Tolerance Mistaken: Impacts of not Properly Addressing Limitations of Material, Industry Standards and Assembly Process Limiations

Speaker: Dale Lee, Plexus Corporation

Electronic assemblies today are smaller, lighter with increased functionality per unit area and/or volume. The rate of new technology adoption is increasing through developing ever smaller packages with finer lead spacing and substrates with finer lines and spaces. However, design methods, industry standards, materials and manufacturing processes utilized during the product development and production process have not progressed to meet these new demands and thus many of the tolerance margins that were considered insignificant and acceptable in the past are now critical to high yield, reliable products. This presentation will highlight issues with today’s electronic designs and impacts when material limitations, industry standards and assembly tolerances are not adequately addressed during design, PCB fabrication, assembly and test.

Preparing Soldering Materials for 5G Environment

Speaker: Ning-Cheng Lee, Indium Corporation

5G is coming. This is based on the market need and anticipation. The requirement coming with 5G is also the need of upgrading assembly materials to cope with the vast increase in the speed of electronic signal as well as the demand on reliability. In this talk, the desired features and directions of soldering materials will be presented, including both flux features and solder alloy features.

2:00pm - 2:45pm

Computed Tomography (CT) X-Ray Analysis for Failure Analysis of Electronics

Speaker: Stephen Schoppe, Process Sciences, Inc.

Stephen Schoppe will deliver a presentation concerning the use of computed tomography (CT) X-ray for failure analysis of electronic assemblies and components. The presentation will cover when CT X-ray is an appropriate method to be used. It will discuss what types of features and defects can be discerned. Multiple case studies in failure analysis will be reviewed. These will include locating fractures in solder joints and defects in buried circuit board vias. This presentation will be applicable for manufacturers and developers of all variety of electronic products. Some details concerning the features of the equipment will be discussed so anyone planning to purchase CT equipment should find the presentation useful.
