Electrical, Thermal, and Mechanical Reliability of Electronics Assembly


This video is for people who are manufacturing increasingly, miniaturized assemblies and facing thermal, and/or mechanical drop shock challenges. It will tell you about methods from improving the electrical, mechanical, and thermal reliability of electronics assemblies. Tim, I understand you presented a workshop
at the IMAPS 2015 Conference. Can you tell us a little bit about that? Absolutely. It was a workshop called, Improving
the Electrical, Mechanical and Thermal Reliability of Electronics Assemblies. The intent of the workshop was to provide
practical information to process engineers that they can use to directly impact the overall
reliability of their electronics. This was not intended to be a workshop where
there was detailed analysis of weibull plots or things like that, but rather, things that people can do within
their process, or material selection, that can have an immediate impact on the overall
reliability. What are some of the changes in the industry
that make this topic more important than ever? I think that, here’s a couple examples of
some consumer electronics that are used today. What you can see is, there’s a lot components
on the smaller devices. There’s a lot more functionality in these
devices than there were even just a couple years ago. The fact that the miniaturization to allow
more functionality in these devices, creates smaller solder joints. Those smaller solder joints are more susceptible to reliability damage. In addition, the processors on these boards are producing much more power because of the higher functionality. That means there’s a higher requirement for heat dissipation. Thermal management is even more critical today, than it’s ever been before. Because of these two challenges, the overall need to understand ways to improve the reliability of your assembly are more critical than they’ve
ever been. Tim, where can we find out more information
on this topic? If you go to indium.com, we have a lot of
technical information about both the electrical, mechanical, and
the thermal reliability of electronics, as well as, you can contact me directly at
[email protected], and I’m happy to discuss any of these topics in further detail. Excellent. Tim, thank you very, very much. Thank you.
