Stencil Life

Stencil life was evaluated by measuring the printed solder paste volumes for a given aperture. The classification was made based on the solder paste volume variability between the different printing conditions. The time between prints was used as a process variable (one-hour intervals up to 12-hour intervals were used). Figure 8 shows the data for the 12-mil circles with AR=0.6, Figure 9 presents the data for 15-mil circles with AR=0.75, and Figure 10 presents the data for 20-mil circles with AR=1.

Voiding

For the reflow step, a seven-zone Vitronics oven was employed. The reflow profile employed for the low-temperature alloys and SAC305 spheres is shown in Figure 11.
