Alpha Launches PowerBond Preforms for Increased Strength and Thermal Fatigue Resistance


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, has recently introduced ALPHA PowerBond Solder Preforms for high temperature, high reliability, lead-free interconnects for automotive and power semiconductor applications.

“ALPHA PowerBond Preforms contain approximately 5-10% of antimony (Sb), which enable solder joints to have increased strength, thermal fatigue resistance and higher liquidis temperatures, compared to traditional tin/silver/copper-based lead-free systems," said Gyan Dutt, global portfolio manager for Die Attach Solutions at Alpha Assembly Solutions, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions Group of Businesses. “These preforms can also be customized with ALPHA TrueHeight Preforms technology for bond-line thickness and tilt control or can be pre-coated with ALPHA AccuFlux, an ultra-low voiding flux formulation, for difficult-to-solder surfaces."

  • ALPHA PowerBond 2110 Preforms balance high creep resistance of Sn90Sb10 system with high thermal conductivity required for power semiconductor devices.
  • ALPHA PowerBond 2100 Preforms provide highest creep resistance and tensile strength for high operating temperature applications.
  • ALPHA PowerBond 2050 Preforms expand upon industry standard Sn95Sb5 alloy to provide improved wetting characteristics.

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.
