iNEMI to Hold Webinar on Assessment of Lead-Free Solder Joint Reliability


Reading time ( words)

The accelerated testing typically done by industry can be very deceptive unless the results can be counted on to somehow reflect performance in service. As far as lead-free solder joints are concerned, this is more often an issue than commonly recognized. In general, reliability engineers need to know when “best in test” is unlikely to mean “best in service,” how large deviations may be, and which comparisons can be counted on to be conservative.

Binghamton University has recently completed a mechanistically justified model for the thermal fatigue of lead-free solder joints which allows for the generalization of observed trends. Even if not used to predict actual life in service, this model leads to recommendations for test protocols and guidelines.

iNEMI will be holding a research webinar on September 28, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. EDT (North America)/5:00 p.m. CEST (Central Europe), that will review some of the leading issues related to testing lead-free solder joints and discuss the Binghamton University model.

The webinar will be conducted by Dr. Peter Borgesen, Professor of Systems Science & Industrial Engineering and a member of the Materials Science program at Binghamton University. His research focuses on the assessment and optimization of reliability.

This webinar is open to members and non-members, and registration is free.  For more information and to register, click here.

04/25/2019 | Judy Warner
Guest Editor Judy Warner met with Alun Morgan, technology ambassador for Ventec International Group, to discuss topics addressed at the Automotive Executive Forum that took place at IPC APEX EXPO 2019. Morgan describes his presentation and findings centered around thermal management in automotive, specifically LEDs, as well as the unique set of growing thermal management challenges Tier 1 suppliers are now facing in the automotive sector.

Stacked Microvia Reliability: Ongoing Work and Upcoming IPC Conference

04/24/2019 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
One year ago, Happy Holden's review of the 2018 IPC High-Reliability Forum reported the presentation of J.R. Strickland and Jerry Magera, who described research at MSI Applied Technology into overcoming the risk of stacked microvia failures escaping standard quality assurance procedures. Their report provided a basis for the IPC white paper IPC-WP-023, which addressed reliability issues associated with stacked microvias and included data collected from several other printed circuit manufacturers.
