2. Electromagnetic properties of signal conductor, signal distortion, crosstalk noise, reflections.
3. Thermal aspects of housing design, reliability, testing, components and equipment of different quality levels.
4. Current and future trends in packaging technologies.
5. First level of encapsulation - chip-level encapsulation. Wirebonding, TAB, Flip-Chip.
6. Types of first level housings in terms of materials used - properties, limitations.
7. Second level cases.
8. Electric housing design and its attributes. Signal distribution, energy distribution, noise.
9. Case heat design and its attributes. Basic mechanisms of heat transfer in shells.
10. Measurement of chip temperature in the housing, basics of package cooling.
11. Housing reliability and factors that influence it. Reliability metrology.
12. Climatic interactions. Thermal stress and fatigue caused by thermal stress.
13. Processes connected with production of cases.
14. Techniques and theoretical tools associated with the evaluation of packages quality.
