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.
