Alpha to Showcase Sintering Preforms at APEC 2017 Expo


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will feature its ALPHA Argomax 9000 Silver Sintering Preforms at the APEC 2017 show, to be held in Tampa, Florida from March 26–30. Alpha will be at Booth 1232.

"Up until recently, this technology has only been available in both paste and film formats, but now we are the first to introduce a sintering product in a preform format to widen our product portfolio and extend the superior capabilities of Argomax," said Julien Joguet, Alpha's Global Product Manager for Sintered Materials. "These innovative preforms deliver superior thermal conductivity, ultra-high reliability and excellent electrical conductivity, in addition to easy handling and processability."

Argomax 9000 Preforms are proving to be the most reliable die attach materials in the Power Semiconductor Industry and can be used in a range of applications from power modules to heat sink attach and automotive applications, in areas in which thermal and electrical conductivity and joint strength is crucial. The preforms are available for sampling in tape and reel format and waffle pack for standard pick and place equipment.

For more information on how ALPHA Argomax 9000 Silver Sintering Preforms can demonstrate excellent performance in large area attachment and simplify the manufacturing process, visit Alpha at APEC, Booth 1232.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
