Abstract

For adhesion management of circuitry and dielectric organic films to ceramic chip carriers, it is imperative that moisture (bound vs. free) content be understood and quantitatively controlled. A rapid, non-destructive, operator-independent moisture analysis of inorganic chip carriers is obtained by using the principles of pulsed nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
