YINCAE Releases First Commercially Available Diamond Filled Underfill

Reading time ( words)

YINCAE has developed SMT 158D8 a high thermal conductive underfill that is capillary and fast flowing, and an easy reworkable liquid epoxy.

SMT 158D8 is the world’s first (and only) commercially available diamond filled underfill. SMT 158D8 has a thermal conductivity of >6 W/mK, can flow into small gaps easily with no phase separation, high salt-moisture resistance, and excellent adhesion. Furthermore, the performance of the SMT 158D8 drop test has been improved by two orders of magnitude compared with that with the use of solder paste. The highlight of the SMT 158D8 is its ability to lower CPU (POP) temperatures by 10 °C.

This material can be used as a underfill for flip chip, chip scale package, ball grid array devices, package on package, and land grid array application. It is also suitable for bare chip protection in a variety of advanced packages such as memory cards, chip carriers, hybrid circuits and multichip modules. It is designed for high production and an environment where process speed and thermal dissipation are key concerns.

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.

Practical Verification of Void Reduction Method for BTC Using Exposed Via-in-pad

12/16/2019 | Alfredo Garcia, et al, Sanmina and Nokia
The method explored in this article regards the use of exposed via-in-pad. A dedicated test vehicle was designed for two types of QFN components. The main variables accounted for were the component size, number of exposed vias in the thermal pad, via pitch, via size, and solder paste coverage. The responses sought in this experiment include a thermal pad void level and solder wicking down the via barrel with resulting solder protrusion on the opposite side of the PCB.

Optimizing Solder Paste Volume for Low-Temperature Reflow of BGA Packages

07/22/2019 | Keith Sweatman, Nihon Superior Co. Ltd
In this article, Keith Sweatman explains how the volume of low-melting-point alloy paste—which delivers the optimum proportion of retained ball alloy for a particular reflow temperature—can be determined by reference to the phase diagrams of the ball and paste alloys.
