Jigar Patel, Senior Process Engineer at ZESTRON, the worldwide leading provider of high precision cleaning products and services for the electronics manufacturing industry, will present “Is Cleaning Critical to PoP Assemblies?” at the SMTA’s Wisconsin/Great Lakes Expo & Tech Forum held at the Wyndham Milwaukee Airport Hotel & Convention Center on Tuesday, November 8, 2011. Additionally, ZESTRON will host a tabletop display featuring the company’s latest cleaning process solutions and educational opportunities. Show hours are from 9:45 am to 3:30 pm.
Package on package (PoP) assemblies are widely growing in use for applications that require small footprint technology. Typically, this integrated circuit design stacks and integrates logic and memory packages, thereby increasing board density and substantially expanding functionality within the same footprint of a single BGA. As a result, PoP’s have become an ideal component selection for products such as advanced mobile platforms and digital cameras.
Cleaning is a critical process within the electronics manufacturing industry. Effective cleaning improves product reliability by ensuring optimal surface resistance and preventing current leakage that can lead to PCB failure. This paper will address the cleanliness level of PoP assemblies including underneath PoP components and in between packages. Expected results will empirically confirm the effectiveness of cleaning technologies for this rapidly evolving technology.
