MacDermid Alpha to Present Original Research at IPC APEX Conference and Expo 2020


Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, leaders in innovative electronic interconnect technologies, will feature three original research presentations during this year’s IPC APEX Conference and Expo, February 1-6, in San Diego, California.

MacDermid Alpha will present three papers during the technical conference. On Tuesday, February 4, Dr. Karen Tellefsen, Senior Scientist, will present "Advanced SIR Testing for Trapped Solder Paste Flux Residue." This paper will cover the importance of developing an SIR/ECM test methodology to support the development and implementation of new solder pastes being developed to provide better electrochemical reliability to meet the challenges of expanding BTC use in electronics assembly.

On Wednesday, February 5, Dr. Saminda Dharmarathna, Senior Research Scientist, will present "Acid Copper Electroplating Processes With Excellent V-Pit Resistance for Flash Etching." Sam will discuss a one-step DC copper plating process allowing excellent via fill and through hole capabilities in a single plating bath for core layers of HDI and IC substrates.

Lenora Clark, Director of Autonomous Driving and Safety Technology for MacDermid Alpha Automotive Solutions, will present on Thursday, February 6, on "Material Considerations for Automotive RADAR Designs." Clark’s paper will cover the importance of chemical process changes and material considerations to meet the reliability requirements of RADAR module builds. “The systems respond to navigation challenges which often remove the driver from the decision-making process.” said Clark. “Due to this, the reliability of advanced safety systems is critical.”

The use of low temperature solders will be the focus of the poster presentation, "Using Low Temperature Solder to Attach Brass Parts to a Copper Pad," by Dr. Traian Cucu, G.A.T.E Leader at MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions. This poster will explore the advantages and challenges of joint formation using low temperature solders as pertains to attachment of brass components to a pad.

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
