Power your Performance with Silver Sintering

Electronic devices continue to shrink in size and at the same time increase in power. Higher power densities increases device operating temperature while requiring greater reliability for longer device lifetime. To meet all these market challenges, new processes and materials are necessary.

Sintering - a real alternative to soldering


Sintering technology is a real alternative to conventional soldering process of electronic manufacturing. Especially to meet the impending challenge of higher power, higher reliability with high temperatures, this technology will help you to be ready for future electronic products.

Silver sintering for high performance applications

Silver-based sintering technology is suitable for devices with high operation temperatures requiring fast heat dissipation. Compared to conventional solder process, Ag sintering produces excellent thermal conductive interconnection and up to 5x higher reliability.

Die attachment by silver sintering has huge potential in reducing total manufacturing cost. No after-process cleaning is required. Chips can be placed closer together.
