IMAPS PDC Webinar Series on
Assessment of RGA Data and Failures in Microelectronic Devices

This two-session on-line Professional Development Course (PDC) webinar will be held:
Tuesdays, December 6 and 13, 2011

All webinars will be held 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm EST

This webinar has been cancelled.


Program Description

These 2 one-hour PDC lectures can be taken in total or separately, but to gain the most benefit it is recommended to attend the whole series in order. Each session is scheduled for 50 minutes of presentation followed by 10 minutes of Questions and Answers. A brief description of the topics to be covered follows:

SUBJECT MATTER FOR THE WEBINAR TO INCLUDE:

  • REDEFINE HERMETICITY
  • WHY DETERMINE MOISTURE CONTENT
  • WHO DETERMINES MOISTURE CONTENT
  • SOURCES OF MOISTURE LEAKS
    • RESIDUALS
    • IN-SITU FORMATION
  • WHEN TO PERFORM RGA
  • HOW TO DETERMINE MOISTURE CONTENT
    • EQUIPMENT & ASSOCIATED PROBLEMS
    • CALIBRATION & ASSOCIATED PROBLEMS
  • INTERPRETATION OF RGA DATA

 

  Philipp wh Schuessler

Presenter

Mr. Schuessler completed his undergraduate and graduate work in Analytical and Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry in 1965. He retired from IBM/FSD and Lockheed Martin as a Senior Scientist after thirty-five years in 1996 and since then has done consulting for the microelectronic industries. His specialties were analytical chemistry and the failure analysis of electronic devices for DOD and NASA, as well as Applied R&D for the U.S. Navy in moisture permeation. He led the IBM/FSD Challenger Shuttle Recovery Team at the Cape, where he extemporaneously developed recovery, stabilization and storage protocols for the computer hardware at the recovery site and later at the reconstruction facilities.

In Materials and Process Development, he was responsible for the polymeric seal process of the first IBM/FSD hybrid-LSI devices. Later, he organized an adhoc group of technologists to address the issue of hydrogen evolution and moisture formation in hermetic microelectronic devices.

In JEDEC, he chaired the task groups for Method 5011 (Adhesives and Polymeric Materials) and Method 1018 (Residual Gas Analysis).

He has authored on various aspects of industrial chemistry, has over fifty five papers and published articles, twenty published invention disclosures and four published patents. He has been the coordinator of the Minnowbrook Microelectronic Conference since 1985.
