IPC Releases IPC-7093A, Design and Assembly Process Implementation for BTCs


Reading time ( words)

The long-awaited release of IPC-7093A, Design and Assembly Process Implementation for Bottom Termination Components (BTCs) is here. Revision A is a complete overhaul of IPC-7093 which provides design and assembly guidance for implementing BTCs and focuses on critical design, materials, assembly, inspection, repair, quality, and reliability issues.             

IPC-7093A includes a step-by-step process on how to design and incorporate BTCs into any card layout. Comprehensive descriptions on how to successfully implement robust designs and assembly processes and troubleshooting guidance for common anomalies which can occur during BTC assembly are included.

Revision A adds state-of-the-art guidance on critical elements for thermal pad design, thermal via usage, stencil design, assembly recommendations, reliability considerations, known issues/ defects to avoid. The standard’s multiple design point options enable reliable BTC designs.

The standard is ideal for anyone involved with physical design, process and reliability engineers or managers who are responsible for design, assembly, inspection, and repair processes.

“BTCs are in integral part of electronic designs today,” stated Matt Kelly, IPC chief technologist. “With increased product functionality, device miniaturization, and increased power consumption the need for optimized thermal management has never been higher.”

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

How to Minimize Quoting Time and Increase Accuracy in EMS Production

03/30/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.
