AIM to Host SMT High-Reliability Technology Seminar in China


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder will co-host the SMT Electronics Assembly High-Reliability Technology Seminar in Shenzhen, China on December 8, 2017. AIM will present two of its most recent papers at the seminar.

Derek Wang, Technical Support Manager, will present the white paper titled “An In-Depth Look at a New Low Cost and High-Reliability Alloy Alternative to SAC305 and Low-/No-Silver Alloys.” His presentation will cover the evolution of lead-free soldering and the limitations of SAC305, the current standard for lead-free electronics soldering. It will explore the effects of nickel, bismuth and other micro-alloy dopants on mechanical and soldering performance.

Flopy Feng, Technical Support Engineer, will present AIM’s paper “The Impact of Reduced Solder Alloy Powder Size on Solder Paste Print Performance,” which highlights the benefits and implications of finer mesh solder powder on critical aspects of solder paste performance. In this study, the key input variables included powder size, effect of room temperature storage, pause time and PCB feature types.  Output included print transfer efficiency, volume repeatability and performance stability over time.

This free seminar, hosted by AIM, Axxon, Mycronic, and Zestron, will be held at the Silicon Valley Power Vehicle Electronic Business Park in Shenzhen, China. For more information, please contact Michelle Peng via email at mpeng@aimsolder.com or by phone at 130-6694-5432.

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.
