Dr. Mike Bixenman will deliver the talk and discussion about cleaning prior to conformal coating, as well as cleaning under low-profile components in PCB Assembly and microelectronics packaging.
Cleaning flux residues post-soldering has been a high-reliability criterion practiced by assemblers of military, aerospace, automotive, medical devices and other value offerings. Highly dense advanced packages reduce spacing between I/Os and standoff heights. The complexity of removing flux residue increases, while elevating the risk of white residue under low standoff components. To address this concern, matching the cleaning agent to the soil opens the process window. This presentation reports research findings from factorial experimental designs studying cause and effect relationships for removing flux residues under low gap components.
