Alpha Intros Low-Temp Solder Paste at productronica China 2018


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will be introducing its new low temperature solder paste at productronica China in Shanghai from March 14-16, 2018. 

Alpha's revolutionary ALPHA OM-550 HRL1 low temperature, high reliability solder paste will be highlighted at the show. The ALPHA HRL1 alloy was designed to improve thermal cycling performance in low temperature assemblies. The chemistry and alloy pairing is revolutionary as it reduces the soldering temperature required for SAC alloys by 50°C, while dramatically reducing power consumption and carbon emissions.  The ALPHA HRL1 alloy enables assemblers to have a cost efficient, highly reliable soldering process with up to 99% less warpage and significantly fewer defects. It shows the best compatibility with SAC alloys vs. other low temperature SnBi alloys.

Additionally, ALPHA OM-550 has the characteristics of a modern solder paste designed for motherboards but with the ability to reflow at lower temperatures, therefore minimizing Head-in-Pillow and NWO defects in complex assemblies.

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.
