ZESTRON, the globally leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services and training solutions in the electronics manufacturing and semiconductor industries, is pleased to announce that Ravi Parthasarathy, Senior Process Engineer, ZESTRON, will present “Impact of Cleaning Technologies on Lead Frame Packages: The Difference in Wire Bond Yields” at IMAPS’s Advances in Semiconductor Packaging Exhibition on September 24th.

Leadframe packages are widely used for semiconductor device fabrication.  Typically, the interconnections between an integrated circuit (IC) and the metal leads are made through the process of die attach and wire bonding. For die attach processes, the standard materials used are epoxy, adhesive or solder paste. Prior to wire bonding and molding processes, it is critical to remove post-solder flux residues in order to maximize overall yield. For companies that are manufacturing semiconductor devices, it is common to produce millions of units per day. As a result, incremental improvement in wire bond yield by a fraction of a percent can significantly impact production efficiency and the final product cost model.

This presentation reviews a design of experiment that was developed to improve a semicon manufacturer’s cleaning process and the resulting wire bond yield.

IMAPS’s Advances in Semiconductor Packaging will be held at SUNY Polytechnic Institute on Thursday, September 24th from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  For more information on ZESTRON’s product lines, services, and learning opportunities, please visit our booth.

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.
