MacDermid Alpha to Exhibit, Present Five Technology Papers at SMTA International


Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, leaders in the production of specialty chemistries, electronic soldering and bonding materials, will exhibit its latest interconnect technologies and present five technical papers during the SMTA International Virtual Conference and Exhibition from September 28 – 30, 2020.

Three of the MacDermid Alpha brands, MacDermid Enthone, Alpha, and Kester will showcase their latest solutions for electronics manufacturers. MacDermid Enthone will feature Systek SAP, UVF 100 and ETS 1200, its most recent and innovative processes in its IC Substrate Metallization offerings. Alpha will promote ALPHA OM-220, an ultra-low temperature solder that enables peak reflow temperatures below 150°C, making it ideal for soldering heat sensitive components. Kester will feature its newest solder paste NP505-HR, a zero-halogen, lead-free, no-clean solder paste formula developed specifically for high reliability applications.

Two papers of the papers presented will focus on Substrates and PCB Technology. Sean Flueriel, Research and Development Chemist will present “Pit Resistant Acid Copper Electroplating Process for Flash Etching”. Carmichael Gugliotti, Applications Specialist, will present “Single Step Metallization Process for the Filling of Through Holes with Copper.”

Two of the papers will have an assembly focus. As part of the Flux, Solder, Adhesives track, Dr. Karen Tellefsen will present “Advanced SIR Testing for Trapped Solder Paste Flux Residue.”  Dr. Morgana Ribas will present “High-Reliability, Fourth Generation Low-Temperature Solder Alloys” in the Lead-Free & Low-Temp Soldering Technologies track. In addition, Lenora Clark, Director of OEM Applications for Elements Solutions Automotive, will present “A Cruise Through Automotive Safety Systems.”

I recently spoke with Rob Boguski, president of Fremont, California-based Datest and an SMTA vice president and board member. Rob explained why today’s test customers are asking for more information than the traditional pass/fail, offers a preview of SMTA International, and gives an update on SMTA’s planning strategy for the next five years.

Four Silver Linings in the Stormy Clouds of Pandemic, Supply Chain, and Inflation

09/14/2022 | Dr. Ronald C. Lasky, Indium Corp.
It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
