ZESTRON to Present on Defluxing Ultra-Fine Pitch Die on CoWs at IPC APEX 2023

Reading time ( words)

ZESTRON, a leading global provider of high-precision cleaning products, services, and training solutions in the electronics manufacturing and semiconductor industries, is pleased to announce that ZESTRON’s Senior Application Engineer, Ravi Parthasarathy will be presenting, “Process Considerations for Defluxing Ultra-Fine Pitch Die on CoWs”, at IPC APEX 2023 taking place in San Diego, California.

CoW (Chip on Wafer) is the next generation of CoS (Chip on Substrate) that first combines the chips to the interposer, adds wafer-level molding, and finally, they are connected to the flip chip (FC) substrate. This technology makes a better physical structure for accommodating very large die and larger overall interposer dimensions.

A continuation from the technical paper presented at APEX 2022 and titled “Defluxing of Copper Pillar Bumped Flip Chips,” this new study concentrates on cleaning under the next level of ultra-fine pitch CoW devices down to less than 25μm bump pitch and bump counts of more than 150K. This study focuses on the impact of wash temperatures and conveyor belt speed utilizing analytical/functional testing, including Visual Inspection, FTIR with color mapping, and SEM/EDX to assess cleanliness.

If you’ve ever experienced an electric car launching from a dead stop, felt the torque and acceleration that a motor made of magnets and copper coils can deliver over a combustion engine, then you’ll have a sense for how this year’s SMTAI took off—both literally and figuratively.

New Growth Opportunities Worldwide for BTU

10/26/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
It’s not just automotive and medical devices for which capital equipment manufacturers like BTU International are finding a market. It’s also not just domestic. Bob Bouchard says his company has seen an uptick in sales after the pandemic into more “purpose-built” equipment with sophisticated requirements and very tight process control. It’s meant an increase in sales staff as well. It’s encouraging news ahead of BTU International’s exhibit at SMTA International next week.

Optimizing Test Engineering Practices for High-Mix Electronics Manufacturing

08/15/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
For PCB and assembly manufacturers, test engineering has become a critical factor in enhancing the profitability of new product introductions (NPIs). Given the trend toward high-mix, low-volume production, the journey from design data to an automated PCB testing program must be quicker and more efficient than ever before. In this article, we will discuss how to optimize the efficiency of the test engineering process in accordance with these new market realities.
