Workshop A : ACHIEVING HIGH RELIABILITY OF SOLDER JOINTS (4 AUGUST 2020)

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

For electronic devices, solder joints often are the weakest link in terms of reliability. The failure of solder joints may be caused by temperature, stress, electrical current, or chemical reactions, and may occur at level one and level two, depending on the device type and application conditions. In this course, the Part 1 will address the electromigration issue at die attach level for high power devices, and the Part 2 will address the solder joint behavior based on fundamental material properties and the failure modes will be introduced, with emphasis on lead-free solder joints.
