BiAgX high-melt lead-free (Pb-free) solder paste is a drop-in replacement for standard high Pb-containing solder pastes. Is for small, low-voltage QFN packages used in portable electronics (smartphone/tablet), automotive electronics, and industrial applications. Is said to perform in at temperatures in excess of 150°C. Reportedly requires minimal process adjustments from standard high Pb-containing solder paste-based processes. Has passed MSL1 and thermal cycle testing at several power semiconductor customers. Is said to reflow, solder, wet and solidify like other solder pastes. Comes in dispense and printing forms. Fluxes are cleanable with standard cleaning chemistries and processes.
