Zymet to Feature Reworkable Edgebond Adhesive at IPC APEX EXPO


Reading time ( words)

adhesive.jpgAt the IPC’s APEX EXPO, Zymet will be featuring a reworkable edgebond adhesive that has recently been shown to be capable of significantly enhancing the board level reliability (BLR) of low temperature solder (LTS) assemblies. Low temperature solders are the subject of growing interest for their ability to reduce energy consumption, reduce warpage and increase assembly yields, and as a path to more complex assemblies. Though the BLR of LTS assemblies can be quite good, there are still packages that do not perform well enough on their own, particularly in high reliability or harsh environment applications.  Using an underfill to overcome deficient BLR performance is a less-than-ideal process, requiring board preheat to facilitate underfill flow, dwell times to wait for underfill flow, while yielding encapsulation outcomes that cannot be 100% verified by AOI. Edgebonding, on the other hand, is quick and completely verifiable.  Figure 1 illustrates the use of an edgebond adhesive both in a corner-only configuration and in a full-edgebond configuration. Both configurations enhance BLR. The reworkable edgebond adhesive also enhances the mechanical shock or drop test reliability of assemblies.

Zymet welcomes visitors to stop by its booth to collect more information or to discuss the use of reworkable edgebond adhesives. Representatives of Zymet will be at booth #1350, APEX EXPO 2019, January 29- 31, 2019, at the San Diego Convention Center, Sand Diego, California, USA.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
