  • Joints realized by sintering of pressureless Ag paste
    • Pages: 2 - 8
      Abstract: Circuit World, Volume 45, Issue 1, Page 2-8, February 2019.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper was to investigate an influence of a low temperature pressureless sintering process of silver paste on the quality of sintered joints. Design/methodology/approach The authors analyzed various curing conditions of the paste during its sintering process: 175°C/90 min, 200°C/60 min, 250°C/30 min, 250°C/60 min, 350°C/30 min and 350°C/60 min. They analyzed an influence of the surface plating applied on a ceramic substrate/layer (Cu, Ag, AgPt and Au thick film) on the joints quality. The authors analyzed microstructure and electrical resistance of the joints. They evaluated these properties from the point of view of thermal aging process and changing resistance, after a constant current loading of the sintered joints. Findings The nanoscale pressureless silver paste can be applied for replacing a pressure-assisted micro-sized silver paste. It was found that the quality of the metal plating applied on the ceramic substrate/layer has a significant impact on the quality of the sintered joints. Copper and AgPt plating have better impact on quality of sintered joints in compare with Ag plating. Originality/value This investigation of the quality of the pressureless sintered joints at the silver-silver interface reveals an evident cracking immediately after the silver paste curing. Rapid sintering process typical for silver-based films on the substrate is because of the inter-diffusion between the micro and nanoparticles of silver at interfacial interface.

  • Photonic curing of silver paths on 3D printed polymer substrate
    • Pages: 9 - 14
      Abstract: Circuit World, Volume 45, Issue 1, Page 9-14, February 2019.
      Purpose Despite almost limitless possibilities of rapid prototyping, the idea of 3D printed fully functional electronic device still has not been fulfilled – the missing point is a highly conductive material suitable for this technique. The purpose of this paper is to present the usage of the photonic curing process for sintering highly conductive paths printed on the polymer substrate. Design/methodology/approach This paper evaluates two photonic curing processes for the conductive network formulation during the additive manufacturing process. Along with the xenon flash sintering for aerosol jet-printed paths, this paper examines rapid infrared sintering for thick-film and direct write techniques. Findings This paper proves that the combination of fused deposition modeling, aerosol jet printing or paste deposition, along with photonic sintering, is suitable to obtain elements with low resistivity of 3,75·10−8 Ωm. Presented outcomes suggest the solution for fabrication of the structural electronics systems for daily-use applications. Originality/value The combination of fused deposition modelling (FDM) and aerosol jet printing or paste deposition used with photonic sintering process can fill the missing point for highly conductive materials for structural electronics.

  • Investigation of inkjet printed path resistance in the context of
           manufacture and flexible application
    • Pages: 15 - 25
      Abstract: Circuit World, Volume 45, Issue 1, Page 15-25, February 2019.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to study the repeatability of path manufacturing in the drop on demand inkjet printing process and the influences of environmental and application factors on path resistance. Design/methodology/approach Paths were printed as multiline paths in packets one-, two- and three-layer paths on polyimide substrates using nanoparticle silver ink. The sintering conditions were determined experimentally. The paths were subjected to climatic and shock exposures and to bending processes. The resistance, profile and width of the paths were measured and analyzed. The temperature distribution for electrically heated paths was measured to identify the defects. Findings This research shows the repeatability of printing processes and identifies the sources that cause diversification in path parameters after the whole technological process. The influence of shock, climatic and mechanical exposures on path electrical properties is indicated. An effective method for identifying defects thermally is shown. Research limitations/implications The research could have limited universality by arbitrarily use of substrate material, ink, printhead, process parameters and kind of sample exposures. Practical implications The research includes practically useful information about the width, thickness, defects and resistances and their changes during a typical application for a path printed with different technological parameters. Originality/value This research presents the results of original empirical research on problems concerning the manufacture of paths with uniform parameters and shows how path parameters will change under exposures that may occur in a typical application. The research combines both production and application aspects.

    • Pages: 26 - 30
      Abstract: Circuit World, Volume 45, Issue 1, Page 26-30, February 2019.
      Purpose A comparison of electric and viscosity percolation threshold is crucial from the scientific and technical points of view to understand the features and capabilities of heterogeneous graphene composite materials and properly select the functional phase volume. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to present the analysis of the electrical and rheological percolation thresholds in the polymer–graphene screen printing pastes and the analysis of the relation between these two parameters. Design/methodology/approach In the paper, the properties of polymer-based pastes with graphene nanoplatelets were tested: paste viscosity and printed layers conductivity. The tests of pastes with different filler content allowed to determine both the electrical and rheological percolation thresholds using power law, according to Kirkpatrick’s percolation model. Findings The electrical percolation threshold for graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) in the composite was 0.74 Vol.% when the rheological percolation threshold is observed to be at 1.00 Vol.% of nanoplatelets. The percolation threshold values calculated using the Kirkpatrick’s percolation model were 0.87 and 0.5 Vol.% of GNPs in the paste for electrical and rheological percolation thresholds, respectively. Originality/value Recently, GNPs are becoming more popular as the material of the functional phase in screen printing heterophase materials, because of their unique mechanical and electrical properties. However, till date no research presented in the literature is related to the direct comparison of both the electrical and rheological percolation thresholds. Such analysis is important for the optimization of the printing process toward the highest quality of printed conductive paths, and finally the best electrical properties.

  • Piezoresistive effect in embedded thick-film resistors
    • Pages: 31 - 36
      Abstract: Circuit World, Volume 45, Issue 1, Page 31-36, February 2019.
      Purpose Nowadays, using of material properties for monitoring of phenomena occurring in the surrounding environment is very desirable. Taking into account the dynamic development of Internet of Things and the technological development of printed electronics, research into the using of printed electronic components for sensor applications can be one of the most prominent directions of searching for new innovative solutions. Among others, it is possible to apply them to produce the strain gauges, as well as for construction of advanced sensors for medical applications. The goal of this paper is to present the possibilities and using different constructions of embedded polymer thick-film resistors as the sensors of tension or strain. Design/methodology/approach The investigations were based on the polymer thick-film resistors made of carbon or carbon–silver inks printed on copper pads made on FR-4 material on two sides. The longitudinal samples laminated with resin-coated copper foil material and without lamination were bent on a strength machine. During the tests, the resistors depending on their placement were stretched or compressed. Some of the samples were also tested under high pressure. Under the influence of applied stresses, there was a reversible change in electrical resistance, which was monitored. Findings The study showed that the polymer thick-film resistors are characterized by a measurable piezoresistive effect. By analyzing the value of the observed resistance changes, a magnitude of strain or pressure can be worked out. During the bending, the piezoresistive effect depends on the location and orientation of the resistor. After stopping of the mechanical strains, the electrical resistance of the resistive elements does not return exactly to the initial value. This is probably related to the substrate material and the resistive paste composition. The results are very promising and further research will be done. Originality/value The results provided information about the piezoresistive effect of polymer thick-film resistors printed on the deformable substrate which could be interesting for engineers involved in printed sensor development dedicated for different fields of application. This phenomenon can be used to manufacturing cheap and uncomplicated sensors to monitor deformation. There are several aspects to be solved, but with the use of new types of resistive pastes and substrates, there is a potential possibility of using such resistors as sensors.

  • Advances on high current load effects on lead-free solder joints of SMD
           chip-size components and BGAs
    • Pages: 37 - 44
      Abstract: Circuit World, Volume 45, Issue 1, Page 37-44, February 2019.
      Purpose This paper aims to present a novel approach on investigating critical current densities in the solder joints of chip-size surface-mounted components or device (SMD) components and ball grid array (BGA) lead-free solder joints with the focus of via-in-pad geometries. The investigation involves a numerical approach and a physical validation with selected geometry configurations and high current loads to reveal possible failure sources. The work is a continuation of a previous study. Design/methodology/approach Current density was investigated using finite element modeling on BGA joints. Dummy BGA components, 0402 and 0603 zero ohm jumper resistors, were used, both in daisy chain setups on standard FR4 printed circuit boards (PCBs). Respective physical loading experiments were set to find effects of elevated current density at hot zones of the joints. Cross-section analysis, scanning electron microscopy and shear force tests were used to analyze the joints. Findings The findings reveal alterations in the joints, while the current loading is not directly affecting the structure. The modeling reveals the current density map in the selected formations with increased current crowding zones. Overall, the degradation does not reach the level of electromigration (EM)-induced voiding due to the limiting factor of the FR4 substrate. Practical implications The heavy current load affects joint reliability, but there are limitations of EM-induced failures on PCB-based assemblies due to the thermomechanical weakness of the FR4 material. Originality/value The experiments investigate current density from a novel aspect on frequently used BGA surface mounted components with modeling configurations focusing on possible effects of via-in-pad structure.

  • Signal integrity in microelectronic hybrid systems made on metal
    • Pages: 45 - 51
      Abstract: Circuit World, Volume 45, Issue 1, Page 45-51, February 2019.
      Purpose This paper aims to present the problems connected with integrity of electrical signals in microelectronic hybrid systems made on metal substrates. The systems made on ferritic and austenitic sheet substrates were selected for the analysis. Design/methodology/approach For experimental investigations for the identification of the per-unit-length parameters for the simplest planar structures realized in thick-film technology on metal substrates, three types of path test systems with different geometric parameters were made. For the test circuits’ realization, the metal substrates of ferritic stainless steel of H17 grade (1.4016) with a thickness of 1 mm were selected. The sizes of 110 × 60 mm were obtained by laser cutting which process was required to obtain sufficient flatness of the substrates. Measurements were conducted using special elaborated equipment. Findings For selected configurations of conductive paths, the results of calculations and measurements of the range of variability of residual parameters for the systems of mutually parallel paths were presented. For selected path systems, the results of signals integrity analysis in mutually parallel path systems have been included. Originality/value The influence of configuration of paths, their geometrical and physical parameters on the value of residual elements parameters was determined, and their role in propagation process of fast-changing signals in the mutually parallel path systems was analyzed. These effects are very important from the point of view of electromagnetic compatibility and signal integrity of electronic circuits.

  • Stabilization and circuit implementation of a novel chemical oscillating
           chaotic system
    • Abstract: Circuit World, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose This paper is aimed at investigating a novel chemical oscillating chaotic system with different attractors at fixed parameters. The typical dynamical behavior of the new chemical oscillating system is discussed, and it is found that the state selection is dependent on initial values. Then, the stabilization problem of the chemical oscillating attractors is investigated analytically and numerically. Subsequently, the novel electronic circuit of the proposed chemical oscillating chaotic system are constructed, and the influences of the changes of circuit parameters on chemical oscillating chaotic attractors are investigated. Design/methodology/approach The different attractors of the novel chemical oscillating chaotic system are investigated by changing the initial values under fixed parameters. Moreover, the active control and adaptive control methods are presented to make the chemical oscillating chaotic systems asymptotically stable at the origin based on the Lyapunov stability theory. The influences on chemical oscillating chaotic attractors are also verified by changing the circuit parameters. Findings It is found that the active control method is easier to be realized by using physical components because of its less control signal and lower cost. It is also confirmed that the adaptive control method enjoys strong anti-interference ability because of its large number of selected controllers. What can be seen from the simulation results is that the chaotic circuits are extremely dependent on circuit parameters selection. Comparisons between MATLAB simulations and Multisim simulation results show that they are consistent with each other and demonstrate that changing attractors of the chemical oscillating chaotic system exist. It is conformed that circuit parameters selection can be effective to control and realize chaotic circuits. Originality/value The different attractors of the novel chemical oscillating chaotic system are investigated by changing the initial values under fixed parameters. The characteristic of the chemical oscillating attractor is that the basin of attraction of the three-dimensional attractor is located in the first quadrant of the eight quadrants of the three-dimensional space, and the ranges of the three variables are positive. This is because the concentrations of the three chemical substances are all positive.

  • Stability investigations based on two-port describing functions
    • Abstract: Circuit World, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose Stability of a nonlinear, tuned amplifier has been investigated based on the describing function method. On stability, this paper means global asymptotic stability. The tuned amplifier comprises a saturated amplifying device with feedback and two resonators, at the input and the output. Describing function method here means introduction of the two-port describing functions. Design/methodology/approach Describing function method is applied, extended for two ports. Results from complex analysis and matrix algebra are heavily used. The two resonators have identical resonant frequency and bandwidth. Instability is represented by non-vanishing output perturbation for zero-input perturbation. Applying a simple transistor model with saturation and feedback, stability is analyzed in the form of output voltage as a function of input voltage. Findings Two-port scattering and admittance describing functions have been introduced. At a certain input voltage amplitude, instability appears in the form of unwanted sidebands, then at a higher input voltage, instability disappears, in good agreement with experiments. The hand calculated stability limits are in good agreement with the computer analysis. Originality/value The paper is based on an early publication of the author (Baranyi and Ladvánszky, 1984). Here, the full material is presented, explained step by step, extended and revised. All neglections that were earlier made in the author’s paper have been avoided here. This paper has significant tutorial value as well.

  • Design of the variable frequency oscillator in DC-DC converter
    • Abstract: Circuit World, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose Because of the logic delay in the converter, the minimum turn on time of the switch is influenced by the constant time. When the inductor current gets to the threshold of the chip, the control signal will delay for a period. This makes the inductor current rising with the increasing of the clock and leads to the load current out of control. Thus, this paper aims to design an oscillator with a variable frequency protection function. Design/methodology/approach This paper presents an oscillator with the reducing frequency applied in the DC-DC converter. When the converter works normally, the operating frequency of the oscillator is 1.5 MHz. So the inductor current has enough time to decay and prevent the power transistor damaging. After the abnormal condition, the converter returns to the normal operating mode automatically. Findings Based on 0.5 µm CMOS process, simulated by the HSPICE, the simulation results shows that the frequency of the oscillator linearly decreases from 1.5 MHz to 380 KHz when the feedback voltage less than 0.2 V. The maximum deviation of the oscillator frequency is only 6 per cent from −50°C to 125°C within the power supply voltage of 2.7-5.5 V. Originality/value When the light load occurs at the output stage, the oscillator frequency will decrease as the load voltage drops. The test results shows that when the circuit works in the normal condition, the oscillator frequency is 1.5 MHz. When the load decreased, the operating frequency is dropped dramatically.

  • The resin-flowing model in prepreg lamination of print circuit board
    • Abstract: Circuit World, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose This paper aims to show a resin-flowing model based on Darcy’s law to display the flowing properties of prepreg during lamination. The conformity between the model and experimental results demonstrates that it can provide a guideline on print circuit board (PCB) lamination. Design/methodology/approach Based on the theoretical derivations of Darcy’s law, this paper made an analysis on the flow of prepreg in the pressing process, according to which a theoretical model, namely, resin-flowing model was further formulated. Findings This paper establishes a resin-flowing model, according to which two experiment-verified conclusions can be drawn: first, the resin-flowing properties of material A and B can be improved when the heating rate is between 1.5 and 2.5 min/°C; second, increased pressure gradient can add the amount of flowing resin, mainly featured by increasing pressure and reducing filled thickness of prepreg. Originality/value This model provides guidance on setting lamination parameters for most kinds of prepregs and decreasing starvation risk for PCB production.
