MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions to Present Five Papers at IPC APEX EXPO 2022


Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global supplier of integrated solutions from our Circuitry, Assembly and Semiconductor divisions that provides unmatched capabilities in electronics design and manufacturing will present five papers at the IPC APEX EXPO Technical Conference taking place January 25-27 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. 

The papers, authored by MacDermid Alpha’s leading industry experts, will discuss materials and solutions in the assembly process, PCB fabrication for next-generation technology, and materials to meet the goals of reliability, performance, cost efficiency and sustainability.

Four of the papers are part of the Assembly, Materials, and Environment Track. The focus of these presentations includes studies on material capabilities and performance attributes of conformal coatings and liquid fluxes, a comparison of vacuum soldering and conventional reflow processes and the impact on solder joint reliability and voiding, as well as a sustainability study on bio-based polymers versus synthetic materials.

A paper in the PCB Fabrication and Materials Track will cover the latest research on material performance of copper plating processes for IC substrate applications as well as the challenge of reducing costs in the manufacturing process.

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.

Optimizing Test Engineering Practices for High-Mix Electronics Manufacturing

08/01/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
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.

Time to Get Serious About CMMC Readiness
