Structural integrity and reliability in electronics: enhancing performance in a lead-free environment.
The Netherlands: Springer.
The World's largest industrial sector, Electronics, is facing twin challenges arising from the transition to environmentally-benign solder alloys and the necessity to maintain structural integrity and reliability in the face of continuing miniaturisation. This book is probably the first to address the situation from a multidisciplinary teaching perspective. The authors' expertise in Materials, Electronics Manufacture and Design are integrated throughout to establish a common platform and language for practitioners from the many fields involved. Communication is facilitated by a dual-level of presentation of the subject principles and the latest developments in industry and in research. Electronic routes for monitoring current and future progress are also provided. The book will appeal both to specialists wanting to update or increase their appreciation of related topics, and the generalist seeking relevant applications. It represents a major contribution to the field.
