TopLine Intros Large Scale QFN Daisy Chain Test Package


Reading time ( words)

TopLine now produces very large size 12x12mm daisy chain QFN components with dummy silicon die for use in a variety of SMT process and thermal profile testing applications. These large-size, bottom terminal QFN packages feature 100 pins, spaced very fine pitch at 0.4mm. The package size conforms to JEDEC standards with package height not exceeding 1.0mm. The terminals and ground pads are plated with nickel palladium gold (Ni Pd Au) to optimize SMT soldering.

The package level daisy chain circuit, made with 25µm gold bonding wire, forms an electrical connection between pads. These zero-ohm connections may be used to monitor electrical opens and shorts so that one may forensically determine the cause of PCB circuit board failure with simple GO/No-Go techniques using an ohm meter. Operating temperature range from -65⁰C to +150⁰C. 

Other applications include PCB circuit board cleanliness testing incorporating SIR (surface insulation resistance) monitoring.

04/19/2018 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
At the recent West Penn SMTA Expo, Eric Camden, lead investigator at Foresite Inc., speaks with I-Connect007's Patty Goldman about fluxes and analytical tools for testing cleanliness, and how these impact the reliability of the assembled boards.

Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.

Why AOI is a Must-have for PCB Assembly

04/05/2018 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
AOI has an invaluable role to play in speeding up the process of PCB production, in ensuring extreme precision to catch even the smallest of defects, and in minimizing the potential for time-consuming and costly reworking.
