This annual Lead-Free Solders and Interconnect Technology Workshop provides latest development and research studies on interconnect materials and electronic packaging technologies. Due to the light-weight and multi-functional trends for electronic packages, the key materials used in different levels of packaging have dramatically changed or experienced severe service conditions. A lot of new interconnect material series, such as emerging lead-free solders, have been developed and reported in the past lead-free solder workshops. Meanwhile, their reliability issues have been deeply discussed within this workshop. Researchers in this fields have agreed that fundamental studies are needed to go further in materials perspective of view in order to improve the service capability of the new materials and assemblies. This year’s work shop will focus on several fundamentals studies on Sn-based interconnect materials, especially the fundamental materials issues that affect their reliability performance, such as whisker formation, mechanical behavior, etc.
