Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will exhibit its innovative assembly and connecting materials for the automotive market at the 2018 SMTA Guadalajara Exhibition and Tech Forum being held November 14-15 at the Expo Guadalajara in Guadalajara, Mexico. 

As the electronic content of automobiles continues to expand, Alpha is engineering materials to meet changing needs of the automotive industry.  For in-cabin electronics, Alpha will promote its low-temperature solder pastes, such ALPHA OM-550, and its high-performance fluxes, including ALPHA EF-6000 and ALPHA EF-6808HF.  During the expo, Alpha will have copies for review of I-Connect007’s The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to... Low Temperature Soldering which was recently published and written by low-temperature solder experts from Alpha. 

For electronic systems with higher reliability and safety requirements, Alpha will feature its family of low voiding, high reliability solder alloys and solder pastes including its new ALPHA® OM-358, OM-353,CVP-390, and InnoLot alloy. “Both the automotive electronics assembly market in Mexico and the electrification of automobiles continue to expand at a rapid pace,“ said Robert Wallace, Regional Marketing Manager for the Americas, “Alpha has products, processes, and support teams that can meet our customers‘ needs for performance, reliability, and low-cost of ownership.“

Alpha will also highlight its Recycling Services program. Alpha recycles scrap solder paste, debris, dross, and other tin-bearing materials from manufacturers throughout North America, and recently expanded its recycling capabilities throughout Mexico, having received an export license from SEMARNAT, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Mexico, to handle and transport nationalized scrap material.  As North America’s largest solder recycler, Alpha takes pride in having the safest, most efficient, environmentally-compliant recycling solution that sends no materials to landfills.

Investigation on the Assembly Process for m03015 and a Brief Look at m0201 Components

11/14/2018 | David Geiger, Robert Pennings, and Jane Feng, Flex
Components continue to shrink in the SMT world, and the next evolution of passive components includes m03015 (009005) and m0201 (008004). The m03015 and the m0201 components will see primary adoption in products that require further miniaturization, which would be SiPs. These modules would then be assembled into products through attachment, another assembly, or via other interconnect methods. This article explores the development of an assembly process (SMT only) for the m03015 component.
