Achieving 8% Voiding Using Bottom Terminated Components:
A paper at SMTAI 2016 on reducing voids in bottom terminated components. A little background on SMTA. SMTA, or Surface Mount Technology Association, was started in 1984 as a non-profit organization to foster education in the then new field of surface mount electronic assembly. Since then it has expanded to include all of electronic assembly. For many of us, it is our favorite industry organization, as it is very collegial, it feels almost like a family. SMTA has also stayed true to its educational mission. SMTAI is their international conference and exhibition. It is the one conference I always try to attend.
