This is your step-by-step guide through the entire electronic assembly fabrication process. Electronic assemblies are the heart of all modern electronics. They house the essential chip, generate semiconductor input/output, and take care of the heat generated by the process. The explosive growth of communications and consumer electronics applications has suddenly made a kwledge of the fabrication process a very in-demand and lucrative skill. Even beginners, with advanced degrees or mathematical backgrounds will be able to quickly and easily learn the entire electronic assembly fabrication process with this well-illustrated comprehensive tutorial.Author Charles Harper, a hands-on expert and experienced author covers the assembly process from start to finish, delving into: Chips; Boards; Solders; Packages; Interconnections; Substrates; Deposition; Cleaning; and, Coating. The latest environmental rules and constraints Electronic Assembly Fabrication will prove invaluable to nspecialists and managers as well as engineers and technicians working in the development, marketing, or manufacture of electronic products, and anyone else who wants to get familiar with and profit from one of the major growth areas in the field of electronics.
