Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions has received two awards at SNEC PV Power Expo, recognizing its high level of technological contribution to the solar energy industry. These prestigious awards were presented to Alpha Assembly Solutions by APVIA (The Asia Photovoltaic Industry Association) on April 17 and 18 in Shanghai, China.

ALPHA PV-38i Liquid Flux won two APVIA awards which were "Industrial Contribution Award" and "Technological Achievement Award". The Industrial Contribution award recognizes key PV players with outstanding business performance and industry leaders whose vision and achievements have influenced the whole PV community for the leading roles they have played in the development of the industry and the contribution they have made to the advancement of the industry in the previous year. The Technological Achievement recognizes enterprises for their scientific and technical innovation in the PV industry and their efforts in the harnessing of new technologies, new materials and new techniques for the PV products. 

“APHA PV-38i Tabbing and Stringing Flux uses the latest technology to produce the lowest solids flux in the industry and works on even hard-to-solder surfaces forming strong solder interconnects of next generation 5- and 6-busbar module designs”, said Mike Previti, Global Product Manager for Liquid Soldering Fluxes. “Alpha designed this flux specifically to be the lowest polluting spray flux in the industry, which increases spray nozzle life, decreases equipment cleaning time, and also provides excellent soldering in tabbing and stringing applications.”

About APVIA Awards

The Asian Photovoltaic Industry Association (APVIA) has launched the Asia Photovoltaic Awards named “APVIA Awards” to recognize organizations and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the photovoltaic industry through achievements in the areas of capability development or innovation. It is primarily an Asia-Pacific Award but not restricted exclusively to Asia-Pacific citizens. 

Awards Categories – The 2017 APVIA Awards will be presented in five categories –Industry, Technology, Education, Finance and Application, to organizations/institutions or individuals. These five categories will provide opportunities to honor established and emerging companies, research institutes, professionals, entrepreneurs and individuals across the entire photovoltaic industry. This will include power utilities, photovoltaic sectors as well as the merging sectors of energy efficiency, clean and renewable energy.

Under the Hood: Solder Joint Reliability

05/21/2018 | Burton Carpenter, NXP Semiconductors Inc.
It has been long established that packages using NSMD BGA pads were more resilient than ones with SMD pads to fatigue-induced solder joint cracks. However, NSMD pads in previous investigations on 292MAPBGA and 416PBGA packages failed sooner in AATS testing due to an alternate failure mode: substrate Cu trace cracks. This article looks into the effects of substrate material and package pad design on solder joint reliability of 0.8 mm pitch BGA.
