Indium Experts to Present at IMAPS 2017


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation experts will share their knowledge and expertise at IMAPS 50th International Symposium on Microelectronics, October 10-12, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Vice President of Technology Dr. Ning-Cheng Lee will teach a professional development course, Choosing Solders for the New Era: Low-Cost High-Reliability Solder Alloys. This course explores the roles of solder composition in relation to cost and reliability, including materials properties, soldering performance, known failure modes, and the primary merit of discussed alloys.

Andy C. Mackie, PhD, MSc, Senior Product Manager for Semiconductor and Advanced Assembly Materials, will co-chair a session on polymers in microelectronics (WA5). This session focuses on the development of polymers for use as encapsulates, dielectrics, conductors, and resistors for use in microelectronic devices.

Tim Jensen, Product Manager for Engineered Solders Materials, will present Reinforced Solder Technology for Increased Reliability. The presentation details the outcomes of a study that showed how, through an optimized design, a reinforced solder preform can produce a solder joint with high-reliability and low-voiding.

Jensen will also co-chair a session on reliability (THA5). This session focuses on several facets of electronics reliability that are impacted as devices generate more power from smaller form factors in broader ranges of applications.

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.
