PCB Warpage Characterization and Minimization End-of-Project Webinar: May 13−14, 2020

The use of thinner components and thinner multi-up panel PCBs (≤ 40 mils) has exacerbated PCB warpage issues in SMT assembly which, in turn, can negatively impact PCB assembly yield. 

iNEMI’s PCB Warpage Characterization and Minimization project studied key design and fabrication factors for thin PCBs to determine the impact on warpage. The project analyzed the effects of:

  • PCB post processing (bake & no bake PCB)
  • Panel locations (corner & center)
  • PCB thicknesses (0.8 mm & 0.6 mm)
  • Material properties (mid Tg and high Tg)
  • PCB fabrication processing  

The resulting PCB warpage was evaluated using high temperature warpage measurement metrology to evaluate the ball grid arrays (BGA) and panel area PCB coplanarity. The project team will report on the analysis of the results and recommendations.

How Changing Cleaning Technologies Affect Reliability

07/22/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
At the recent IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit, Andy Shaughnessy spoke with Michael Konrad, founder and president of Aqueous Technologies and a speaker and panelist at the event in Baltimore, Maryland. They discussed Konrad’s presentation and the recent proliferation of cleaning, from solely high-reliability products to Class 1 consumer products.

Barbara Bracken Discusses ICAPE's New Facility

05/23/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
During the recent SMTA Atlanta show, Andy Shaughnessy sat down for an interview with Barbara Bracken, sales manager for Texas for the ICAPE Group. Barbara explained why ICAPE is much more than a PCB broker; the company now owns its own assembly facility in the U.S. and can assembly boards in the U.S. or China.

TTM on Flex and Rigid-flex PCB Challenges

03/20/2019 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
One of the biggest bareboard manufacturers in the world, TTM Technologies has seen a recent surge in flex and rigid-flex demands from their customers. In this interview, Clay Zha, Vice President of Technology Solutions of TTM’s Mobility business unit, and VP of Corporate Marketing Winnie Ng discuss the differences in manufacturing flex versus traditional PCBs, and the increasing need for rigid-flex HDI boards.
