Alpha Assembly Solutions to Feature Void Reduction, Low-Temp Tech at IPC APEX EXPO 2018


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will feature its latest low temperature solder and void reduction solutions technologies at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO 2018 trade show in San Diego, California. Alpha will be at Booth 727.

Alpha's recently launched low temperature solder paste, ALPHA OM-550, will be the focus among its Low Temperature Solder Solutions. "OM-550 provides another low temperature solution to customers looking for SAC305-type mechanical and thermal reliability in a low temperature alloy," said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for the Americas. "This is a first rate paste that provides customers with efficiencies in both energy and cost while improving BGA mechanical reliability compared to other low temp alloys."

Alpha's void reduction solutions technology combines several of Alpha’s innovative products and assembly processes. "Alpha has developed a reliable low void technology system for bottom terminated components which has shown to dramatically decrease voiding," said Jerry Sidone, Product Manager for Engineered Materials at Alpha Assembly Solutions. "We will discuss this technology and provide data that addresses the challenges of voiding and managing thermal reliability in the paper presentation, Novel Approach to Void Reduction Using Microflux Coated Solder Preforms for QFN/BTC Packages that Generate Heat."

The paper will be delivered on Tuesday, February 27 at the Bottom Terminated Components Session from 1:30–3:00 pm.

Alpha will be co-exhibiting in Booth #727 with MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions. Both companies are a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses. Please visit us there.

Strategies for Choosing Solder Paste for Successful Electronics Assembly

08/10/2018 | Jason Fullerton, Alpha Assembly Solutions
One common question from solder customers is, "How do I test and evaluate new solder pastes?" Although that seems like it should be a straightforward question with an easy answer, this could not be further from the truth. This article tells more about this, and how to best select solder pastes for your product.

Evaluating the Impact of Powder Size and Stencils on Solder Paste Transfer Efficiency

07/31/2018 | T. O’Neill, C. Tafoya, and G. Ramirez, AIM Metals and Alloys
Building upon an earlier study that focused on solder paste powder size, room-temperature aging and PCB pad and aperture designs, this study continues to investigate powder mesh size, but also examines stencil surface treatments and stencil foil tension.
