Dr. Jennie Hwang to Discuss Defects Prevention at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2018


Reading time ( words)

Under today's manufacturing and market environment, the effort to maximize production yield, reduce cost and assure product reliability is becoming increasingly important to a company’s competitiveness. Considering  the new and anticipated developments in packaging and assembly and with the goal of achieving high yield and reliability in mind, the “how-to” prevent prevailing production defects and product reliability issues through an understanding of potential causes is a necessity.

On Wednesday, June 6, Tutorial 7 at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2018 Conference, Nuremberg, Germany will address the top seven production defects and reliability issues - PCB pad cratering (vs. pad lifting); BGA head-on-pillow defect; open or insufficient solder joints; copper dissolution issue; lead-free through-hole barrel filling; intermetallic compounds; and Tin Whisker. Specific defects associated with BTCs and PoPs and the reliability of BTC and PoP assembly will also be outlined.

The course addresses the most prevalent production issues and defects that affect yield, cost and reliability, suitable to all who are involved with or interested in SnPb and Pb-free manufacturing including designers, engineers, researchers, managers and business decision makers; also is designed for those who desire the broad-based information.

Please join your industry colleagues in this tutorial the main topics to be covered are listed below:

What SMT Component Shortages Mean for Design and Manufacturing Engineers

09/13/2018 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
Much has been written about the increasing shortages of electronic components such as MLCCs, chip resistors and other semiconductor devices. And the manufacturing industry is now seeing price increases and greatly extended lead times. It seems the situation is likely to get rapidly worse rather than better. What can we do? Read on.
