MacDermid Alpha Introduces Innovative Solder Paste Enabling Next Generation High Density Assembly Designs


Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions, a global leader in soldering and electronics assembly technologies, is pleased to launch ALPHA® OM-372, an ultra-fine feature, lead-free, no-clean solder paste designed to provide ultra-high electrochemical reliability on fine pitched, low standoff components. 

Developed to respond to the demands of increased miniaturization, ALPHA OM-372 is formulated to deliver low post reflow residue and superior transfer efficiency on fine feature pads as low as 80x130µm (008004).  ALPHA OM-372 shows excellent results in advanced SIR, demonstrating excellent electrochemical reliability with no denditric growth on low standoff packages. The solder paste is optimized for fine feature applications requiring Type 5 and Type 6 powders.

The combination of these best-in-class features as well as excellent HiP and NWO performance makes ALPHA OM-372 ideal for a broad range of high board density applications requiring smaller, thinner, and lighter form factor components, such as those found in mobile, wearable, and computer devices.

“ALPHA OM-372 serves a critical need as miniaturization drives complexity of board designs” said Paul Salerno, Global Portfolio Manager for SMT Assembly. “This paste not only meets the most challenging  fine-feature printing and reflow conditions, but provides superior electrochemical reliability performance required by these complex assemblies”.

The message can’t be emphasized enough: Producing IC substrates overseas weakens America’s position and national security. In this frank discussion with Will Marsh, president of PCBAA, he talks about his efforts to educate government policymakers on the dire need to consider the entire microelectronics ecosystem. There’s power in numbers, Will says, and he sees the association’s efforts making a difference.

Advanced Packaging Gets an Additive Upgrade

11/08/2022 | Art Wall, NextFlex
The recent approval of the CHIPS Act has reignited the U.S. semiconductor industry and shone a spotlight on the intricacies involved in chip manufacturing. As new technological innovations—such as 5G, IoT, AI, automotive and high-performance computing—come to market, they’re pushing chip manufacturing and integration capabilities. They demand more performance which leads to added complexity in an already extremely complicated process. All this requires a fundamental shift in the way that semiconductors are manufactured and integrated.

Four Silver Linings in the Stormy Clouds of Pandemic, Supply Chain, and Inflation

09/14/2022 | Dr. Ronald C. Lasky, Indium Corp.
It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced 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 a 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.
