Then, we studied the soldering properties of CSP solder joints using Sn-8Zn-3Bi solder with a melting point of 197 °C. We determined how the soldering conditions affected the solder joint properties by analyzing microstructure and mechanical properties. We found that void formation was suppressed by a temperature profile that provided incompletely melting of solder-balls of CSPs.
And we also found that the joint strength reflowed at 230°C failured at a significantly short life in a bending fatigue test, on the other hand, the joints reflowed at 210°C had a longer fatigue life both in as-reflowed condition and high temperature exposure test. A Au-Zn layer formed between the Cu-Zn layer and the Ni pad in joints is considered to improve the joint strength.
Key words: lead-free solder, CSP, Sn-Zn-Bi solder, Sn-Ag-Cu solder-ball, microstructurer.
