Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder is pleased to announce its participation at FIVEL 2017, scheduled to take place on September 12th-14th, 2017 at the Escola Técnica de Eletrônica’s campus in Santa Rita do Sapucaí, Brazil. AIM will highlight its full line of advanced solder materials, produced locally by Alfatec Indústria e Comércio Ltda. Visit the company in booth 62.

Over the past several years, AIM has expanded its presence and support network in Brazil. In 2016, AIM announced the addition of Alfatec Indústria e Comércio Ltda as a licensed manufacturer to meet the growing demand for AIM solder materials within the Brazilian market. Today, locally produced AIM solder paste liquid flux, bar solder, and cored and solid wire solders are available throughout Brazil.  Additionally, customers rely on AIM's local sales and technical support teams in Sao Paulo and Manaus to support them in achieving their manufacturing goals.

At Fivel, AIM will highlight its revolutionary M8 solder paste, which has been formulated to address the most demanding requirements confronting today’s SMT assembly market. M8 is proven to improve production yields and product quality, whether printing 0.50 area ratios or eliminating voiding on QFN and LED packages. Additionally, AIM will highlight its innovative high reliability, lead-free alloys, REL61™ and REL22. REL61 addresses the most challenging issues with today’s common lead-free alloys, specifically voiding, cost, durability and tin whiskers. REL22 has been specifically engineered as an easily processed, exceptionally durable alloy for extreme service environments. To discover all of AIM’s products and services, visit the company at FIVEL for more information.

Reliability of ENEPIG by Sequential Thermal Cycling and Aging

11/06/2017 | Reza Ghaffarian, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
Electroless nickel/electroless palladium/immersion gold (ENEPIG) surface finish for PCBs has now become a key surface finish that is used for both tin-lead and lead-free solder assemblies. This article presents the reliability of LGA component packages with 1156 pads assembled with tin-lead solder onto PCBs with an ENEPIG finish and then subjected to thermal cycling and then isothermal aging.

The Root Causes & Solutions for Warped PC Boards

09/27/2017 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
There are two primary types of causes of board warping: process related at the fab or assembly shop, and layout related issues. If it's warped before assembly, it's between fab and layout. If it's flat before assembly and warped after, it's most likely between layout and assembly. That said, sometimes a fab problem won't show up until a pass through the reflow oven at your assembly partner.

X-Ray Inspection of Lead and Lead-Free Solder Joints

07/31/2017 | Glen Thomas, Ph.D., and Bill Cardoso, Ph.D., Creative Electron Inc.
As aerospace companies consider the shift to lead-free solder alloys and glues, concerns have been raised about whether their current X-ray inspection and quality-control procedures will still be valid. With lead solder, joints are easily interpreted by the operator or the system imaging software because lead provides excellent image contrasts due to relatively high X-ray absorption compared to that of PCB and component materials. Will this hold true as they shift to lead-free solder compounds?
