Akrometrix to Launch Ultra-Fast Tabletop Warpage Metrology System at productronica


Reading time ( words)

Akrometrix LLC will display its newest warpage metrology system in Hall A3 Stand 102/1 at productronica 2017, scheduled to take place November 14–17, 2017 at the Messe München in Munich, Germany. The new Tabletop Shadow Moiré (TTSM) system offers all of the software features of Akrometrix's thermal warpage metrology systems in a room temperature unit which provides full field-of-view measurement in less than two seconds.

Akrometrix is not only the industry leader in providing thermal warpage, but has optional modules for both DIC strain/CTE measurements and DFP for discontinuous surfaces. Utilizing a novel combination of both top and bottom heaters with shadow moiré, Akrometrix is providing temperature uniformity previously unattainable in the industry on a flexible/configurable platform. 

The TTSM responds to the industry’s demand for an ultra-fast tabletop warpage metrology system. It enables customers to measure warpage of substrates up to 300mm x 310mm (a 300mm wafer or two JEDEC trays) with the entire measurement taking less than two seconds. Whether individual parts or a JEDEC tray of multiple parts, the TTSM provides an ultra-fast and highly accurate measurement at room temperature that is suited for tabletop use.

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.

RTW IPC APEX EXPO: KIC on Smart Factory Technology Approach in Thermal Ovens

Bjorn Dahle, president of KIC Thermal, discusses with I-Connect007 Guest Editor Dick Crowe their approach to measuring temperatures in thermal ovens and networking the information to a main frame, to enable the process engineer to statistically monitor a specific process.

The Impact of Via and Pad Design on QFN Assembly

01/25/2017 | David Geiger, Anwar Mohammed and Jennifer Nguyen, Flex
Thermal via arrays under QFN components are used to conduct heat away from the device. However, thermal vias can create more voids or result in solder protrusion onto the secondary side. This paper discusses a study on the impact of via size and via design on QFN voiding and solder protrusion.
