IMAPS 2018 Advanced Packaging for Compound Semiconductor Applications Conference 2018

IMAPs-UK’s Advanced Packaging for Compound Semiconductor Applications Conference 2018

Accelonix Ltd was proud to participate in this year’s Advanced Packaging for Compound Semiconductor Applications conference, which took place on 8th February 2018, in Birmingham. This one-day event focused on advanced packaging solutions specifically addressing the challenges associated with compound semiconductor packaging applications.

The workshop included an array of electronics packaging experts and practitioners to present a comprehensive review of advanced packaging technologies applied in power electronics, photonics, RF/Microwave and sensing, where compound semiconductors are already making a big impact.

Darren Harvey, Sales and Applications Engineer for Microelectronics at Accelonix, delivered a presentation entitled “Addressing Compound Semiconductor Packaging Challenges”, covering three key technologies: Die attach sintering for high-power devices, which included the handling of fragile compound semiconductors; Vacuum potting for high power applications; and Vacuum soldering for high power, high reliability applications.

Reflecting on the event, Darren commented: “It is always a privilege to represent Accelonix at IMAPS. As a company, we are fortunate to have access to a broad array of leading edge technologies across our portfolio of equipment manufactures. This conference provided a great opportunity to highlight and share technology developments with colleagues in our industry. Many electronic components must fulfil strict reliability and functional durability requirements, we need advanced packaging techniques to deliver functionality, versatility and suitability to keep up with the latest trends”.
