Vol. 34 No. 1 (2021): Journal of Surface Mount Technology

This issue includes three papers of significance to the electronics manufacturing industry. The first paper is the third and final part of a study we have published over the past year on Tin Whisker Formation and this part goes in-depth on characterization and mechanisms. The second paper describes a novel process for direct writing polymer-thick-film resistors for printed electronics. The third paper addresses the reliability and performance of wafer level fan out packages for automotive radar applications.
