TopLine to Exhibit Solutions at IC & Sensor Packaging Technology Expo, Tokyo


Reading time ( words)

TopLine will exhibit at the IC & Sensor Packaging Technology Expo, one of the seven shows concurrently hosted under one roof at the Tokyo Big Sight during the 47th Nepcon, January 17-19, 2018. At the expo, TopLine will introduce CCGA column grid array technology as well as vibration damping for extending the life of printed circuit boards.

TopLine CCGA Column Grid Array IC packages are made with high temperature solder columns for surface mount (SMT) soldering on printed circuit boards (PCBs). CCGA packages provide more compliancy than BGA solder balls (Ball Grid Arrays) to absorb stress caused by CTE mismatch and increase solder joint reliability under harsh operating conditions.

TopLine’s Particle Impact Dampers (PID) reduce random vibration in PCB board assemblies in harsh environments. “Reducing harmful vibrations extends hardware life and reliability,” states Martin Hart, President.

TopLine will be reaching out to customers at the show to introduce them to these enabling technologies. TopLine has been continuously active in promoting solutions-oriented products in the global market for 28 years. The show is expected to bring 35,000 visitors from Japan, China and Korea.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

Another year is over in the SMT industry. 2017 saw a myriad of hot topics, including Industry 4.0, the millennials’ entry into the manufacturing space, and alternative solder materials, to name a few. Without further ado, here are the Top 10 columns from SMT007 over the past year.

The Effect of Area Shape and Area Ratio on Solder Paste Printing Performance

12/28/2017 | Stefan Härter, et al.
The ongoing miniaturization trend in the SMT production induces new challenges and highly integrated systems. In passive components, the miniaturization leads to the introduction of the EIA size 01005 or smaller. Despite numerous publications in this field already addressing the printing of such devices, a defined wholly optimized process remains unsolved and inspires further novel research ideas on this topic.
