iNEMI's End-of-Project Webinar: 1st Level Interconnect Void Characterization Project, Phase 2

Reading time ( words)

Phase 2 of the 1st Level Interconnect Void Characterization project focused on understanding the potentially adverse impact that voids in first level interconnect materials have on the reliability of the electrical interconnect. The formation of small voids can occur in solder-based flip chip joints during the assembly process. This can be a concern for applications that involve high electrical and thermal flux across flip chip packages because the presence of a void can accelerate complete open failure due to electromigration.

The project team conducted experiments to understand the relationship between voids and joint reliability (electrical and mechanical) and worked on recommendations for acceptable voiding characteristics for flip chip interconnects. This end-of-project webinar will present the reliability test results for first level interconnection — performed by electromigration, temperature cycle and thermal shock testing — and will include descriptions of the test packages, reliability test conditions, test data of cross-section images and EBSD data. 


This webinar is open to industry; advance registration is required, check iNEMI's website. Two webinars with the same content are scheduled — please join whichever one fits your schedule.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

01/21/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Next week, we’ll be in San Diego. In fact, I fly down tomorrow morning to start preparations, along with most of the I-Connect007 team. The weather forecast says to expect sunny, with the occasional cloud, all week, with daytime temperatures around 70 degrees. That’ll be nice, as I’m sure COVID-related social distancing guidelines will encourage us to socialize outside as much as is feasible.

Test and Inspection: Competitive Advantage and Cost of Doing Business

In this interview, Charlie Capers of Zentech breaks down the changing requirements he’s seeing in test and inspection in the industry, and the growing importance of investing in testing for the future growth and success of your company. According to Capers, "When you collect statistics on defects, you will start to see a trend that says, for example, we’ve got a lot of shorts and opens, meaning that our solder paste process is not tight. If you’re collecting statistics and really studying them, you will see trends in your processes."

Test and Inspection: Far Beyond Opens and Shorts

12/07/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Gardien Vice President Todd Kolmodin talks about test and inspection market drivers from his perspective as a test service provider. Andy Shaughnessy and Happy Holden go down the “microvia rabbit hole” with Todd, as well as explore how OEM design requirements are driving test and inspection functionality and processes. When board layer counts and feature densities force longer test times, the tradeoffs to profitability for manufacturers become time and accuracy. Minimizing time while maximizing accuracy calls for new methods, which Kolmodin explains.
