Alpha to Feature Preforms Sintering Technology at APEC POWER EXPO 2016

Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering materials, plans to feature the ALPHA Argomax Ag sinter product range at the 2016 APEC show, booth #1561, to be held in Long Beach, California from March 20– 24. 

Alpha will demonstrate its new Argomax® 9000 Silver Sintering Preforms which is a world first for the Power Semiconductor Industry. These innovative preforms deliver superior thermal conductivity, ultra-high reliability and excellent electrical conductivity. They have shown excellent performance in large area attachment and can help to simplify the manufacturing process.

“This year we launched one of our most innovative products, the ALPHA Argomax 9000 preforms”, said Julien Joguet, Alpha’s Global Product Manager for Sintered Materials. “Up until now, ALPHA Argomax has only been available in both paste and film formats, but now we are the first to introduce a sintering product in a preform format to widen our product portfolio and extend the superior capabilities of Argomax”.

Argomax 9000 preforms are proving to the most reliable die attach materials on the market. It can be used in a range of applications from power modules to Automotive applications, in areas in which thermal and electrical conductivity and joint strength is crucial. The preforms are available for sampling in tape and reel format and waffle pack for standard pick and place equipment.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.

True or False: CFX Edition

02/06/2020 | David Bergman, vice president, Standards and Training, IPC
Early in 2019, IPC published IPC-2591— Connected Factory Exchange (CFX), Version 1.0. This standard was developed by the IPC Connected Factory Initiative Subcommittee over a two-year period to address issues with machine-to-machine communication and provide the electronics manufacturing industry with a true plug-and-play system for any company to achieve Industry 4.0.
