Indium Corporation Features WS-446HF Flip-Chip and Ball-Attach Flux at IEEE EPTC Singapore 2019

o0=Indium Corporation will feature its new combined flip-chip and ball-attach flux, designed to provide a simple solution to SiP and flip-chip BGA assembly, at IEEE EPTC Singapore 2019, December 4-6, in Singapore.

WS-446HF is a water-soluble, halogen-free flux with an activator system powerful enough to promote good wetting on the most demanding surfaces, including solder-on-pad (SoP), Cu-OSP, ENIG, and surfaces used in embedded trace substrate (ETS), and flip-chip on leadframe (FCOL) .

WS-446HF provides:

  • An activator chemistry powerful enough to deal with a variety of metallizations, yet cleans away completely to  eliminate electrical failures such as dendrites. This is critical for fine-pitch flip-chip applications
  • Tackiness suitable for flipchip and BGA assembly
    • BGA: holding 0.15–0.5mm diameter solder spheres during reflow, eliminating missing balls
    • Flip-chip: Retaining 5×5–15x15mm die in place during reflow, reducing die misalignment and die tilt
  • Consistent deposition in pin transfer, printing, and dipping processes, ensuring consistent joint quality and improving production yields
  • Elimination of multiple fluxing steps, especially in ball-attach assembly, enabling a single-step ball-attach process thus removing the warpage-inducing effects of prefluxing
  • Good cleanability with room temperature DI water (20-35°C), avoiding the formation of white residue

Indium Corporation is a premier materials manufacturer and supplier to the global electronics, semiconductor, thin-film, and thermal management markets. Products include solders and fluxes; brazes; thermal interface materials; sputtering targets; indium, gallium, germanium, and tin metals and inorganic compounds; and NanoFoil®.

TE Connectivity Announced Ultra Small Spring Fingers

TE Connectivity (TE)’snew ultra small spring fingers have one of the smallest footprints in the market to save valuable PCB space, allowing for use in a broad range of applications with space constraints across various industries.TE’s ultra small spring fingerscan save valuable PCB space with one of the smallest footprints in the market. Closed-loop contact design ensures reliable connection to the PCB, better normal force and higher current capacity (1.5A). Robust side wall minimizes over- compression. Special anti-lifting design can improve assembly e ciency by locking the tip of the contact within the sidewall of the spring  nger, which helps prevent the contact from getting caught on an operator’s glove during assembly. Pick-and-place area supports auto-assembly processes. It also offered in different heights and styles.As an authorized distributor for TE Connectivity, Heilind Asia provides TE’s products and also value added services. Heilind Asia supports both original equipment …

Battery Stack Monitor Maximizes Performance of Li-Ion Batteries in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

Cosimo CarrieroField Applications Engineer, Analog Devices, Inc.AbstractLithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries are a popular way to store energy in electric and hybrid vehicles. These batteries offer the highest energy density of any current battery technology, but to maximize performance, a battery monitoring system (BMS) is mandatory. A state-of-the-art BMS not only allows you to extract the highest quantity of charge from your battery pack, but also lets you manage the charge and discharge cycles in a safer way, which results in an extended life. Analog Devices provides a full portfolio of BMS devices with focus on accuracy and robust operation.Accurately measuring a battery’s state of charge (SOC) increases battery run time or decreases weight. A precise and stable device does not require factory calibration after PCB assembly. Stability over time improves safety and avoids warranty problems. A self-diagnostics feature helps reach the right automotive safety integrity level (ASIL). A batt…
