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.

The Brave New World of the CTO

09/21/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this conversation with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, Alex Stepinski shares his insight on how to automate the PCB fab. Spoiler alert: It doesn’t start with new equipment and panel handlers; it’s much more strategic than that. Alex details the new role of a chief technology officer in the 21st century and cautions that we don’t have nearly enough of them in the industry. The focus, he says, should be on statements of work rather than so much on skilled labor. He also hopes this is just the beginning of more important conversations like these.

Driving Down Cost with Process Engineering

04/20/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Nolan Johnson, Barry Matties, and Happy Holden speak with Matt Mack, process engineer at ICM Controls. Matt shares a day in the life of a process engineer, along with how he approaches continuous improvement and planning for the future on the floor.

Benchmarking With Your Suppliers: What to Know About Solder Mask

02/16/2021 | Bob MacRae, Taiyo America
Everyone wants a smooth-running solder mask process with high productivity and minimal rejects, but to achieve this you really need a firm understanding of what your current process is capable of, what its limitations are, and what you want to improve. Process capability benchmarking is a great way to identify and implement improvements within your process.
