A Full Day Presentation on:
RF/Microwave Hybrids: Basics, Materials and Processes
Course Leader: Richard Brown, Richard Brown Associates

Course Description:
In recent years, the demands for high frequency systems and products have been growing at a rapid pace. Coupled with the continuing development of monolithic integrated circuits, MMICs, are new materials and process refinement of hybrids. As a result, system and product designers are faced with the choice between hybrids and MMICs; i.e., complete system on a chip vs. hybrids with discrete devices, or more often, somewhere in-between.

This course will begin with a short, non-mathematical review of high frequency basics. Next a comparison of MMICs and hybrids is presented. The transmission line as the basic circuit component of RF and microwave hybrids will be reviewed. Hybrid “waveguide” structures will be compared as they relate to transmission line properties. The basic materials (conductors, dielectrics and substrates) and their properties will be introduced. Their effect on impedance, circuit properties and performance will be discussed. Processing technologies suitable for RF/microwave hybrids will be reviewed. Selected packaging protocols, such as vias and bonding wires, will be discussed in light of their influence on RF/microwave performance. At the completion of this course, attendees will have a better understanding of many of the critical materials and processing factors affecting high frequency circuit performance.

Who Should Attend?
Any industry professionals who want to better appreciate the critical materials, process interactions and variables affecting high frequency hybrid manufacturing. Supervisors, engineers and technicians involved in product development, design and manufacture are encouraged to attend.

Richard Brown is a technical and engineering consultant in hybrids, with more than 30 years experience, encompassing thin and thick film, electroplating and substrate technologies. He began his career at Bell Telephone Laboratories. After joining RCA Solid State in 1968, he transferred in 1979 to the RCA Microwave Technology Center in Princeton. In 1991, Mr. Brown joined an Alcoa Electronic Packaging technology team as program manager to implement thin film on high temperature co-fired ceramic for MCMs.

He has published extensively, authoring a chapter on Thin Film for Microwave Hybrids in “Handbook of Thin Film Technology,” McGraw-Hill, NY, 1998, A. Elshabini-Riad, Ed., and most recently RF/Microwave Hybrids; Basics, Materials and Processes, Kluwer Academic Press, 2003. In 1995, ISHM awarded him the prestigious John A. Wagnon, Jr. Technical Achievement Award.

A Full Day Presentation on:

                 “Understanding Deemed Exports.”

Abstract:  This presentation will review the particulars of an export transaction such as; what is the definition of an export, how to determine if your export transaction is controlled and if so, by which government agency.  The session will also bring awareness to deemed exports and discuss the controls that should be put in place in order to manage your exports and deemed exports compliantly, including how to obtain a deemed export license and who is defined as a foreign national and its importance.

Biography:  Sarah Reynolds has over 25 years experience in the international logistic industry specializing in supply chain management to difficult and problematic countries.  Sarah’s experience includes employment by notable international freight forwarders such as Kuehne & Nagel, SDV and UTI and exposure to various aspects of the industry such as; sales and customer service, worldwide bid negotiation, network development and compliance management.  Sarah is currently a Senior Consultant at American River International where she provides consulting services and training to companies involved in the international supply chain industry.

   4:45  Brief Break
   5:00  Vidyu Challa, PhD Candidate at the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) University of Maryland
              “Effect of Joule Heating on Reliability of High Pin Count Land Grid Array Sockets." 

Abstract:  Performance requirements in high-end microprocessors have led to higher I/O counts and interconnect densities.  As greater currents pass through the microprocessor interconnect, higher temperatures driven by Joule heating are expected to pose a reliability risk to high-pin microprocessor sockets. In this study, the properties of the polymer housing were found to be sensitive to temperature effects owing to its visco-elastic nature, and to significantly influence the stress relaxation behavior of the socket, potentially leading to earlier failure. The factors that influence Joule heating and therefore contribute to earlier failure by stress relaxation were examined using a combination of experimental and numerical methods. Polymer visco-elasticity was characterized and the properties were subsequently used to demonstrate earlier failure by stress relaxation for land-grid array sockets at higher temperatures driven by Joule heating.

Biography:  Vidyu Challa is a PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering at CALCE. Prior to joining CALCE, Vidyu spent 4 years in the microelectronics industry in the areas of material characterization and failure analysis as an Applications Engineer at Sonix, Inc.  Vidyu received the Phi Delta Gamma award for interdisciplinary scholarship achievement and the Ann Wylie Dissertation Fellowship. Her research interests include socket and connector reliability, qualification of electronic components/systems, material characterization, and finite-element modeling for electronics.  Vidyu has 10 publications from her work at CALCE and her previous position.  She received the M.S degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Akron.
