Nihon Superior to Highlight TempSave Soldering Materials and SN100CV P608 Paste at SMTAI


Reading time ( words)

Nihon Superior Co. Ltd., an advanced joining material supplier, is pleased to announce that it will exhibit its TempSave series in Booth #3301 at the SMTA International Exposition, scheduled to take place November 3-4, 2021 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN. The company also will showcase SN100CV P608 solder paste.

Nihon Superior’s TempSave™ series of low temperature soldering materials has been designed to address the industry’s goals of reduced peak reflow temperature to reduce defects contributing to package warpage, reduce energy consumption during the reflow process, and avoid potential damage to temperature sensitive devices. TempSave B58 is a eutectic SnBi alloy with a melting point of 139°C while TempSave B37 is a ductile hypoeutectic SnBi alloy and does not contain Ag. 

High bismuth containing alloys are known to be brittle and therefore poor in drop shock performance. However, TempSave B37 has outstanding drop performance, even dramatically outperforming SAC305. The halogen-free P610 flux medium is specifically designed for Bi alloys.  The TempSave B37 P610 solder paste can be reflowed with a peak temperature of 190°C.  Additionally, TempSave B37 is available as a flux cored wire.

SN100CV® P608 is a completely halogen free, lead-free, no-clean solder paste. Unlike silver- containing alloys that derive their strength from a dispersion of fine particles of eutectic Ag3Sn, SN100CV gains its strength from solute atoms in the tin matrix of the joint. Although silver-free, in tensile tests the SN100CV alloy matches the strength of SAC305 while maintaining a high level of resistance to impact loading. LF-C2 is a high reliability lead-free alloy as it uses both dispersion and solid solution strengthening. With a liquidus temperature of 213°C it can be reflowed at a lower temperature than SAC305.

The P608 flux medium provides wetting comparable with that of halogen containing paste even though it is completely halogen-free.  SN100CV P608 and LF-C2 both deliver excellent performance over a wide range of component types and process parameters.

Nihon Superior continues to offer solutions to the challenges facing the electronics industry, such as improvements in reliability, thermally stable joining, and lead-free die attach.

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.
