Dr. Jennie Hwang to Discuss Solder Joint Voids at SMTA Webtorial Sessions


Reading time ( words)

Industry expert Dr. Jennie Hwang, CEO of H-Technologies Group, will talk about solder joint voids at two 90-minute SMTA Webtorial sessions on November 1 and 2, from 1:00pm to 2:30pm ET.

This webtorial provides a holistic overview on solder joint voids. Four fronts in the industry have rekindled the interest and/or concerns about solder joint voids – the lead-free solder joints; the increased use of advanced packages (BTCs, PoPs); the ever-miniaturized electronics comprising “delicate” solder joints; and the increased demand in solder joint reliability for high performance and high reliability products. Different sources of solder joint voids, and their respective causes and effects on the solder joint performance and reliability will be discussed. The practiced acceptance criteria of solder joint voids vs. real-world performance, and the steps to minimize solder joint voids of both the array solder ball solder joints (e.g., PoP, BGA, CSP) and lead-frame solder joints (e.g., QFP, BTC) will also be outlined. The webtorial will conclude with the source of voids that is most critical to reliability, thus to avoid.

The webtorial provides the working knowledge to all who are concerned about the reliability or interested in understanding the solder joint properties in relation to voids including designers, engineers, researchers, managers and business decision makers.

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.

What Matters Most is Communication

12/04/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While there may be new techniques and strategies, technologies, equipment, tools, and materials to employ and utilize, there is always one thing that will ensure the manufacturing/ assembly success of your product: communication. Communication between the designer and the assembler will help improve the manufacturability and assembly of the final product—even before the board design gets fabricated.
