PDC 1: MAKING AND QUALIFYING RELIABLE EXTREME ENVIRONMENT ELECTRONICS

Today’s most challenging applications of electronics technology require operation in the harshest of environments. Electronics have left the desktop and air conditioned computer room to enter environments ranging from the deepest ocean depths to the vastness of space.  These environments combine extreme temperatures with extreme pressures, high levels of shock and vibration, and exposure to damaging chemicals.  Applications as diverse as avionics/planetary exploration (Venus: 460C surface, 90 atm pressure, H2SO4), energy exploration (T > 150C, high pressure, corrodants, drilling shock), and underhood automotive propulsion (T > 165C, vibration, road salt) require new materials and mechanical design solutions that address thermal management, stress management, fatigue resistance, corrosion resistance, durability, reliability, maintainability, and sustainability.  In addition, temperatures are rising for many power electronic systems as well, with the combination of higher power density modules and the availability of high temperature stable semiconductor devices. This presentation will discuss the latest work in the areas of wide bandgap semiconductor reliability, high temperature interconnection including copper wire bonding, lead-free attach material synthesis, 3D integrated thermal packaging, and advanced manufacturing of power electronics – all focused on designing, manufacturing and qualifying electronics for reliable use in the most extreme environments.

PDC 2: ADVANCES IN HIGHLY THERMALLY CONDUCTIVE ORGANIC POWER PACKAGING

New Epoxy Resin Composite Dielectric (ERCD) films for single and multilayer organic substrates can reach high thermal conductivity (10W/mK), high temperature (300C), and high voltage (40kV/mm) with thicknesses from 80m to 120m, and are ideal for signal and power packaging. The thermal conductance of 120m at 8W/mK surpasses 500m Al2O3 as a substrate material. Multilayering brings to power packaging the opportunity to manage common-mode currents in high-frequency switching by Wide Band Gap (WBG) devices, such as power GaN, and extended for mixed signal electronics. The attendee will gain knowledge of material characteristics, design rules for use along with a list of fabricators, and be presented with two design examples.

Douglas Hopkins, North Carolina State University

Dr. Hopkins is a professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Director of the Laboratory for Packaging Research in Electronic Energy Systems (PREES), which is part of the NSF FREEDM Systems Center, and is an affiliate faculty member in the Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics CAMAL, at North Carolina State University. He has over 20 years of academic and industrial experience focused on high-frequency, high density power electronics with emphasis on packaging. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Tech, and spent his early career at the R&D centers of GE and Carrier Air-Conditioning Companies in advanced power electronics systems for military and commercial applications. He has published over 130 journal and conference articles, a number recognized with awards and is an IMAPS Fellow.

PDC3: THERMAL AND DYNAMIC STRESS FAILURES IN ELECTRONIC AND PHOTONIC PACKAGING: PREDICTION AND PREVENTION

Typical stress failures caused by elevated thermal and/or dynamic loadings are addressed and discussed, with an emphasis on the high-temperature electronic and photonic packaging, the role of predictive modeling and, particularly, analytical (mathematical) and probabilistic modeling, and possible solutions to the typical reliability problems are considered and addressed.


Ephraim Suhir, Portland State University

Ephraim Suhir is on the faculty of the Portland State University, Portland, OR, USA, Technical University, Vienna, Austria and James Cook University, Queensland, Australia. He is also CEO of a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) ERS Co. in Los Altos, CA, USA. He is Life Fellow of IMAPS, IEEE, ASME and SPIE. He received many professional awards, including 1996 Bell Laboratories Distinguished Member of Technical Staff (DMTS) Award,  2019 IEEE EPS Field award and 2019 IMAPS Lifetime Achievement award
