MacDermid Alpha to Present High Performance Solder Alloys for Automotive Applications at HiTEN 2022

Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global supplier of integrated solutions from our Circuitry, Assembly and Semiconductor divisions, will present its High Performance Solder Alloys for Automotive Applications at the International Conference and Exhibition on High Temperature Electronics Network (HiTEN) in Oxford, UK from the 18th-20th July.

Alan Plant, Regional Applications Manager – Europe, will deliver the paper ‘Unveiling High Performance Solder Alloys for Automotive Applications’ during the conference. Automotive powertrain related electronics systems are regularly exposed to high temperatures (>120°C) and vibration. Joining materials used in these systems must exhibit the highest level of mechanical reliability under these harsh conditions. The paper will discuss the latest advances in high performance solder alloys designed to maintain high electrochemical reliability and high thermal and electrical conductivity in these extreme temperature and vibration conditions.

MacDermid Alpha’s range of high reliability solutions for automotive applications includes; solder paste chemistries and solid solders designed for resistance to both thermo-mechanical fatigue and electrochemical migration, leading high reliability adhesives, underfills and edgebonds which provide significant mechanical reinforcement to soldered components, and Conformal Coatings that offer high levels of resistance to humidity and condensation as well as resisting the most extreme thermal shock conditions.

The HiTEN Conference is a unique forum bringing together researchers and practitioners in academia and industry, focused on all styles of practical high temperature electronics design and implementation approaches. Alan Plant’s presentation will take place on Monday 18th July at 2:45pm.

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.

Optimizing Test Engineering Practices for High-Mix Electronics Manufacturing

08/15/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
For PCB and assembly manufacturers, test engineering has become a critical factor in enhancing the profitability of new product introductions (NPIs). Given the trend toward high-mix, low-volume production, the journey from design data to an automated PCB testing program must be quicker and more efficient than ever before. In this article, we will discuss how to optimize the efficiency of the test engineering process in accordance with these new market realities.
