Electric Vehicle Research at Advanced Materials Osaka July 2019
Here we give the abstracts relevant to electric vehicles from BIT Advanced Materials Conference Osaka Japan July 2019. The organisers failed to provide slides but we have photographs of some of these if you are interested. The selected abstracts are divided into energy storage, wide bandgap semiconductors, energy harvesting and other.
Technology evolution for the die and substrate attach paste
This is part III of our series on metal sintering in power electronics (PE). In the last two parts, we considered (1) the key trends shaping the power electronic technology, and (2) the key existing and emerging approach seeking to replace Al wire bonding to boost thermal reliability in PE packages. In this article, we examine how and why metal sintering is emerging as an alternative to, or as the next generation of, die attach technology, seeking to replace solder in demanding applications.
