mAgic® Sinter Pastes for high performance applications

Higher power densities come along with a higher operation temperature. At the same time, devices must last longer. Silver sintered pastes offer a robust lead-free alternative to solder pastes increasing the lifetime of the device up to 10 times.

mAgic® Sinter Pastes

Major trends in electronic applications involve operation temperatures above 150°C, increased power density and longer lifetime. This requires a high melting temperature and fatigue resistance, improved thermal conductivity and reduced electrical resistivity of the connecting material.

Silver based sintering technology is suited for high operation temperatures due to its pure Ag die attach layer. They also provide excellent thermal conductivity and at the same time a longer lifetime compared to solder.

The Heraeus mAgic® series sinter material is suitable for power applications on DCB (pressure sintering) as well as for lead frame packages (non-pressure sintering).

The special series for pressure sintering mAgic® ASP 043 shows an increased lifetime up to 10 times more compared to conventional solder in power cycling. As well, it requires lower process pressure compared to other sintering materials.

For non-pressure sintering applications, sinter mAgic® ASP 295 series is a lead-free substitute for high melting point solders. The products are available for the usage in semiconductor applications. These come as print or dispense version and offer high thermal conductivity for lead frame and LED packages.
