Advanced Microelectronics Packaging, Interconnection Technology, and Pb-free Solders

Sunday, February 23, 2020
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
San Diego Convention Center, Room 4
Eric J. Cotts, Binghamton University (lead instructor); Charles Arvin, IBM; Nilesh Badwe, Intel; Eric Perfecto, IBM; Praveen Kumar, Indian Institute of Science; Ning-Cheng Lee, Indium; James Wilcox, Universal Instruments; Nik Chawla, Arizona State University


Continued advances in microelectronics assembly and packaging means thinner and smaller devices that operate at higher bandwidth and power density. Challenges in warpage, thermal management, thermal expansion mismatches, three-dimensional structure, and efficiency must be addressed. With new embedded packaging technologies, plastic and hybrid electronics, and additive manufacturing/3D printing, new roadblocks arise.

This workshop will address new demands on interconnection materials at all levels, including traditional and novel lead-free solders, conductive adhesive, whisker mitigation, solders and epoxies for the automotive sector, reinforcing epoxy, substrates, package reliability, and failure analysis.

Who Should Attend?

University research groups studying solder metal alloys and 3D microelectronics and those working in the microelectronics and materials industry would benefit from attending this workshop.

Learning Objectives

This course will offer attendees a clear articulation of industry needs and interests in future research, as well as a clearer sense of the frontiers of packaging research.
