Holtzer The Discrepancy Between Ionic Contamination and SIR Testing in Predicting Electrical Reliability
Mitch Holtzer, Alpha Assembly Solutions

Controlled humidity and temperature controlled surface insulation resistance (SIR) measurements of flux covered test vehicles, subject to a direct current (D.C.) bias voltage are recognized by a number of global standards organizations as the preferred method to determine if no clean solder paste and wave soldering flux residues are suitable for reliable electronic assemblies. The Association Connecting Electronics Industries (IPC), Japanese Industry Standard (JIS), Deutsches Institut fur Normung (DIN) and International Electrical Commission (IEC) all have industry reviewed standards using similar variations of this measurement.

Ionic contamination testing is recognized by the IPC as a standard for evaluating the cleanliness of assemblies that have subjected to a cleaning process. IPC J-STD001F calls for a cleanliness level of < 1.56 µg/cm² NaCl equivalent after the cleaning processes. Historically, this threshold originated from the cleanliness specifications of military and aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). These applications used rosin-based wave soldering fluxes, such as RMA’s, and cleaned with now presently banned fluorocarbon solvents. Many of these applications have subsequently implemented water soluble soldering processes. Several automotive and consumer electronic OEM’s still use this standard, to qualifying assemblies built with no-clean materials using mixed SMT and PTH assembly technologies.

IPC-TM-650 Method 2.3.25 contains standard test methods for extracting contaminants from circuit boards using heated isopropanol (IPA) / water mixtures. Test method 2.3.25 is commonly referred to as the ROSE (Resistivity of Solvent Extract) test. Previous work [1,2] has shown poor correlation between the presence of extractable, corrosive weak organic acids and results from IPC-TM-650 2.3.25 test results, partially due to the lack of solubility of materials found in no-clean fluxes, and the higher SIR values imparted by rosins and resins in modern no-clean soldering materials.

This study will compare the results from testing two solder pastes using the IPC-J-STD-004B IPC TM-650 2.6.3.7 surface insulation resistance test, and IPC TM-650 2.3.25 in an attempt to investigate the correlation of ROSE methods as predictors of electronic assembly electrical reliability.

    Carboni Video Analysis of Solder Paste Release From Stencils
    Debbie Carboni, KYZEN Corporation

    Solder paste release from the stencil is a critical factor in print quality, and ultimately, overall electronic product quality and reliability. To better understand release mechanics, an experiment was devised using a video microscope to capture the separation of the stencil from the PCB. The experiment incorporates different aperture area ratios, solder pastes, stencil nanocoatings and underwipe solvents to visualize their effects on paste release. This study builds on previous research that developed the test setup and recording methods, and incorporates some modifications to the original experimental configuration to improve image quality. The outputs of the experiments are videos that demonstrate the effects of solder paste formulation, solvent under wiping and nanocoating on paste release at different area ratios. The paper will discuss the observations from the videos, and the presentation will play the videos.

    Coyle Implementation of a Collaborative Industrial Consortia Program to Characterize the Thermal Fatigue Reliability of 3rd Generation Pb-Free Solder Alloys
    Richard Coyle, Ph.D., Nokia

    Significant innovations in Pb-free solder alloy compositions are being driven by volume manufacturing, field experiences, and evolving application requirements. Pb-free solder alloy development is focused on shortcomings of the first generation commercial, high Ag content, near-eutectic SAC alloys, as well as those of second generation lower Ag alloys. The search continues for alloys that can resist thermal fatigue damage in increasingly aggressive use environments, while providing acceptable performance under drop, shock and vibration loading conditions. In 2009, the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) launched the iNEMI Characterization of Pb-free Alloy Alternatives project to address the lack of information on the thermal fatigue performance of second generation Pb-free alloys. A comprehensive program based on thermal cycling and materials characterization of first and second generation commercial Pb-free solders was completed and the results were documented in a series of conference papers between 2012 and 2015. The project team continued to track alloy development as the thermal cycling testing progressed and in late 2014 began plans to extend the program to address the emerging 3rd generation Pb-free alloys. In May 2016 the iNEMI Alloy project and the Harsh Use Environment project sponsored by the High Density Package User Group (HDPUG) agreed to collaborate on a program to assess thermal cycling reliability of 3rd generation alloys.

    Third generation Pb-free solder alloys focus on two prominent development paths. In one case, alloys with Ag content lower than SAC305 are being developed to address needs for better drop/shock resistance, lower processing (melting) temperature, and lower cost. These alloys would be relevant for consumer applications and complex telecommunication applications requiring lower temperature assembly. In the other case, the high Ag content alloys are being modified with various major alloying additions to improve thermal fatigue performance under conditions of severe thermal cycling and increase resistance to damage from high strain rate mechanical loading. This paper describes the experimental program and alloy selection for evaluating the thermal cycling performance of 3rd generation alternative Pb-free solder alloys.

    Kunkle An Investigation into the Use of Nano Coated Stencils to Improve Solder Paste Printing with Small Stencil Aperture Area Ratios
    Bill Kunkle, MET Stencil

    Certain types of Nano coated stencils dramatically improve the transfer efficiency of solder paste during paste printing. These Nano coatings also refine the solder paste brick shape giving improved print definition. These two benefits combine to help the solder paste printing process produce an adequate amount of solder paste in the correct position on the circuit board pads. Stencil aperture area ratios from 0.66 down to 0.40 are commonly used and make paste printing a challenge.

    This paper presents data on small area ratio printing for component designs including 01005 (0402 metric) chip components and 0.3 mm and 0.4 mm pitch micro BGAs. The aperture area ratios studied range from 0.80 down to 0.30. The effects of Nano coatings are studied and compared to uncoated laser cut steel stencils. Two types of stencil materials are evaluated including fine grain and ultra fine grain steels. Stencil thicknesses are varied from 0.003 inch (75 µm) to 0.004 inch (100 µm) to 0.005 inch (125 µm). Lastly solder paste powder size is varied including IPC Types 3, 4 and 5. The effects of all of these variables are examined in relation to small aperture area ratios. Based on the results of the work a set of guidelines for stencil material, nano coating and solder paste type will be proposed in order to achieve good solder paste printing results.

    Teardowns of IoT and Wearables Devices
    Bill Cardoso, Ph.D., CEO, Creative Electron

    The impulse to break a new gadget to "see what's inside" is often the first sign someone will become an engineer. However, modern teardowns go far beyond pure curiosity: they provide us critical insights into the nature and construction of these devices. In this talk we will cover the teardown of several IoT and wearable devices, from the early Blackberries to the Apple Watch, to understand how the SMT industry has changed. These findings will also help us forecast where we are going as a community by discussing miniaturization and packaging, automation and labor force location, device features, and other important topics. These are key issues we need to address to keep U.S. SMT manufacturing relevant.

    2:00PM–2:30PM
    Avoiding Assembly Pitfalls at the Bare Board Design Stage
    Julie Ellis, Field Applications Engineer, TTM Technologies, Inc.

    A designer is faced with many challenges when planning their layout to achieve a balance of performance, quality and reliability versus cost. In this presentation, Julie will discuss common PCB-related assembly factors that contribute to cost and explore the trade-off considerations for design optimization. She will explore panel utilization, IPC Classes 2 and 3, design geometries and spacing, via protection, solder mask-defined pads and dams, and surface finishes. By thinking “Outside the Board,” assemblers can avoid pitfalls of unintended design consequences.
