Oven Reflow and X-Ray Best Practices, for Preprogrammed Flash Memories
Speaker: Dave Rohona, Data I/O Corporation 

Abstract: Today’s modern luxury cars are governed by around one hundred million lines of code, and that number is likely to soar for connected and autonomous cars.  According to Neil Shah, partner and  research director, Counterpoint Research, “Storage is one of the fastest growing semiconductor applications in a connected autonomous car. The advanced in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), AI, and sensor driven autonomous driving systems generate large amounts of data that need to be processed and stored locally at the edge. The average capacity of storage required per vehicle is expected to balloon beyond 2TB by 2022.” 

To support this explosive growth in software and data, automotive manufacturers are transitioning their storage architecture from the eMMC interface to Universal Flash Storage (UFS) and PCI express (PCIe/NVMe) to take advantage of the higher capacity, power efficiency, and higher performance that these memory technologies have to offer.  Preprogramming is the preferred method used in automotive today, delivering the lowest total cost of programming.

Preprogrammed flash memories processed through oven reflow and X-ray inspection require production line managers follow recommended best practices. This presentation will discuss the impact of thermal heat and dose radiation on preprogrammed Flash Memories along with Data I/O’s recommended best practices to ensure data retention post oven reflow and X-ray.

Bio: Dave Rohona, Senior Product Marketing Manager, brings over 36 years of expertise in customer applications, system service, product marketing and semiconductor relations in the device programming industry. During his tenure, Dave has developed a deep understanding and technical knowledge of device programming technologies and customer’s manufacturing applications and processes. Dave has a degree in Business finance and has attended the Stanford AeA Executive Institute’s, Technology Management program.

Failure Analysis – Using Ion Chromatography and Ion Chromatography Mass Spec (IC/MS)
Speaker: Terry Monson, Foresite

Abstract: Since the 1980s the electronics industry has utilized ion chromatography (IC) analysis to understand the relationship of ions, and some organics, to product reliability.  From component and board fabrication, to electronic assemblies and their end-use environment, IC analysis has been the de facto method for evaluating ionic cleanliness of electronic hardware.  Typical ions accounted for have included chloride, bromide, nitrate, sulfate, weak-organic acid (WOA), sodium and ammonium. Environmental and other concerns have driven the industry to adopt myriad flux formulations, which has created a need to further differentiate weak-organic acids beyond what a typical IC system can provide.

By utilizing an Ion Chromatography/Mass Spectroscopy (IC/MS) system optimized for organic separation, we can use the same column technology for the typical suite of anion/organic species, then run the sample through a quad-pole mass spectrometer which provides the molecular weight assessment of residues for over two dozen channels. This capability is critical to our failure analysis work at Foresite, as it allows for identification of specific organic acids and flux activators. This information can aid in identifying specific residue sources (e.g. board fabrication, SMT paste flux, waver solder liquid flux, hand solder flux or a completely different flux pen, or bottle or paste flux.)

Key Words:  Ion Chromatography, IC/MS, chloride, sulfate, weak organic acid, spot extraction.

Bio: Owner and founder of Foresite Inc. a forensics laboratory for electronic assemblies and systems. Terry has 27 years of experience developing new techniques to better understand fabrication and assembly cleanliness issues and their impact on field performance. Prior to founding Foresite, Terry was employed with Delco Electronics where he applied ion chromatography analysis techniques to wafers, plating samples, and PCB / PCBAs, an industry first. He presented the new analysis techniques to the industry at IPC Expo 1990 in San Diego. As Senior Consultant, Terry directs a team of 20 staff members with four lead investigators supporting client.

Identifying Defects on BTC Assemblies with X-Ray Analysis; 

Speaker: Dr. Bill Cardoso, Creative Electron, Inc.

The use of x-ray inspection in the electronics industry has gained wide adoption in the past 20 years, driven mainly by the development and use of bottom terminated components (BTC). The use of ball grid arrays (BGA), for example, allowed the development of standards and guidelines that dictate the maximum void size in each ball. In consequence, x-ray machine manufacturers developed solutions that address these requirements to become an integral part of the quality assurance function of modern electronic manufacturers.

However, as new x-ray technologies are introduced – from new algorithms to new hardware – users are faced with a growing range of options to choose from. Users need a solid technical background to understand these options to make an educated decision when acquiring x-ray inspection capabilities. For example, what level of resolution is necessary for a specific application? Is an open tube or sealed source the most appropriate technology to deploy?

The goal of this presentation is to give the audience the tools needed to avoid making mistakes when acquiring x-ray inspection capabilities. Instead of focusing on the x-ray technology per se, this work starts from the application needs of the electronic industry and ties it back to the available technology offerings available in the market today. The goal is to set the record straight and clearly define critical concepts in x-ray inspection. The different x-ray modalities, 2D, 2.5D, and 3D x-ray inspection will be explained in details at the user level – no math involved. Most importantly, this presentation will cover when each modality must be utilized for a successful quality assurance program. A rich set of images and videos will be used to illustrate the advantages and disadvantages of each x-ray inspection modality.

Optimization of the Reflow Process to Minimize Voiding; 

Speaker: MB Allen, KIC

Void reduction is a significant concern and controversial topic in electronic assembly.  Voiding impacts electrical, thermal, and mechanical performance.  There are many variables such as substrates, components, solder paste, acceptable void levels and of course the reflow profile. This discussion will focus on the optimization of the reflow profile as one of the solutions for the reduction of voiding.
 

2:30pm

New X-Ray Technologies for Enhanced Void Investigation; 

Speaker: Keith Bryant, Keith Bryant Consultancy

There are many forward thinking companies who invest time, effort and cost into up front work to fix snags which would lead to poor yield during production, this paper outlines the efforts of a company who take this thinking further.

With increasing pressure on cost reduction within our industry, companies are looking ever more closely at their manufacturing process. In order to remain globally competitive and even to succeed in their local market every dollar saved here helps the bottom line. However in many areas there is a danger that lower price equals lower quality and therefore actually higher costs in the end.

The approach here involves spending a little more money than normal at the start of project but less than hundreds of dollars and the results show savings of many times more than this outlay. However it is acknowledged that this does take a little more time to get the job onto the shop floor.

The key to this methodology is that it needs the time and effort of a skilled team and time on a production line before the job is started. But as the paper shows it really does improve yield, reduce cost, save the potential issues around repair and gives better reliability.

In essence the results of the printing process are analyzed, after the components are placed, using x-ray and these results compared to the results after reflow soldering. The resultant pre reflow solder paste shapes are impossible to see with the naked eye or by lifting the components, as the paste would not release evenly. This allows the engineer to determine how differences in printed paste shape and volume react when components are placed on them and how ultimately this affects product quality.

Post reflow problems including mid chip solder balls were found to be common faults, as were issues under BGA’s including insufficient solder and shorts.

The product is run on a “real line” and the results evaluated. Improvements are then made to the stencil design and other key process parameters to ensure that when in production the board is producing acceptable yields.

PART I - Why Are We Cleaning No-Clean?

Speaker: Mike Konrad, Aqueous Technologies

No-Clean flux, once a reliable alternative to cleaning is quickly becoming the most common type of flux being removed. This presentation will discuss the reasons so many assemblers have implemented a cleaning protocol for assemblies reflowed with no-clean flux. While many assemblies maintain a high tolerance for post-reflow residues and do not benefit from a cleaning process, many others experience residue-related failures. This presentation will outline factors that affect residue tolerance and methods to predict an assembly’s residue tolerance.

X-Ray Inspection Advances for BGA's and Bottom Terminated Components

Speaker: Keith Bryant, Keith Bryant Consultancy

The presence of voids within the interfacial layers of electronics, either onto the board or within the device, has always been of concern to those charged with making good product. Specifically, voiding may impact on long, and short, term joint strength and reliability as well as effect the thermal conductivity which would otherwise allow heat to be safely dissipated away from key areas. Today, these issues become increasingly more important as more electronics need to withstand harsher operating environments and devices themselves need to be able to handle greater power. Thermal conductivity of the finished assembly is also affected by design and by bare board manufacture, these areas will also be explored, excessive voiding can be traced back to pad layout and even solder resist design and type.
X-ray inspection has long been used to non-destructively probe for these issues, both in R&D and in production. This often enables the root cause of issues to be quickly investigated without the need to cut or destroy the sample, an act which may otherwise potentially mask the real situation. The presence, quantity and location of voids can be clearly seen and measured in the X-ray results. This paper will explain the recent developments that have been made in 2D, 2.5D and 3D X-ray inspection and how they can be applied to investigating voiding. The developments to be discussed will include the use of limited angle computer tomography (CT), sometimes also called laminography, as well as the use of new 'full CT' algorithms, such as helical CT, which improve the clarity of the necessary analysis and clearly locate the source of potential voiding and joint / interfacial problems. BTC's will be used as examples of how these techniques are needed to provide the necessary analysis to clearly locate the source of potential voiding problems.

Understanding Reliability of Low Temperatures Solders and New Developments in Low Temperature Solder Materials
Speaker: Kim Flanagan, Indium Corporation 

From wearable electronics to rework processes, the use of low-temperature solder is expanding in the PCBA industry. Low-temperature solders are being used to minimize the heat input to a PCBA, thereby reducing high energy costs and the risk for board and component warpage. Furthermore, low-temperature solders can be advantageous for applications where thermally sensitive components are present as well as step soldering applications. Up until recently, eutectic Bi-Sn and Bi-Sn-Ag alloys have been the primary low-temperature solders of choice, mostly due to their cost efficiency when compared to other low-temperature solders. However, with a renewed focus on solder joint reliability, the brittle nature of these Bi-Sn alloys has caused concern for this reliability requirement specifically for applications that will experience drop shock environments. As a result, many efforts have gone into researching and developing other low-temperature solder options to address the reliability concerns and environmental limitations of Bi-Sn alloys. These advancements include In-containing alloys and also a new, low-temperature alloy, Durafuse™ LT.

Reliability of Robotics for Electronic Manufacturing 
Speaker: Bubba Powers, Weller Professional Tools

Reliability of electrical or electronic soldering has always been paramount for the success of long-term market share and presence for electronics manufacturers. Process control is the key to ensuring manufacturers produce high quality and reliable products within their respective fields. In today’s environment of automation and high tech electronic controls, high reliability in electronics manufacturing is now more critical than ever before. 
Automation is one approach to achieving the pinnacle of high reliability in electronics manufacturing, as repeatability and traceability are two keys to maintaining optimum process control. However, it is the responsibility of every employee to maintain and control these processes whether they are automated or manual. 
In a world of trending automation and artificial intelligence in all of our surroundings, one slight miss can mean the difference in the success or failure of any electronic product. A failure in the manufacturing process could be insignificant if it is a cell phone, a play station or a television, but it can be of major consequence if it affects the electronics in the car that your family is in, the flight that your spouse is on or the technology that your military member is utilizing.
Join us for an overview of the process of automation in the soldering workplace and a discussion of what factors are just as critical for high reliability electronics regardless of whether you are working with a manual or an automated manufacturing environment.

Contamination, Harsh Environments, and a New IPC Cleanliness Testing Standard - The Perfect Storm of Change
Speaker: Mike Konrad, Aqueous Technologies 

Abstract: Why Are We Cleaning No-Clean? No-Clean flux, once a reliable alternative to cleaning is quickly becoming the most common type of flux being removed. This presentation will discuss the reasons so many assemblers have implemented a cleaning protocol for assemblies reflowed with no-clean flux. While many assemblies maintain a high tolerance for post-reflow residues and do not benefit from a cleaning process, many others experience residue-related failures. This presentation will outline factors that affect residue tolerance and methods to predict an assembly’s residue tolerance.

Bio: Mike Konrad is an industry expert on the removal of contamination from circuit assemblies. Mike has been part of the electronic assembly cleaning industry for the past 34 years. Mike has designed several automated cleaning and cleanliness testing machines, has published technical articles on the subject of cleaning and cleanliness assessment and has been a member of Editorial Boards for several industry publications.

Mike served on the US Navy’s EMPF manufacturer’s committee and is a speaker at industry events and technical workshops worldwide. Mike was honored with Distinguished Speaker status from the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA). He is the founder of Aqueous Technologies, a manufacturer of automated cleaning and cleanliness testing systems designed for the electronic assembly industry and has served as its CEO/CTO since 1992.
