Alpha to Showcase Automotive Electronics Materials at Auto Tech Expo 2017 in China


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will be showcasing a full range of materials for high reliability automotive electronics at China (Chongqing) International Automotive Technology Expo 2017 (Auto Tech) from March 22-24 in Chongqing, China.

This includes ALPHA InnoLot ultra high reliability alloy, which has been designed to withstand the extreme operating temperatures that automotive electronics are exposed to within the engine bay. In addition, ALPHA Argomax products will be highlighted, which have the highest level of performance and reliability and can be used in the IGBT die attach and heat sink for electric vehicles.

"As the automotive industry demands higher reliability performance, Alpha has developed total process solutions for In-Cabin Electronics, Powertrain/Chassis, Peripheral Vision & Detection Systems and Exterior Lighting that will improve manufacturing efficiency and reduce warranty costs in automotive assemblies," said Steve Dowds, Director of Automotive OEM Marketing for Alpha, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses. "We're already anticipating where the automotive technology will lead and are working with R&D to develop industry-changing material innovations for automotive customers."

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.

Improving Solder Paste Printing

12/12/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Of the three elements involved in the solder paste printing process—stencil, solder paste, and printer—the stencil is considered one of the major factors affecting the transfer efficiency, accuracy, and consistency, of solder pastes into the pads, especially with the continuing trend towards miniaturization.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.
