Indium Corporation Introduces AuSn Pastes for High-Power LEDs

Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation® has expanded its portfolio of proven pastes with two new AuSn pastes designed for the higher processing temperatures and assembly needs required for use in high-power LED module array applications, such as automotive, infrastructure, and horticulture.

Indium Corporation produces a wide range of solder paste products to meet the current and evolving needs of the industry. High-power LEDs have the ability to provide much higher levels of light output than traditional LEDs while also providing higher levels of performance, leading to a longer lifetime of the device. Due to the large amount of heat generated—in such a localized area—a high-melting and high-reliability solder is required for assembly.

It is also critical to the LED assembly process that the solder interface between the diode and its substrate is void-free in order to generate a stable transmission of light and allow for the transfer of the tremendous heat generated by the diodes to maintain the temperature stability of the device.

AuLTRA™ 3.2 and AuLTRA™ 5.1 are AuSn solder pastes specifically formulated to accommodate higher processing temperatures while providing high reliability.

AuLTRA™ 3.2 offers:

  • Water-soluble flux
  • Air or nitrogen reflow
  • Superb wetting
  • Low-voiding
  • Long open life, reduced waste

AuLTRA™ 5.1 offers:

  • No-clean residue
  • Air or nitrogen reflow
  • Superb wetting
  • Low-voiding
  • Long open life, reduced waste

Both pastes are offered in a variety of AuSn alloys and powder sizes. In addition to being ideal for use in high-power LED module array applications, AuLTRA™ 3.2 and AuLTRA™ 5.1 are applicable for all AuSn paste applications as their performance has been, and continues to be, proven in the field.

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

SMTA Atlanta: Peachy in the Peach State

04/27/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
I attended SMTA Atlanta Expo and Tech Forum last week, and it’s safe to say that this industry is definitely back in business in the Peach State. The aisles were busy all day, and the presentations were well attended.

Dallas SMTA Expo: Open for Business

03/30/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007
This year’s theme was “Texas is Open for Business,” and the turnout seemed to reflect that observation. We saw a steady stream of attendees arriving throughout the day, and most of them stayed through the barbecue lunch and happy hour. Dallas SMTA Expo and Tech Forum is becoming much more than a regional show. I met exhibitors and attendees from around the southwest, and a few from across the country. The Plano Event Center has a configurable layout that can accommodate events of all sizes, and next year’s show is expected to be even bigger.
