Abstract:
Nowadays, solder pastes are widely used to attach the chips on the substrates for power applications. However, this process suffers three major drawbacks. The first one is the removal of flux residues which requires a delicate cleaning step and uses expensive chemicals. The second one is the yield loss due to the splattering of solder during vacuum reflow. Last but not least, binder of solder paste is made of natural substances that vary from batch to batch requiring requalification from time to time.
