Amerway Earns ISO 9001 Quality Certification


Reading time ( words)

Amerway Inc. recently has been awarded ISO 9001 quality certification.

"We're pleased and proud to have earned this coveted ISO quality certification, because it recognizes our achievements as we strive to be the best solder manufacturer in North America," says Amerway President Terry Buck. "Amerway provides superior product purity, overall quality, and service. Through proprietary refining techniques, Amerway produces the finest solder in the world."

The drive for ISO certification was spearheaded by Tyler Port, Quality/Project Manager, who was brought aboard, initially, specifically to achieve the ISO 9001 goal.

"Although the effort began in April of 2016, I was hired to complete the ISO certification when I returned from a scheduled military deployment," Tyler says. "Prior to joining the military, I had worked for Amerway for more than three years. During my deployment, I researched and learned everything I could regarding ISO certification, so that when I returned, I immediately got to work."

Based on his prior experience with Amerway, as well as his research into ISO, his efforts enabled Amerway to achieve ISO 9001 certification in the space of five months.

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.
