The option of treating fine pitch wafer level CSP (WLCSP) devices as flip chips and assembling them using a flux dipping process appears to be an increasingly attractive alternative to traditional paste printing assembly. However, printing solder paste offers the advantages of increasing standoff and improving thermal cycle performance. This paper discusses solder paste printing and flux dipping assembly processes for 0.4 and 0.5mm pitch lead-free WLCSPs and the corresponding assembly results and thermal cyclic reliability obtained...

Assembly viewer software used by electronics manufacturers to quickly find components, pin, shorts between traces, etc. ProntoVIEW-MARKUP is also a redline tool that allows annotation of the assembly to create work and assembly instructions, first article inspection, etc.
BEST Instructors have put to video demonstrations of common hand soldering skills. These are not designed to be in place of live one on one training where repetitive skills and subsequent one on one feedback is given. Rather they are quick refreshers designed to be viewed if a specific skill has not been practiced in a while.
