Project general information
Project: Components’ assembly and interconnection through combined solderless technologies – COMPACT
Finaciar support: The Executive Unit for Financing Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation (UEFISCDI); European Commission through ERANET MANUNET programme
Project type: ERANET
Contract number: 153/2020
Period: 2020 – 2022
COMPACT project aims to develop a new manufacturing technology method to build electronic modules without
using solder alloy, but materials like conductive paste or ink, resin, electroless copper. The proposed technology might allow to manufacture cheaper and more reliable electronic modules since all the problems caused by the solder joints (defects like cracking, whiskers, tombstoning, voiding, a.s.o.), and by the process (delamination, higher thermal stress of the components), will disappear.
COMPACT involves less energy Consuming processes thus contributing to the environment protection. In order to achieve its objectives, COMPACT combines two processes, the printed circuit board fabrication and the electronic components assembly, into one in which the electronic module is built layer by layer, electronic components placement and interconnection structure, by using other processes (e.g:printing, curing, encapsulation, copper deposition) with existing equipment. COMPACT allows to get robust electronic modules, fully protected to dust, chokes and humidity. It is expected that the first applications will be for harsh environments, underground (traffic/parking sensors), navy, space.
