TopLine CCGA, PID Vibration Damping Technology to Highlight Exhibit at productronica


Reading time ( words)

TopLine’s CCGA Column Grid Array IC packages and new Particle Impact Dampers (PID) that reduce random vibration will highlight the company’s exhibit at productronica 2017. TopLine will exhibit in Hall A4 Booth 504, where a PID informational video and demonstration will be held continuously in the booth over the 4-day show.

In making the announcement, Martin Hart, President, stated, “We’re reaching out especially to international customers at the show to introduce them to these enabling technologies. In fact, we’ve been continuously active in promoting our products in the global market for 28 years. We’re especially excited about the benefits of CCGAs, as well as new PID technology that reduces harmful vibrations and extends hardware life and reliability.”

TopLine’s CCGA Column Grid Array IC packages are made with non-collapsible solder columns for surface mount soldering on printed circuit boards (PCBs), and provide more compliancy than solder balls (Ball Grid Arrays or BGAs) to absorb stress and increase solder joint reliability under harsh operating conditions.

PID is a COTS commercially-available standard solution, suitable for retrofitting and hardening heritage hardware in the field. PIDs can be solder attached like ordinary components, or attached to the board using permanent epoxy adhesive. TopLine’s new series of Particle Impact Dampers were invented at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center.

For more information and to see a demonstration, visit Hall A4 Booth 504 at productronica; those interested are also encouraged to visit a new web site showing a 2-minute YouTube video showing how the PID works; Please click here.

Use of new technologies poses a number of challenges for solder paste selection, PCB design, assembly process, and reliability. The type of end product will have different challenges, concerns, and requirements in all aspects. The assembly line for many of these end products will look very similar, but specification limits would be different.

Creating the Perfect Solder Joint

11/03/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
From a visual standpoint, a good solder joint should be smooth, bright, shiny, clean, and have a nice concave solder fillet. But how do you ensure that inside those joints, good intermetallic bonds are formed? Solder joints play several different roles, and they represent several different opportunities to be a problem, a partial improvement, or a complete improvement. Since all solder joints aren’t created equal, the first step is to understand what is expected or required of that joint.
