Enhancing the Reliability of Flip Chip Assemblies with Underfill Encapsulants

The development of epoxy based underfill encapsulants marked a turning point for flip chip technology, and the semiconductor industry. Underfill encapsulants are carefully formulated to ensure flowability, an acceptable CTE, and other desirable properties. In this white paper, we explore what properties are required for effective underfills to ensure reliability and quality in flip chip applications.October 07, 2014

Conformal Coatings for Reliable Electronic Assemblies

Modern electronics have become part of our daily lives and the sophisticated electronic circuitry at the heart of these devices and systems must be reliable. Conformal coatings act as a barrier between the electronics and the environment, protecting the areas they cover while strengthening delicate components and traces. Find out more about how conformal coatings enhance the reliability and longevity of electronic printed circuit boards.April 24, 2014

The Next Step in Diagnosis Resolution Improvement

Root Cause Deconvolution (RCD), a statistical enhancement technology recently made available in Mentor Graphics’ Tessent Diagnosis and YieldInsight products, is the next step in diagnosis resolution enhancement. It works by analyzing multiple layout-aware diagnosis reports together to identify the underlying defect distribution (root cause distribution) that is most likely to explain this set of diagnosis results. The results are then back- annotated to the individual diagnosis suspects.April 24, 2014
