iNEMI Survey on New Package Technology Qualification Methodology

Reading time ( words)

The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) invites you to participate in a survey to help the electronics industry understand package qualification methodologies currently in use and how robust qualification plans are typically generated/developed.

This survey follows up on one conducted earlier this year by iNEMI’s New Packaging Technology Qualification Methodology project. It takes a closer look at the deficiencies and/or gaps in existing test methods and qualification standards identified in the previous survey, and focuses on more detailed information in a few key areas, specifically new package technologies and application spaces. The topics covered in this survey include:

  • Test methods
  • Qualification standards
  • New application use conditions
  • New application spaces
  • Package qualification methodology tools

Information from the two surveys will be used to recommend a methodology for the development and qualification of new packaging technologies and materials. The project will also report on current best practices for packaging qualification and address the gaps identified by the surveys.

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.
