Beyond 0402M Placement: Process Considerations for 03015M Microchip Mounting

Brent Fischthal, Michael Cieslinski; Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America

The printed circuit board assembly industry has long embraced the "Smaller, Lighter, Faster" mantra for electronic devices, especially in our ubiquitous mobile devices. As manufacturers increase smart phone functionality and capability, designers must adopt smaller components to facilitate high-density packaging. Measuring over 40% smaller than today's 0402M (0.4mmx0.2mm) microchip, the new 03015M (0.3mmx0.15mm) microchip epitomizes the bleeding-edge of surface mount component miniaturization.

This presentation will explore board and component trends, and then delve into three critical areas for successful 03015M adoption: placement equipment, assembly materials, and process controls.
