Ray Prasad to Hold IPC Tech Ed Webinar Series on BGA and BTC Assembly


Reading time ( words)

With the right design and reflow profile, you are set up to achieve a successful high-yield assembly process. Ray Prasad, Ray Prasad Consultancy Group and IPC Hall of Famer, takes a deep dive into how to achieve low defect rates in his three-part webinar series titled Ball Grid Array (BGA) and Bottom Termination Component (BTC) Design and Assembly Challenges: Reflow Profiling to Achieve Low Defect Rates and Successful Assembly.

The webinar series brings together the latest information on recent/upcoming updates to IPC standards IPC-7095D, Design and Assembly Process Implementation for BGAs; IPC-7093, Design and Assembly Process Implementation of Bottom Termination SMT Components, new revision coming soon; and IPC-7530A, Guidelines for Temperature Profiling for Mass Soldering Processes.

As Chair of the committees developing these standards, Prasad brings critical insight to the importance of the changes to improve industry best practices for assembly.

Key takeaways from the webinar will be:

  • How to properly develop profiles for various soldering processes including reflow, wave, vapor phase, laser and selective soldering
  • Understand the importance of achieving time above liquidus for selected solder alloys and the impact on common assembly defects
  • Overviews of BGA and BTC designs to enable effective high-yield assembly processes
  • Areas to investigate when troubleshooting manufacturing issues with BGAs and BTCs
  • Deep analysis of critical challenges such as voiding, head-on-pillow, pad cratering and more!
  • The live webinar events are scheduled as follows:
  • August 27, 1:00 pm–2:00 pm CDT: Free Introduction Webinar
  • September 19, 1:00 pm–3:00 pm CDT: Part 1: Focus on Bottom Termination Components
  • October 3, 1:00 pm–3:00 pm CDT: Part 2: Focus on Ball Grid Array Challenges

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
