Alpha's Narahari Pujari to Present at 2017 Metallization and Interconnection Workshop


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions is participating in the upcoming Metallization and Interconnection Workshop taking place October 23–24 in Kostanz, Germany, where global experts will discuss status, trends and new product roadmaps for crystalline silicon (cSi) solar cells.

Narahari Pujari, R&D Manager for Alpha Assembly Solutions, part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses, will present a technical paper titled "Non-Eutectic Low Melting Temperature Alloys for Standard cSi Interconnection", which focuses on the expected changes in worldwide regulations that will require lead-bearing solders be replaced with less toxic alternatives.

"Lead-based solders have been used predominantly in PV applications due to their sufficiently low melting points and ability to make good, reliable solder joints between busbars and PV ribbon," says Pujari. "The critical components to consider for transitioning to lead-free solders are cost-efficiency and repeatable high performance, which are necessary to mirror the properties of lead-based solders currently in use."

Pujari's presentation will report on new non-eutectic alloys for tinning PV ribbon and cSi interconnection that were tested and benchmarked against standard tin-lead alloys for thermal and mechanical properties as well as functional performance.

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
