ALPHA InnoLot Telecore HF-850 Cored Solder Wire Increases Reliability in Automotive Electronics

Reading time ( words)

Alpha, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering materials, has specially engineered its Telecore HF-850 Cored Solder Wire with InnoLot alloy to increase reliability to under hood electronics. With warranty claims and the life-span of electronic assemblies in automotive vehicles a top concern for Automotive Electronics Manufacturers, it is more important than ever that under hood electronics can withstand the most demanding conditions.

HF-850 provides the best-in-class soldering performance for tip temperatures ranging from 320°C to 420°C applications and offers excellent performance in various applications including point, drag and automated robotic soldering. The wire also leaves excellent joint cosmetics due to its clear, non-tacky residue. Alongside its clear appearance, making inspection easier, the residue also passes the most demanding electrical reliability testing.

ALPHA® Telecore HF-850 is the fastest wetting and lowest spattering Halogen and Halide Free cored wire offering from Alpha. HF-850 combined with the InnoLot alloy is the perfect solution for Automotive Power train and Chassis applications where electronics will be exposed to harsh operating conditions. The InnoLot alloy is designed to provide increased reliability to solder joints which are subjected to high temperatures and harsh vibrations.

Bernice Chung, Alpha’s Global Product Manager for Cored Wire comments, “InnoLot Telecore HF-850 completes Alphas range of high operating temperature automotive assembly solutions, making Alpha unique in providing the full range of soldering process materials with the InnoLot alloy”.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
