    Introduction:
    This training course is aimed at providing an understanding of Surface Mount Technology (SMT) and advanced packaging principles, practice, processes, equipment and design. This course will also include discussions on process parameters, process characteristics, identifying and correcting defects. This course will provide the participants with a strong foundation needed for implementing the SMT process and supporting printed circuit board design and assembly. The knowledge gained from this training will help attendees enhance product development and manufacturing skills. This course material is a subset of a week long course offered for professional development at RIT.

    Who should attend:
    Those involved in printed board design, bare board fabrication, SMT assembly, quality control, materials purchasing and reliability testing. Essentially anyone who is interested in better understanding the interplay of manufacturing process and materials.

    Facility Tour Included:
    Zentech is offering a tour of their facility as part of this course. Zentech is an ITAR facility, so only US citizens will be admitted.

    About This Course:
    The objective of this course is to identify the technical issues in Through hole, SMT, tin-lead, Lead Free BGA and fine pitch technology design and manufacturing that must be resolved for an effective implementation of mixed assembly electronics products. After a brief overview of SMT components and advanced packaging, the course provides details of all the SMT manufacturing processes including paste application, lead free soldering, Selective Soldering, and repair. The course concludes by providing examples of common defects and their root causes.

    How You Will Benefit: After completing this course you will be able to

  • Get a good understanding of SMT, its benefits and limitations
  • Select appropriate SMT components, materials, processes, and equipment
  • Get an overview of BGA, CSP, PoP
  • Troubleshoot SMT and Lead free problems in manufacturing
  • Understand metallurgy of lead free solder to enable selection of appropriate lead free solder alloys, soldering and rework processes and equipment


    Topics Covered:

  • Brief Overview of SMT and Lead Free including SMT components, Advanced Packaging including, BGA, BTC, Flip Chip and PoP
  • Solder paste and its application and Soldering (Wave and Reflow) for tin-lead and Lead Free
  • Flux and Cleaning and No Clean
  • Examples of Defects and their root causes
  • Repair


    Who should attend:
    Anyone in process, quality, manufacturing, design, purchasing and management who wants to get a good understanding of SMT, Lead Free, Fine pitch, and BGA manufacturing issues for building assemblies in-house or at a subcontractor will benefit from this course.
