LORD Corporation's Wang to speak at IMAPS

Sept. 12, 2011
Date Announced: 12 Sep 2011 LORD Corporation – a leading supplier of thermal management materials, adhesives, coatings and encapsulants to the electronics, LED and solar industries – has announced that Larry Wang, Ph.D., staff scientist, Electronic Materials Research and Development at LORD Corporation, will present a paper at the International Microelectronics and Packaging Society Carolinas Chapter Fall Technical Symposium. The paper will be presented on Sept. 15 at Juki Headquarters in Morrisville, N.C. at 2:45 p.m. Wang’s paper is entitled: “Cooling from Down Under – Thermally Conductive Underfill.” In response to the need for protection and heat dissipation of flip chip devices in confined spaces where Thermal Interface Material (TIM) and heat sink is impractical, LORD developed a new class of thermally conductive underfills. This paper describes the key challenges in developing underfill technologies imposed by package geometrics and performance requirements, and discusses the development of a non-anhydride underfill with low viscosity, small particle size filler, high thermal conductivity and reliability. The results will be presented on the underfill material characterization, underfilling process parameter and flip chip device reliability. Wang is responsible for the development and commercialization of new materials for the electronics market. With expertise in various areas including conductive materials, adhesives, underfills, potting and encapsulants, he has also served in a technical supporting role for the LORD electronics business. Having worked for LORD Corporation for 10 years, Wang has more than 20 years of combined industrial experience focused on adhesives, coatings and potting encapsulants for the electronics industry. Wang earned his Ph.D. in polymer science from Peking University.For more information or to register for the Carolinas Chapter Fall Technical Symposium, please visit www.imaps.org.
