EHS Seminar
  • An Examination of the Prospective Benefits of Manufacturing Electronic Assemblies Without Solder

    Mr. Joseph Fjelstad

    Verdant Electronics


    Joseph Fjelstad, founder and CEO of Verdant Electronicss is a 45 year veteran of the electronics interconnection industry. He has authored or coauthored several books on the topic including Flexible Circuit Technology, globally the most widely read book on the subject matte and Chip Scale Packaging for Microelectronics. Mr Fjelstad is also a prolific inventor with more than 175 US patents issued in his name and with many of the ideas disclosed in those patents now in wide use around the globe in electronic products of every type. His present company, Verdant Electronics, is focused on and is championing the idea of eliminating solder from the electronics manufacturing paradigm by, in essence, reversing the manufacturing process to make products that will be at once more economical, more environmentally friendly and more reliable though the elimination of what is recognized as the number one cause of electronics failure, the venerable but technically and physically limited solder joint.

    Solder has been the primary method for interconnecting electronic assemblies for well over half a century. While solder has served its intended purpose in a suitable manner over the decades, solder joints are known to be the primary sites of electronic system failures. This presentation will explore and examine prospective methods for making electronic assemblies without the use of solder under a new paradigm called SAFE (Solder Alloy Free Electronics) manufacturing. The methods hold promise of reducing manufacturing complexity and cost while increasing overall reliability. The resulting structures can also be made smaller, lighter and more environmentally friendly than those produced by traditional method. Examples of methods and technologies as well as the results of an experimental exercise wherein a circuit assembly designed using current best practices is compared to a circuit assembly which has been designed to be built without solder, using strict design guidelines will be presented.
