Practical Components Adds SMTA Solder Paste Test Vehicle for Miniaturized SMT


Reading time ( words)

Practical Components has added a new SMTA solder paste test vehicle for miniaturized surface mount technology (SMT) to its array of dummy components, solder training kits and PCB evaluation kits.

Consumer demand has accelerated the pace of the electronics miniaturization trend, compelling assemblers to develop robust capabilities for 01005 components and 0.3 mm pitch array packages in order to remain competitive. To optimize the stencil printing and reflow aspects of SMT assembly given the challenging new realities, a process evaluation tool has been developed that provides a turnkey solution for solder paste performance testing. 

This new kit can be configured in a large variety of ways depending on customer needs. Additionally, it features pads for 0.5 mm pitch BGAs down to 008004.

This vehicle is available with ENIG, ImAg, OSP, ImSn and SnPb HASL finishes and a Stencil Set also is available.

Practical Components is committed to ensuring that electronics assembly engineers and technicians have access to the latest technologies and components to remain competitive. Practical’s goal is to help companies take the next step in growing their business and qualifying their process.

Optimizing Solder Paste Volume for Low-Temperature Reflow of BGA Packages

07/22/2019 | Keith Sweatman, Nihon Superior Co. Ltd
In this article, Keith Sweatman explains how the volume of low-melting-point alloy paste—which delivers the optimum proportion of retained ball alloy for a particular reflow temperature—can be determined by reference to the phase diagrams of the ball and paste alloys.

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.
