profile, Stencil, and Paste Considerations, details the results of a thorough analysis and experimental plan to minimize voiding in QFN assembly, including process and materials parameters.

Castellanos supports Indium's electronics assembly, semiconductor fabrication and packaging, and thermal management markets. He is based in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, and has more than 15 years of experience in electronics assembly manufacturing, including SMT production troubleshooting. Castellanos has a diploma in Electronics and Communications Engineering and is an SMTA Certified SMT Process Engineer (CSMTPE). He has also earned his Six Sigma Green Belt from Dartmouth College's Thayer School of Engineering and has worked for several major manufacturing companies, including Jabil Circuits in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

When considering implementation of Industry 4.0 solutions, following the hype in the market, attention typically is focused on the need for communication between machines on the shop-floor. Knowing what is currently executing and the status of each process in the factory, as well as all the related resources and support operations, provides critical information for Industry 4.0 computerized management systems.

Step Stencil Technologies and Their Effect on the SMT Printing Process

Components such as quad flat no lead (QFNs), land grid array (LGAs), micro ball grid array (micro BGAs), 0201s and even 01005s continue to push manufacturers to use thinner stencil foils to apply the correct volume of paste onto their boards, but larger components such as edge connectors still require larger paste volumes.

What Matters Most is Communication

12/04/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While there may be new techniques and strategies, technologies, equipment, tools, and materials to employ and utilize, there is always one thing that will ensure the manufacturing/ assembly success of your product: communication. Communication between the designer and the assembler will help improve the manufacturability and assembly of the final product—even before the board design gets fabricated.
