MacDermid Alpha offers a diverse portfolio of material solutions that significantly increases an electric vehicle‘s range, power, and efficiency. The Alpha Argomax suite of advanced sintering products provides the ability for high power switching applications to achieve the highest power density and lowest electrical resistance, while providing an unprecedented improvement in power cycling reliability.
“Technologies such as silicon carbide and silicon rely on sinter silver interconnects for die attach, wire bond replacement and packaged device attach,” said Paul Koep, Business Development Manager, Power Electronics. “Argomax for die attach, wire bond replacement, and substrate attach provides the most advanced thermal solution possible. For power switching applications based on packaged sintered devices, Argomax is being used as the package to heat spreader interconnect as well. This total sintered solution also yields an order of magnitude increase in power cycling endurance and the highest current density.”
Customers can also learn how to benefit from the company’s network of equipment partners, who have developed sintering systems, which achieve the highest throughput and high yield. “Our approach is to support customers by developing sintering processes that fit their material set, enabling a robust and sustainable manufacturing process,” said Koep.
