Dr. Jennie Hwang to Address Solder Joint Reliability at SMTAI 2019


Reading time ( words)

Solder joint reliability plays a critical role in the reliability of the entire spectrum of end-use electronic products from consumer to industrial, from computing to IoT, from medical to military applications. In lead-free electronics, solder joint reliability becomes increasingly important to the manufacture and performance of the chip level, package level and board level interconnections. Understanding the essential factors behind solder joint reliability is a necessity to designing and manufacturing reliable products.

On Monday, September 23, Dr Jennie S. Hwang leverages her decades of comprehensive real-world experiences and deep knowledge, having solved most challenging reliability problems, to address solder joint reliability by integrating scientific fundamentals with practical requirements. Join your industry colleagues to hear the true authority in solder joint reliability at SMTA International. Dr. Hwang will discuss relevant and crucial aspects of solder joint reliability at PDC 09 – “Solder Joint Reliability - Principles and Applications.” Attendees are encouraged to bring their own selected systems for deliberation.

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.
