Wafer Bumping Paste
Solder bumps on wafers may be produced by a variety of processes. For bumps with a pitch greater than 100microns, solder paste is often used to form the bump. Solder bumping of the top surface of BGA and PGA substrates for solder-on-pad (SOP) usually uses a very fine solder paste rather than plating. Formation of the much larger (0.3-0.6mm pitch) solder bumps on waferlevel CSPs is by a ball-drop process.

If you haven’t heard about Bi-containing (bismuth) solder alloys recently, that may change in the near future. Low-melting Bi-containing solders are now in increasing use and gaining popularity due to their lower melting temperatures—58Bi/42Sn is eutectic at 138°C and 57Bi/42Sn/1Ag melts…
Let's check in on Patty: Mike Madigan was not used to feeling intimidated. After all, as the CEO of ACME, a multi-billion US dollar EMS company, he was used to doing the intimidating. However, he had just finished a meeting with the CEOs of his two biggest customers and it was…
There are at least three significant reasons to use indium solder alloys in your die-attach operation: Physical performance, Supplier reliability, Material dependability: Physical: Indium-containing solder paste is very well proven in low temperature usage, however it is also used in some specific…
