Inline cleaning machines utilizing aqueous engineered cleaning fluids represent the process of choice for cleaning high I/O flip-chip assemblies. As the bump pitch becomes tighter, standard inline cleaner designs have not been able to clean adequately under array packages because of the reduced geometries. Bigger pumps and higher pressures are the obvious solution, but create their own set of problems like parts damage and material handling. The designed experiment will test the use of vectored jets to allow a higher differential pressure across the IC. The research hypothesis infers that vectored jets will improve fluid penetration resulting in higher throughput. A transparent flip chip mock-up will be utilized to provide visual understanding of cleaning differences. Standard no-clean low residue and water soluble flux joining materials will be evaluated.
