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

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: How Engineers Can Use SPI Tools for Verification

05/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Koh Young’s Ray Welch and Brent Fischthal detail how engineers can work with SPI tools to verify how small they can go in component size with their solder paste application, and how the company’s SPI equipment is helping not only to verify but also to help drive the development collaboration between solder paste and stencil printer manufacturers, and inspection tools and software.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Indium Metal Forecast—Supply Chain Strong, Demand Continues to Grow

05/05/2020 | Donna Vareha-Walsh, Indium
Indium is a critical metal for the indium-tin oxide (ITO) market and other coating applications. Donna Vareha Walsh—director of sales and global supply chain and trade compliance at Indium Corporation—describes the plentiful global supply of indium and its recycling loop, examines indium’s history of price volatility and the market reactions from the recent Fanya Metal Exchange auction, and provides an overview of indium supply and demand drivers, as well as the impact of recycling efforts.
