97% of surveyed attendees at the TMS2015 course were satisfied or very satisfied with the overall program of this workshop.
The annual Lead-Free Solders and Interconnect Technology Workshop provides the latest development and research studies on interconnect materials and electronic packaging technologies. Due to the miniaturization and multi-functional trends for electronic packages, the key materials used in different levels of packaging have dramatically changed or experienced severe service conditions. 2.5D and 3D interposer related technology show a fast trend in the industry looking for more fundamental mechanisms to be explored. In addition to the 3D technology in multi-stacking packages and interconnects, new methodologies like additive manufacturing with embedded interconnects are new areas for further research and development. But still, with these introductions of new technologies researchers in these 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. The workshop will both introduce the new technology trends and will also provide and address deep-dive discussion topics for both industry and academia.
Individuals working in the following areas will benefit from this workshop:
  • Electronic industry, related to electronic packaging and semiconductor manufacturing
  • Automobile, telecommunication, and military industries which use electronic devices
  • Academia and research institutes conducting research on interconnects, thermal/mechanical reliability testing, and new material development, not only on solder or interconnect materials, but also performing research on thermal interface and structure materials are target audience

Instructors to be announced in late 2015.
