MacDermid Alpha Presents Technical Paper at SMTA Penang Chapter

Reading time ( words)

The Assembly Division of MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a world leader in the production of electronics soldering and bonding materials, will present the technical paper: “Edge Bonding as Viable Reinforcement For Solder Joints in High Reliability Applications” at the SMTA Penang Chapter Expo & Technical Forum 2022 taking place from September 21 - 22 in Penang, Malaysia.

The paper will explore the feasibility of the edge bonding process to further strengthen assembled smBGA packages with high reliability solder joints. This ability can improve the thermal fatigue resistance of these assembled packages. Experimental data will be presented for validation of this reinforcement capability.

MacDermid Alpha’s range of ALPHA HiTech Edgebond products are one component, heat curable epoxies, designed to be dispensed on the corners of the BGA. The cured Edgebond helps to strengthen the soldered assembled component so it can pass reliability tests such as Drop Shock, Impact Bend and Thermal Cycle (TCT).

Jimmy Shu, Product Manager - Adhesives and Encapsulants, Circuit Board Assembly at MacDermid Alpha, will present the paper at 2:00pm on Wednesday, September 21st in Eastin Hotel Penang.

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.

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.
