A line of fast-setting, one-component conductive adhesives designed for connecting passive components and bare die on lead frames and PCB substrates has been introduced by the Contact Materials Division (CMD) of Heraeus. Intended uses for these materials include smart cards and flexible circuits found in camera phones and automotive or semiconductor applications.
The PC3200 series is a one-part system that requires no premixing. It does not have to be stored below 40°C nor shipped in dry ice, causing it to be considered as a hazardous material shipment. The adhesives can be shipped with standard ice packs and stored in a standard freezer. They are also solvent-free and are formulated for stencil print, screen printing, or dispensing applications. In addition to adhesion properties, the series provides high electrical and thermal conductivity. Heraeus Contact Materials Division West Conshohoken PA. www.4cmd.com
