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.

Graphene: Market update and future prospects by IDTechEx (II)
I have just recently returned from the Graphene 2017 conference in Barcelona where I gave an invited talk. There is tremendous scientific progress, both on CVD and platelet type graphene, and across many graphene applications. Interestingly, the participants however repeatedly suggested that the industry has now passed the peak of hype and is well into the disillusionment period.
