WP1: Coordination & Management
During this task, that will run from the start of the project until its end, the required technical support and coordination will be conducted.
WP2: Generation of specification & requirements
The objective of this WP is to generate data on the overall specifications and requirements concerning all the technical implementation of the project such as drawing and requirements of the solder powder production line, performance requirements of solder pastes, specifications for the PCB assembly etc.
WP3: Development & integration of atomization machine
The purpose of this WP is to design and build the modified atomisation production line that will be able to produce solder spheres as well as to optimise yield both in terms of achieving the best particle size distribution and minimal oxide content.
WP4: Engineered design of solder paste formulation
The objective of this WP is to design and integrate the best coating chemistry for protection of the solder spheres that will be used in the coating sub-assembly. Furthermore, the formulation and testing of solder pastes will take place in this WP.
WP5: PCB assembly
The first target of this WP will be the utilization of the FineSol products produced in the previous WP, in the PCB assembly industry. The miniaturized boards will then be inspected by utilizing various NDT methods and tested and evaluated in respect of QC/QA.
WP6: Demonstration activities
During this phase of the project all the technologies that have been implemented and developed previously will be demonstrated in relevant operational environment to prove their feasibility and sustainability for industrial adoption.
WP7: LCA and standardization
In this WP theoretical tools for prediction and assessment of the developed methods and the produced materials will be developed and validated. A completed LCA analysis has been foreseen to define the energy and environmental profile of the new processes will be performed according to ISO 14040. Moreover, standardization process will take place.
WP8: Dissemination and exploitation of results
The benefits of the developed technology and knowledge beyond will be broadcast from the consortium to potential user communities.All project results will be processed and compiled into a protectable form and all necessary patents and copyrights will be filed.
