Abstract

Wire sweep has been recognized as one of the major defects in encapsulation of electronic components by transfer molding. The phenomenon is very complicated as it is sensitive to a large number of parameters. In this experimental work, where a 160L QFP package used as the test vehicle, the detailed time-dependent wire displacement is measured for the following two different flow initial conditions: (i) the wire is immersed in the liquid and is displaced due to the acceleration of the flow from rest to the steady-state velocity, and (ii) the wire is surrounded by the ambient air and is displaced first due to the passage of the liquid front and then due to the hydrodynamic load. Significant differences have been observed between the two cases, with important implications for analytical and numerical studies of wire sweep.
