Kyzen Corporation announces that Debbie Carboni will present “Removal of Flux Residues from Highly Dense Assemblies” at IMAPS NE 40th Symposium & Expo on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Boxborough, MA. From a cleanability perspective, package on package (PoP), flip-chip, bottom termination component (BTC) selection, solder mask definition, placement and layout influence the clearance gaps. The purpose of this research is to use a BTC test vehicle for studying factors related to the cleaning process. The designed experiment will present findings for removing flux residues under BTCs.
From a cleaning perspective, many designers have poor insight into factors that ensure a cleanable design. Solder paste selection, reflow conditions, component placement, component clearance (standoff), cleaning agents and cleaning equipment are important factors. Collaboration between process engineers, assembly designers, solder materials, cleaning agent and cleaning equipment experts can improve integration of the circuit design and assembly. Package design plays an important role when cleaning is required. Density of components, component layout, thermal heat requirements and standoff height/clearance are key considerations.
Debbie Carboni joined Kyzen in 2007 as a Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager. A 15-year veteran of the precision cleaning industry, Debbie’s primary expertise is in the cleaning sector of the electronics industry.
