The focus of the SMTA Flip Chip and BGA Technologies Workshop is to provide a forum for attendees to understand the fundamental aspects, current practices, and future trends in the rapidly advancing area of flip chip and BGA technologies.

Interconnect design, solder pastes, printing, underfill materials and practices, as well as reflow profiles are critical to the successful manufacture of flip chip and BGA assemblies. Area array interconnects also present a number of unique challenges towards achieving adequate solder joint reliability for products that are being placed in a growing variety of service environments.
