Indium Corporation Introduces New Ball-Attach Flux


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation has released a new ball-attach flux, WS-829, designed for printing and pin transfer applications for the smallest sphere and high-density applications, including LED die-attach.

WS-829 is a water-soluble, halogen-free flux that can be used for ball-attach on substrate in a standard ball-grid array (BGA) manufacturing process (especially for the smallest sphere applications < 0.25mm) as well as wafer-/panel-level packaging (WLP/PLP).

WS-829 features:

  • Best-in-class flux residue cleanability when using only DI water; it also effectively cleans off contamination or pad oxidation from processes before ball mount
  • High tackiness, which holds event the smallest solder spheres and LED die in place, and reduces missing balls or die skew defects
  • A formulation that ensures consistent flux definition over long periods of time with minimal slump

Indium Corporation offers a robust portfolio of flux products designed for new or emerging industry challenges. To learn more about Indium Corporation’s fluxes, visit www.indium.com/ball-attach.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.

Today, optical inspection systems are the preferred solution for in-line quality control in the SMT industry. Systems such as solder paste inspection (SPI) or automated optical inspection (AOI) systems for pre- and post-reflow are almost standard in every production facility.
