MacDermid Alpha Presents at PCIM Europe

Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronic Solutions, a leader in integrated technologies and materials for the electronics industry, will present and showcase their advanced solutions for die, package, and die top-side attach at PCIM Europe, held at the Nuremberg Exhibition Grounds, 9 - 11 May 2023. MacDermid Alpha’s expertise and product portfolio will be on display in hall 7, booth 460. Our team of experts look forward to welcoming visitors and sharing innovative solutions for increased power, range, and reliability in EVs (Electric Vehicles).  

Save the date – 10th May at 10 am, The Industry Stage 

Gyan Dutt, Strategic Marketing Manager for Semiconductor Assembly at MacDermid Alpha, will present a technical paper on the Industry Stage, hall 7, titled ‘Sintering Innovations for Power Electronics Packaging and Assembly’. Content will address different options for sinter attach layers for challenging applications beyond die attach. Gyan will cover solutions for novel form factors and processes for die top-side and module attach. Thermomechanical and power cycling reliability data for commercial modules benchmarked against solder – extending cycling improvement by as much as 10-30X will be part of the comprehensive session.  

MacDermid Alpha is powering your path to enhanced reliability of power inverters. We achieve this by improving the consistency of sintered joints and enabling higher operating temperatures. Highlighted at the show will be: 

  • Argomax ® 2148, a recent addition to the portfolio, is ideal for sintering large packages or components on gold or silver substrates. A key advantage, its firm attachment to the inverter, and ability to cope with marginal component surfaces. Utilizing a pure silver bond line, the dispensable silver sintering paste exhibits excellent bond line thickness and adhesion. Argomax 2148, delivers excellent performance and reliability for inverters in extreme temperature swings.    
  • The ATROX® range offers superior reliability and performance with rapid heat dissipation for higher efficiencies and operating temperatures. The ATROX 800HT series, a thermosetting conductive die attach adhesives with high thermal conductivity (>70 W/m-K) are designed for the no-pressure assembly of high-power exposed pad semiconductor packages. The ATROX die attach and clip attach process provides low modulus materials for large die sizes as well as superior adhesion to copper clip surfaces. A leading high thermal film with excellent bond line control, ATROX CF200-1D, is an electrically conductive die attach film with thermal conductivity of >20 W/m-K with no die tilting resulting in a high-yield assembly process.  

Julien Joguet,  Director Power Modules, Inverters, and Industrial, said, “We are excited and looking forward to engaging with visitors at this year’s PCIM to not only demonstrate our ‘right first-time’ approach but to share our knowledge having worked on applications for power electronics in EV (Electric Vehicle) applications for over 15 years.”

Akrometrix: Masters of Metrology

05/24/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At the Atlanta SMTA Expo and Tech Forum, I met Neil Hubble, president of the metrology systems provider Akrometrix. If you’re not sure exactly what metrology entails, you’re in luck. In this interview, Neil explains why metrology is becoming a critical part of PCB manufacturing. We also discuss the company’s capital equipment, testing services, and why Akrometrix counts many of the top PCB and semiconductor manufacturing companies in the world as their customers.

Shopping for a Soldering Robot

05/24/2023 | Ed Zamborsky, Thermaltronics
During factory visits, I've witnessed what’s happened to our workforce after the pandemic. Sometimes it looks like operator separation for social distancing, working extra shifts to cover for lost or missing employees due to illness, workers who now work from home, or they have simply found working no longer suits them. One possible solution when you can’t hire skilled technicians is to look at automation, particularly automation for soldering. For many it was a “feature piece” for the obligatory factory tour just to demonstrate to potential customers they are forward thinking. Now it’s a reality to solve a true workforce shortage issue. But why use a robotic soldering system?

Blackfox Shares Tips for Successful Skills Training

05/17/2023 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Successful skills training is a crucial part of the onboarding process and can take experienced staff members away from their primary jobs on the manufacturing floor. Effective training to onboard new employees can not only speed up the ramp-up times, but can also be customized to a company’s specific needs. We posed these four questions about new hire training to Sharon Montana-Beard, vice president of sales and operations at Blackfox.
