Performance and Reliability of Bonded Interfaces for High-Temperature Packaging

Research output: NRELPresentation


The presentation focuses on mechanical characterization, reliability evaluation and thermomechanical modeling of sintered silver bonded interface material. Two types of sintered silver material are being investigated in this study - first one based on nanosilver particles and the other one comprising of a mixture of nanosilver particles and micron-sized silver flakes. Shear stress results obtained as a function of displacement rates and ambient temperature are reported. Also, scanning acoustic microscopy images of samples for accelerated testing and thermomechanical modeling results are presented.
