Which Off-Eutectic AuSn Alloy Do I Use?
Plating dies and/or substrates with pure gold works well to prevent the components from oxidizing, but can lead to undesirable gold-rich solder joints. Using an off-eutectic AuSn alloy as the solder material accommodates for these thick gold metallizations, allowing for the exact adjustment of the final solder joint composition to guarantee strong solder joints in die-attach applications.Read More

Indium Corporation is a leading gold and silver alloy bonding and brazing materials innovator for high-temperature and high-reliability applications, such as die-attach and hermetic sealing, in various industries including automotive, RF infrastructure, military, laser, and aerospace.
With over 200 alloys available, we have alloy solutions for temperatures up to 1,100°C. Providing an alternative to traditional high-lead options, Indium Corporation currently offers and is continuously developing novel lead-free solutions such as gold solders, sintering, preforms, and alloy technology with new flux systems
High Temperature Products
Lead-free options from Indium Corporation
Gold based alloys offer strong bond strength, excellent corrosion and oxidation resistance, and good thermal and electrical transfer at the braze joint.
Indium Corporation’s QuickSinter® silver sintering pastes are high metal-loading materials designed to fit easily into a dispense process with no change of deposition equipment. The pastes can also use fast “reflow-like” (RFL) sintering processes to form strong joints on many standard leadframe, DBC, and IPM pad finishes, and will bond strongly to die with Ag, Au, or Cu surfaces.
Silver-Based High Temp Alloys
High thermal and electrical conductivity, capillaries very well into joints, and holds up well in applications with lots of stress and with CTE mismatches.
