Blog

Welcome to our new Instron Community Blog hosted by Instron. It is a compilation of the freshest, brightest, most-talented minds that Instron has to offer. The world of materials science is so vast and encompasses the broadest range of industries, materials, and challenges that no one person can possibly possess all the knowledge required to be the resident expert – or master of materials science. It takes a small army behind the scenes collaborating and sharing technical know-how, experiences, and ideas to present the most accurate, relevant, and timely information to you – our readers. 

We invite you to tell us who you are, share your stories and talk about your experiences. Join the Instron Community. 



Micro Three-Point Bend Testing for Microelectronics

Reliability analysis of electronic packages and components is a critical step in microelectronics, as these packages are widely used in portable devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. Studying electrical performance may not be enough, as a package’s mechanical characterization can directly or indirectly impact reliability of a finished product. Three-point bend tests are performed to understand the strength of chip packages, such as chip-on-film (COF), integrated circuits (IC), and ball grid arrays (BGAs).
