Project description

The aim of the project is to increase the temperature resistance and reliability of the electrical and mechanical connections (interconnects) in the assemblies.

  • Improved SAC solders in terms of reliability and cost
  • New materials to increase the reliability of electrical and mechanical contacts of surface mount components for use at higher temperatures
  • Development and validation of finite element models for mechanical reliability (crack initiation and growth) for new materials
