QorIQ processors support
non-RoHS aerospace processes

Under the framework agreement between e2v and Freescale, e2v is offering non-RoHS qualified QorIQ processors for the aerospace and defence industries which have both a demand and approval to use non-RoHS electronic components.
The processor packages have undergone de-balling and re-balling processes, and are tested for coplanarity compliance on large packages in excess of 1000 balls, pitch accuracy, lid attach reliability issues and occurrence of whiskers around the balls near the package edges and between lid and substrate.
Through process optimisation, post-process structural analysis and full post-process part qualification, including temperature cycling and SAM, e2v can now offer fully qualified P2020 QorIQ processors with SnPb lead finish. This will soon also include P4080 processors.
"This puts PowerPC in a position to offer to a broad range of PowerPC or latest generation of QorIQ processors in high reliability versions with SnPb lead finish, without sacrificing reliability or system performance," said Eric Marcelot – Head of Semiconductor Marketing at e2v.
The P2020 QorIQ processors are produced in an organic plastic package with wire bonding technology, while the P4080 QorIQ processor is built using flip-chip technology on organic substrate with a top-lid and built-in under-lid heat spreader.
"The recently announced e2v PC8378 and PC8379 are built with similar package structure as P2020, and so will be offered shortly by e2v in leaded package options," said Marcelot.
