Alpha to Present Papers on Reliability at SMTA China South Technical Conference


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will be presenting two technical papers titled "Thermal and Mechanical Reliability of Low-Temperature Solder Alloys for Handheld Devices" and "High Reliability Interconnects for High Power LED Assembly" at SMTA China South Technical Conference on August 31, 2016.

The first technical paper, titled "Thermal and Mechanical Reliability of Low-Temperature Solder Alloys for Handheld Devices" will be presented by Andy Yuen, Technical Services Director of Alpha Assembly Solutions Southern China. Andy will discuss the use of micro-additives in eutectic Sn-Bi alloys to improve thermal fatigue and mechanical shock properties for handheld devices.

"We developed a new low temp, Pb-free, no-silver alloy with enhanced mechanical properties, particularly higher tensile strength and impact energy, which resulted in improved drop shock performance over standard SnBi alloy systems," said Andy. "The alloy is capable of delivering high reliability performance at lower soldering temperatures, leading to increased throughput and production value in your assembly process."

The second paper titled "High Reliability Interconnects for High Power LED Assembly" will be presented by Jackson Chan, Senior Technical Services Manager of Alpha Assembly Solutions. The topic addresses the need and impact for higher reliability interconnects for LED based outdoor and commercial lighting. The presentation will focus on the results of a recent assembly and reliability study of high power ceramic LEDs on aluminum metal core PCBs, and detail the impact of solder alloys on reliability.
