AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for the electronics industry, is pleased to announce their participation in the upcoming SMTA Querétaro Chapter Expo, taking place on August 18th at Mision Grand Juriquilla. AIM will highlight V9, their new ultra-low-voiding, no clean paste, along with their full line of solder assembly materials.
Formulated to solve one of the industry’s most difficult challenges, V9 has proven to reduce voiding to as low as 1% on BGA and <5% on BTC components while exhibiting stable print performance on fine feature devices over 12 hours. V9 post-process residue is easily probed and possesses high SIR values required for high reliability applications.

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.

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.
