Alpha to Present at South East Asia Technical Training Conference on Electronics Assembly in Penang

Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will be presenting two technical papers, "Flip-Chip LED Assembly – Processes and Challenges" and "LED Assembly on Flexible Substrates" at the South East Asia Technical Training Conference on Electronics Assembly Technologies 2017, which will be hosted by SMTA from March 28-30, 2017 at the Oliver Tree Hotel in Penang, Malaysia.

The paper titled "Flip-Chip LED Assembly – Processes and Challenges" will discuss the effect of application process, process settings and solder paste on assembly outputs. This study is relevant for LED packaging and LED module assembly makers who use flip chip for automotive, backlight and general lighting applications.

The second paper titled "LED Assembly on Flexible Substrates" will provide insights into the world of LEDs on flexible circuits. The presentation includes end-applications and drivers for LED on flex including material stack selection particularly, details on low- to mid-temp alloys and interconnects on both polyimide and PET based circuits. Additionally, the impact/performance of typical material stacks in the form of applications studies will be reviewed and lastly the future of flexible circuitry form factor evolution will be discussed.
