MacDermid Alpha to Present at SNEC PV Power Expo


Reading time ( words)

The Assembly Division of MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions will be presenting a technical paper titled "Prevention of Weak Solder Joint Formation in Multi-Busbar (MBB) Interconnection" during the SNEC 13th (2019) International Photovoltaic (PV) Power Generation and Smart Energy Exhibition & Conference taking place June 3-6 in Shanghai, China. The paper will be focused on addressing the factors affecting reliability of solder joints in MBB technology.

"In multi-busbar (MBB) interconnection, between six and 15 round copper wires are soldered onto more than 50 solder pads on the front side of the solar cell. This approach reduces silver consumption for the front side metallization and increases the module efficiency by lowering series resistance and improved light harvesting," said Narahari Pujari, R&D Manager, Assembly Solutions. "However, due to reduced cross sectional area of silver pad and wire, reliability of solder joints remained one of the biggest concerns in this technology. Lowered peel strength, wire crippling and cold or dry solder joint formation are the most common issues."

Pujari's presentation is going to review and analyze the formation of weak joints and ways to obviate the same.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 2)

07/24/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
In the last three to five years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of low melting point alloys for SMT applications. Typically, the compositions are around the eutectic bismuth-tin alloy, perhaps with additions of other elements to increase the robustness of certain alloy properties. Now, there are several new products on the market and numerous ongoing reliability projects in industry consortia.

Approaches to Overcome Nodules and Scratches on Wire-Bondable Plating on PCBs

07/17/2019 | Young K. Song and Vanja Bukva, Teledyne Dalsa Inc., and Ryan Wong, FTG Circuits
Initially adopted internal specifications for acceptance of printed circuit boards (PCBs) used for wire bonding was that there were no nodules or scratches allowed on the wirebond pads when inspected under 20X magnification. This paper details if wire bonding could be successfully performed over nodules and scratches and if there was a dimensional threshold where wire bonding could be successful.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.
