Abstract:

Intermetallic compound (IMC) growth is being studied in earnest in this past decade because of its significant effect the solder joint reliability. It appears that from numerous investigations conducted, excessive growth of IMC could lead to solder joint failure. Leading to this, many attempts has been made to determine the actual IMC thickness. However, precise and true representation of the growth in the actual 3D phenomenon from 2D cross-section investigations has remained unclear.

This paper will focus on the measuring the IMC thickness using 3D surface profilometer (Alicona Focus G4). Lead free solder, Sn3.0Ag0.5Cu (SAC305) was soldered onto copper printed circuit board (Cu PCB). The samples were then subjected to thermal cycle (TC) storage process with temperature range from 0 °C to 100 °C for 200 cycles and up to 1000 cycles were completed....
