Indium Features New Fluxes at productronica China


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature its new Flip-Chip Flux WS-446HF and Ball Attach Flux WS-823 at productronica China, March 20-22, in Shanghai, China.

Indium Corporation’s WS-446HF is a water-soluble, halogen-free, flip-chip dipping flux with an activator system powerful enough to promote good wetting on the most demanding surfaces - including solder-on-pad (SoP), Cu-OSP, ENIG, embedded trace substrates (ETS), and flip-chip on leadframe applications. WS-446HF provides:

  • Excellent solderability to reduce open joints
  • Tackiness suitable for holding large die in place during assembly and reducing die tilt
  • Chemistry that eliminates dendrite issues
  • Reduced voiding
  • Good cleanability

WS-823 is a water-soluble, halogen-free, ball-attach flux designed for use in pin transfer and printing applications for ball attachment to both substrates (BGA manufacturing) and wafers for WLP (wafer-level packaging). WS-823 offers:

  • Excellent solderability on some of the most demanding substrate metallizations, such as copper OSP
  • Lower process costs and warpage due to the elimination of “pre-fluxing”
  • Consistent flux deposition
  • Good tack during heating combined with fast soldering eliminates missing ball
  • Low-cost simplified cleaning

Both WS-446HF and WS-823 are cleanable with just DI water only.

Approaches to Overcome Nodules and Scratches on Wire-Bondable Plating on PCBs

07/17/2019 | Young K. Song and Vanja Bukva, Teledyne Dalsa Inc., and Ryan Wong, FTG Circuits
Initially adopted internal specifications for acceptance of printed circuit boards (PCBs) used for wire bonding was that there were no nodules or scratches allowed on the wirebond pads when inspected under 20X magnification. This paper details if wire bonding could be successfully performed over nodules and scratches and if there was a dimensional threshold where wire bonding could be successful.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.
