Dr. Jennie Hwang to Discuss Solder Joint Reliability at SMTA International 2018


Reading time ( words)

Solder joint reliability plays a critical role in the reliability of the entire spectrum of end-use electronic products, from consumer to industrial, from computing to IoT, from medical to military applications. In lead-free electronics, intermetallic compounds become increasingly important to the performance and reliability of solder interconnections in the chip level, package level and board level. Understanding the essential fundamentals and key factors behind intermetallics and solder joint reliability is a necessity to designing and manufacturing reliable products.

Dr. Jennie S. Hwang leverages her decades of comprehensive real-world experiences and deep knowledge to address solder joint reliability and the role of intermetallic compounds by integrating scientific fundamentals with practical requirements at the upcoming SMTA International 2018 event.

On October 15, Dr. Hwang will discuss relevant aspects of solder joint reliability at her PDC 13, Solder Joint Reliability – Principles and Applications, and PDC 19, Reliability of Electronics – The Role of Intermetallic Compounds. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own selected systems for deliberation.
