Dr. Jennie Hwang to Present on Package/Board Level Integrity & Solder Joint Reliability at IMAPS 2017


Reading time ( words)

Industry expert Dr. Jennie S. Hwang will leverage her decades of extensive real-world experiences and deep knowledge to present on package and board level integrity, as well as solder joint reliability, at the upcoming IMAPS 2017 symposium, to be held from October 9–12, 2017 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

With the goal to produce reliable products while achieving high yield production, this short course provides a holistic overview of product reliability and of critical players of the package/board level integrity and solder joint reliability, including the roles of materials, processes and testing/service conditions, as well as the crucial principles behind the product reliability. Recent developments related to lead-free solder materials and the prevention of PCB laminates issues, tin whisker and intermetallics-related concerns in relation to manufacturability and reliability will be outlined.

The short course emphasizes on practical, working knowledge, yet balanced and substantiated by science. Interactions are encouraged, and attendees are welcome to bring their own selected systems for deliberation.

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.

Improving Solder Paste Printing

12/12/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Of the three elements involved in the solder paste printing process—stencil, solder paste, and printer—the stencil is considered one of the major factors affecting the transfer efficiency, accuracy, and consistency, of solder pastes into the pads, especially with the continuing trend towards miniaturization.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.
