Advanced Component Packages and Processes

1-Day Workshop 

Course Description

This course will introduce SMT users to the terminology, classifications, construction and assembly process for advanced component packages. Packages discussed in this course include BGAs, CSPs, Flip Chip, Wafer Level CSPs, COB, TAB, MCMs and Stacked Packages. A thorough comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of each component type, as well as their implementation requirements will be presented. High density interconnection, thermal management requirements and micro-via technology will also be discussed. The course will also cover assembly process details when using these devices in lead based and lead free assembly. Half day equivalent of hands-on education will be provided in the state-of-the-art laboratory using advanced technology PCB assemblies.

Who should attend?

  • People with prior background in SMT
  • Process, Design, Test and Quality Engineers
  • Process and Quality Technicians
  • Marketing, Sales and Purchasing Staff
  • Managers
