Indium Corporation’s Fiona Chen, Manager of Research & Development, will deliver a presentation at ELEXCON 2018, December 20-22 in Shenzhen, China.
Chen will present on the topic of Fluxes Suppressing Non-Wet Opens at BGA Assembly. The paper examines the advancement of miniaturization and its impact on the increased severity of thermal warpage and resultant non-wet opens (NWO) at BGA assembly. Chen’s paper studies a “cold-welding barrier” method developed to suppress NWO.
