Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder announces their participation at the SMTA West Penn Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place March 28th, 2018 at the DoubleTree Monroeville Hotel in Monroeville, Pennsylvania. AIM will highlight their revolutionary REL61 and award-winning REL22 lead-free alloys along with their full line of solder assembly materials.

REL61 was developed to provide PCB assemblers and designers with an enhanced reliability, cost-effective replacement for SAC305 and other low/no silver alloys. REL61 outperforms all common lead-free alloys in durability, wetting performance, thermal cycling performance, and BTC void performance.  Available in paste, wire and bar solder formats, REL61 can be incorporated into all phases of PCB assembly. 

AIM will also highlight its full line of advanced solder materials, including its solder paste, liquid flux solder alloys, and its newly developed and award-winning REL22 solder alloy for extremely harsh environments. To discover all of AIM’s products and services, visit the company at the SMTA West Penn Expo & Tech Forum for more information.

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.
