Practical Components to Debut Advanced Technologies at IWLPC

Reading time ( words)

Practical Components will exhibit in booth 31 at the 2019 International Wafer-Level Packaging Conference (IWLPC) from October 22-23, 2019 at DoubleTree by Hilton in San Jose, California. Practical Components has added many new test wafers for miniaturized surface mount technology (SMT) to its array of dummy components, solder training kits and PCB evaluation kits.

New at this year's conference, Practical will introduce the MB6020-0102JY advanced test wafer, which is the most challenging wafer to date. This 8" wafer contains 3.0mm daisy chained chips that enable users to experiment and refine the process with pad pitches of 60/55/50/45/40/35/30/25/and 20μm on each chip.

Also new this year is the Practical IPC/WHMA-A-620 Space Addendum Wire Harness Cable Training Kit. IPC/WHMA-A-620C-S provides additional requirements to IPC/WHMA-A-620C to ensure the reliability of cable and wire harness assemblies that must survive the vibration and thermal cyclic environments getting to and operating in space. The IPC/WHMA-A-620C-S space addendum kit is to be used in conjunction with the Practical IPC/WHMA-A-620 kit.

Practical Components also will feature Dummy Amkor eWLP-Wafers .4-CuPd-DC-NB 8" wafer-embedded copper pads, Dummy Amkor CSPnl-Wafers .4-DC-SAC405 8" wafers with SAC405 ball daisy-chained 0.4 mm pitch, Amkor 0.3 mm CVBGA and Test Vehicle and Jabil Solder Paste Evaluation Board and Kit.

Practical has supplies for all of today's essential technologies as well the products needed for companies to advance their products, technologies, processes and understanding into the future. 

IWLPC brings together the semiconductor industry's most respected authorities addressing all aspects of Wafer-Level Packaging, 3D and Advanced Manufacturing and Test. Going into its 16th year the IWLPC is co-produced by Chip Scale Review, the leading international magazine addressing the semiconductor packaging industry and SMTA, the distinguished global association in electronic assembly and manufacturing.

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.
