Alpha to Feature Innovative Inks, Pastes and Adhesives at Upcoming IDTechEx Show in Berlin


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions is introducing a robust portfolio of product solutions for flexible, formable and printed electronics at the IDTechEx Show taking place on May 10th-11th in Berlin, Germany. Alpha will be exhibiting jointly with MacDermid Autotype, under the MacDermid Performance Solutions business at Booth #J23.

The ALPHA Product offering includes Silver Inks, Carbon Inks, Dielectric Inks, Solder Pastes and Electronic Adhesives that meet the demanding performance and reliability requirements of flexible and printed electronic circuits.  These materials are ideal for:

  • Flexible PCBs for assembly of conventional devices and packages such as ICs, Processors or MEMS on circuited flexible substrates.
  • Printed Electronic Circuitry for fabricating membrane touch switches, sensors, RFIDs, etc.

“The high performance, flexibility and enhanced durability of Alpha’s new products are ideal for applications where consistency and convenience are important, such as membrane touch switches, automotive and other industrial controls”, said Dr. Bawa Singh, EVP of Technology and Corporate Development for Alpha Assembly Solutions. “This provides a substantial benefit on performance and cost to designers who are looking for high reliability materials to enable their sophisticated multilayer designs.”

Alpha’s sister company, MacDermid Autotype, will also be exhibiting within the same space, located at Booth #J23.  They are a global supplier of high quality precision coated films and materials for use in Electronics, Automotive and Printing industries.

Under the Hood: Solder Joint Reliability

05/21/2018 | Burton Carpenter, NXP Semiconductors Inc.
It has been long established that packages using NSMD BGA pads were more resilient than ones with SMD pads to fatigue-induced solder joint cracks. However, NSMD pads in previous investigations on 292MAPBGA and 416PBGA packages failed sooner in AATS testing due to an alternate failure mode: substrate Cu trace cracks. This article looks into the effects of substrate material and package pad design on solder joint reliability of 0.8 mm pitch BGA.
