Alpha to present technical papers on LED materials and assembly techniques at LED A.R.T. Symposium

Oct. 27, 2015
Somerset, NJ – Alpha, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, will exhibit and present technical papers at the LED Assembly, Reliability, Testing Symposium to be held November 17-19 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Amit Patel, Project Manager, Engineer – LED for Alpha, will present his paper, Characterization and Optimization of Board Warpage for Linear LED Lighting Assemblies, on Tuesday, November 17th at 11:00AM. His presentation will cover board warpage issues faced by manufacturers of LED T-8 tubes and ways of overcoming these issues.

LED Die Attach: Considerations will also be presented on Tuesday, November 17th at 3:30PM by Gyan Dutt, Technical Marketing Manager – LED for Alpha. Gyan discusses the varied die attach requirements of multiple LED device structures and applications, and LED die attach material solutions for these needs.

“Alpha is at the forefront of developing and implementing advanced electronic and thermal interconnect material products and technologies in the LED industry, from wafer level to system level interconnects,” said Ravi Bhatkal, Vice President, Energy Technologies at Alpha. “We are delighted to participate in the SMTA LED A.R.T. Symposium and share our findings and insights.”

Alpha will also be exhibiting at the symposium, presenting a comprehensive product line for LED applications. Alpha offers an efficient and reliable solution for every bonding event throughout your assembly process from Die Attach & Package, Package on Board, Luminaire Module, to Power Driver/Supply and Control Systems. A technological leader in electronic assembly, Alpha has assembled an eBook of LED technical papers that it will make available to those who visit the Alpha exhibit.

The LED Assembly, Reliability & Testing (A.R.T.) Symposium will provide attendees with information to bridge the gap between the semiconductor physics and the architectural design level issues in LED supply chain. The design, manufacturing, reliability assessment, testing and inspection of LEDs and LED lighting products are not at the same level of development and interest. The LED A.R.T. Symposium is the forum for the industry to explore the problems faced and offer solutions.
