LiloTree’s Dr. Kunal Shah to Present at SMTA International 2018


Reading time ( words)

LiloTree’s President and Founder Dr. Kunal Shah will present a white paper called “A Novel & Cost-effective Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold (ENIG) Surface Finish for Better Reliability of Electronic Assemblies" as part of a panel discussion at this year’s SMTA International to be held on October 16 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. (Eastern; 11-12:30 p.m. Local).

Dr. Shah will present his paper on his National Science Foundation award winning innovative new ENIG-premium, a ground-breaking, world-changing innovation that provide better ENIG performance without cyanide. Because this product is about to be introduced to the general market, everyone interested in a much better performing ENIG (no black pads & robust solder joints) while getting rid of the cyanide and saving up to 30% on gold usage should attend this panel discussion to hear Dr. Shah talk about ENIG-premium.

Long-time industry expert, Steve Williams, had called ENIG-premium the most important technological innovation in the past 20years. “After seeing the third-party test results, I am a true believer in ENIG-premium. It performs better than traditional ENIG, including allowing for a much more controlled gold plating so that there is on average a 30% savings on gold usage. And it gets rid of that nasty cyanide. This will be good for the PCB builders and ever better for the CEMs and OEMs in terms of higher reliability who are using the boards,” said Williams.

IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Attendees Speak: Dr. Martin Anselm

"The biggest challenge I’ve encountered a number of different times is the migration to much larger packaging," said Dr. Martin Anselm, director of CEMA Lab. "Devices are getting much larger, and with the thousands of I/O of solder joints, and they are not just single-die, multi-chip modules in different forms or 2.5D technologies. Further, there are challenges associated with soldering. How do we go away from traditional soldering technologies or methodologies where these devices are so complex that warpage or alloy or reliability is driving us into unknown territories with soldering methodologies?
