MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions Takes the Double at Mexico Technology Awards

reading time ( Words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global provider of integrated solutions across our Circuitry, Assembly and Semiconductor businesses that offers unmatched electronics design and manufacturing capabilities, is pleased to announce that it has received two Mexico Technology Awards in the Solder Paste category ALPHA’s OM-565 HRL3 low temperature solder paste and in the Conformal Coatings category for Electrolube’s UVCLX UV curable polyurethane coating. Both awards were presented to MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions during a ceremony held during the SMTA Guadalajara Show September 21-22.

ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 low-temperature solder paste is designed to mitigate defects caused by warpage in temperature-sensitive chip-scale packages. The solder paste enables excellent wettability to minimize post-reflow defects such as Non-Wet-Open (NWO) and Head-in-Pillow (HIP). Next-generation devices require a larger footprint and thinner form factor design that offers superior processing power over existing technologies. These next-generation packages present assembly challenges at traditional SMT reflow temperatures. ALPHA OM-565 HRL3 enables peak reflow reduction to 175°C to mitigate common warpage-caused defects such as HiP and NWO and improve placement yield.

Electrolube’s UVCLX is considered a ‘greener’ coating than many others, but it also delivers powerful results. Formulated with 75% organic content, UVCLX protects electronic circuits from the harshest environments, particularly in the automotive industry where components are at high risk from chemical attack. Applied via a selective coating machine, UVCLX outperforms traditional UV curable coatings by being touch dry after only brief exposure to the correct wavelength of UV light. UVCLX guarantees a full cure in less than 24 hours due to the secondary chemical curing mechanism that ensures even shaded areas are fully cured within hours. Compared to traditional UV curing coatings, which can take weeks to fully cure and still leave some shadowed areas uncured, UVCLX ensures a much faster workflow.

It may be difficult to see bright spots in the current and recent economic climate. We have all seen the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues and, most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Interleaved back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve back contact solar cell connection. Theoretically, the contacting and wiring via the rear achieves a higher degree of efficiency by relocating all front contact grids to the rear of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main benefits. First, there is no front face shading of the cell by the connecting straps, eliminating the need to trade series resistance and losses for shadowing losses when larger connecting straps are used. Secondly, a more homogeneous-looking front of the solar module improves the aesthetics.
