Alpha's Mike Murphy to Present Technical Paper at Intersolar Europe


Reading time ( words)

Alpha, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and joining materials, will be a technical presenter at the upcoming Workshop on Long Term Stability of PV Modules at Intersolar Europe, taking place in Munich, Germany on June 11th.

The paper, entitled “The Impact of Soldering Materials and Process on cSi Module Reliability” will be presented by Mike Murphy, Segment Manager for PV Interconnect Materials.  His presentation will examine how the soldering materials and processes used in joining cSi solar cells can have a significant impact on the electrical and mechanical reliability of the assembled module.

The long term stability of photovoltaic modules is challenging both from a technical and economic perspective.  The workshop, organized by the PV Materials Committee of SEMI and the VDMA, is intended to identify specific R&D requirements to give more certainty to long-term performance and to hopefully eliminate some of the existing financial risk.

I recently spoke with Rob Boguski, president of Fremont, California-based Datest and an SMTA vice president and board member. Rob explained why today’s test customers are asking for more information than the traditional pass/fail, offers a preview of SMTA International, and gives an update on SMTA’s planning strategy for the next five years.

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.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
