Alpha Intros Ultra-Low Voiding Solder Paste for Increased Reliability


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, has recently introduced ALPHA OM-358, a lead-free, zero-halogen solder paste designed to provide ultra-low voiding performance on all component types, including bottom terminated components.

"ALPHA OM-358 was designed to enhance process benefits through best-in-class voiding performance," said Paul Salerno, Global Portfolio Manager for SMT Assembly at Alpha Assembly Solutions, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions Group of Businesses. "When using a high soak profile, ALPHA OM-358 produces an average voiding of below 10%, with consistent control of void distribution for increased process stability, elimination of rework, and enhanced electrical and thermal performance of a customer’s end product."

ALPHA OM-358 exhibits excellent resistance to electrochemical migration on fine pitch components which makes it ideal for high reliability applications such as Automotive (powertrain, in-cabin electronics & sensors), LED, Medical and Defense.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
