Description : The Mechanics of Solder Alloy Interconnects is a resource to be used in developing a solder joint reliability assessment. Each chapter is written to be used as a stand-alone resource for a particular aspect of materials and modeling issues. With this gained understanding, the reader in search of a solution to a solder joint reliability problem knows where in the materials and modeling communities to go for the appropriate answer.
Description : In 1992 Congress passed the Defense Manufacturing Engineering Education Act with the intent of encouraging academic institutions to increase their emphasis on manufacturing curricula. The need for this incentive to integrate the academic and industrial communities was clear: gaps in manufacturing science were inhibiting the evolution of new manufacturing technologies that are required for the U.S. to maintain a competitive posture in the world marketplace. The Army Research Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories sought to contribute to the congressional intent by initiating a new series of graduate level college textbooks. The goal was to focus next-generation scientists onto issues that were common to the needs of the commercial market, the affordability of DoD weapons systems, and the mobilization readiness of the U.S. Armed Forces. The textbook The Mechanics of Solder Wetting and Spreading was written in this spirit by nationally renowned scientists for academe and industry. Research ers using the book are encouraged to formulate programs that will establish scien tific correlations between manufacturing process controls and product reliability. Such correlations are essential to the building of a new electronics industry which is based upon the futuristic concepts of Virtual Factories, Prototyping, and Testing.
Description : This handbook provides the most comprehensive, up-to-date and easy-to-apply information on the physics, mechanics, reliability and packaging of micro- and opto-electronic materials. It details their assemblies, structures and systems, and each chapter contains a summary of the state-of-the-art in a particular field. The book provides practical recommendations on how to apply current knowledge and technology to design and manufacture. It further describes how to operate a viable, reliable and cost-effective electronic component or photonic device, and how to make such a device into a successful commercial product.
Description : With the proliferation of packaging technology, failure and reliability have become serious concerns. This invaluable reference details processes that enable detection, analysis and prevention of failures. It provides a comprehensive account of the failures of device packages, discrete component connectors, PCB carriers and PCB assemblies.
Description : Although there is increasing need for modeling and simulation in the IC package design phase, most assembly processes and various reliability tests are still based on the time consuming "test and try out" method to obtain the best solution. Modeling and simulation can easily ensure virtual Design of Experiments (DoE) to achieve the optimal solution. This has greatly reduced the cost and production time, especially for new product development. Using modeling and simulation will become increasingly necessary for future advances in 3D package development. In this book, Liu and Liu allow people in the area to learn the basic and advanced modeling and simulation skills to help solve problems they encounter. Models and simulates numerous processes in manufacturing, reliability and testing for the first time Provides the skills necessary for virtual prototyping and virtual reliability qualification and testing Demonstrates concurrent engineering and co-design approaches for advanced engineering design of microelectronic products Covers packaging and assembly for typical ICs, optoelectronics, MEMS, 2D/3D SiP, and nano interconnects Appendix and color images available for download from the book's companion website Liu and Liu have optimized the book for practicing engineers, researchers, and post-graduates in microelectronic packaging and interconnection design, assembly manufacturing, electronic reliability/quality, and semiconductor materials. Product managers, application engineers, sales and marketing staff, who need to explain to customers how the assembly manufacturing, reliability and testing will impact their products, will also find this book a critical resource.

Description : The reliability of solders and solder joints is an important factor in the durability and design of electronic packages. This volume addresses issues of reliability such as microstructural stability in service, creep, fatigue, creep/fatigue interactions, and thermomechanical fatigue of bulk solders and solder joints.
Description : The ELFNET Book on Failure Mechanisms, Testing Methods, and Quality Issues of Lead-Free Solder Interconnects is the work of the European network ELFNET which was founded by the European Commission in the 6th Framework Programme. It brings together contributions from the leading European experts in lead-free soldering. The limited validity of testing methods originating from tin-lead solder was a major point of concern in ELFNET members' discussions. As a result, the network's reliability group decided to bring together the material properties of lead-free solders, as well as the basics of material science, and to discuss their influence on the procedures for accelerated testing. This has led to a matrix of failure mechanisms and their activation and, as a result, to a comprehensive coverage of the scientific background and its applications in reliability testing of lead-free solder joints. The ELFNET Book on Failure Mechanisms, Testing Methods, and Quality Issues of Lead-Free Solder Interconnects is written for scientists, engineers and researchers involved with lead-free electronics.
