Isothermal storage at high temperature was used to accelerate the aging of the assemblies. Aging Temperatures are 25oC, 50oC, and 75oC. Select data from aging times of 0-Months (No Aging, baseline), 6-Months, and 12-Months will be presented.
The assemblies were subjected thermal cycles of -40°C to +125°C on a 120 minute thermal profile. The test was subject to JEDEC JESD22-A104-B standard high and low temperature test in a single-zone environmental chamber to assess the solder joint performance.
The principal test components are 5 mm, 6mm, 13mm, 15mm, 17mm, 31mm, 35mm and 45 mm ball grid array (BGA) packages with solder ball pitch varying from 0.4 mm to 1.27 mm. Most of the BGA packages are plastic over-molded, while the 31mm and 45mm packages are Super-BGAs (SBGAs). Several surface mount resistors (SMRs) are also considered in order to understand the effect of solder paste composition on paste-only packages.
The primary solder for package attachment in this experiment is standard SAC305. Two solders designed for high-temperature reliability are also considered.
