TopLine Awarded US Patent for CCGA Lead Free Solder Columns


Reading time ( words)

TopLine Corporation, a provider of electronic components, services, and component engineering technology, has been granted US patent 10,937,752 for Lead Free Solder Columns for Column Grid Array Substrates. TopLine holds 7 patents in the field of Column Grid Arrays, also known as CCGA.

TopLine has employed substantial engineering resources in recent years to develop novel approaches to manufacturability and reliability of CCGA components that are usable with Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) and Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) Packages. CCGA packages are assembled with solder column terminations that reduce stress in harsh environments, stresses resulting from wide temperature swings when mounting materials having different coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE) onto Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs).

Martin Hart, CEO, stated, “Our unique lead-free solder column is designed with an inner copper core that  prevents collapse of the semiconductor chip that also serves as a heat-sink to conduct heat from the underside of the CCGA package, resulting in enhanced reliability. The novel Pb-Free column structure conforms to RoHS directives that assure Restriction of Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment. We’re pleased to have been awarded this patent.”

SMTA Europe Solder Finish Webinar Addresses Defects Causes and Cures

12/14/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
“What is your most common PCB problem?” A survey conducted by Bob Willis had revealed finish solderability to be the predominant contender, and it was clear that the choice of solderable finish applied to surface mount boards could have a significant effect on the assembly yield and cost of the final circuit. SMTA Europe organised an informative and enlightening webinar this month entitled “Guide to PCB Solder Finishes—Process Defects Causes and Cures,” with soldering specialist Bob Willis as presenter.

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

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.
