AUSTIN -- TechSearch International’s latest analysis describes high-performance package options with an update on TSMC’s new offerings, including the latest organics CoWoS® versions. New high-end product examples using fan-out on substrate are discussed. Features of the build-up substrates supporting redistribution layer (RDL) structures are provided. Applications for high-performance wafer-to-wafer hybrid bonding are also described. Trends in integrated photonics packaging are discussed, including the use of fan-out options.

The report includes OSAT financials and examines economic trends impacting the industry. The past two years saw phenomenal growth in shipments of smartphones and PCs. Reduced demand for smartphones and PCs this year is changing package demand. High-performance and mid-range Samsung smartphones are examined to determine package usage.

TechSearch International analyzes changes in the gap between manufacturing demand and capacity for build-up substrates. Lower demand for PCs is easing the shortage this year, but demand continues to increase for the more complex, more expensive FC-BGA substrates. Examples of substrate features are included. IC package substrate design rules for major suppliers are provided in the report.

The latest Advanced Packaging Update is an 89-page report with full references and an accompanying set of 43 PowerPoint slides.

NASHVILLE — July 2022 — KYZEN, the global leader in innovative environmentally friendly cleaning chemistries, will exhibit at the SMTA Ohio Valley Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Wednesday, August 24, 2022 at the Best Western Plus Strongsville. The KYZEN team will showcase the first and only concentration monitoring and control system in the world, the KYZEN Process Control System (PCS), and the newest addition to the award-winning AQUANOX product line: AQUANOX A4626.

The environmentally friendly AQUANOX A4626 removes all of the latest as well as traditional flux residues. It has a long tank life and is safe for multi-pass applications.

The next-generation cleaning chemistry is designed to quickly remove the latest polymeric no-clean flux residues, while providing superior results on traditional lead-free and eutectic tin-lead residues as well.

For world-class process control, the KYZEN PCS monitors and automatically reacts to the dynamic changes in the wash bath concentration. More than 20 years ago, KYZEN PCS was designed to maximize high-quality output from inline cleaning systems, and its capabilities have continuously improved and advanced.

Today, it remains the only complete concentration monitoring and control system available in the world. The latest KYZEN PCS features improved control algorithms and a new, 7” color touchscreen interface.

KYZEN products and cleaning experts have always been focused on the process so you can be sure the newest AQUANOX product will fit into your production line. Adding KYZEN's Process Control System or the KYZEN Analyst will complete the optimization and provide you with a worry-free process.

Bittele Electronics Inc., a Toronto-based PCB manufacturer specializing in prototype and small-to-mid volume printed circuit board assembly, announced the expansion of its Markham, Ontario, PCB assembly facility. Bittele has expanded its component warehouse to provide more storage space for consigned inventory since extended part lead times still plague the component market.

“With the expanded warehouse, we can store consigned parts for ongoing and upcoming orders,” says Ben Yang, CEO of Bittele Electronics. “We also offer the option of purchasing and stocking critical items from a customer’s BOM upon request.”

In addition to the expansion of its component warehouse, Bittele has also installed a new Soltec wave soldering machine, which will be utilized for larger-volume, through-hole assembly. The new wave soldering machine will complement its current Ersa selective soldering machine and will be operational later this summer.

Bittele’s Markham facility offers quick-turn prototype to mid-volume production focusing on its North American customers and features fully automated printed circuit board (PCB) loading, solder paste printing, component placement, reflow and inspection.
