"Au/Sn solderability problem"



2000

We manufacture W/Cu & Mo/Cu materials for the electronics packaging market. These materials are typically plated with Soft gold over nickel for solderability. One of our customers is attaching die to our substrate using a 0.001" thick 80/20 Au/Sn preform. The gold plating on our sub-mount is 100 micro-inches thick. The Au/Sn is leaving excessive voids after reflow. Any ideas of what may be causing the poor solderability? Is the gold plating too thick?

Is your customer using a plasma preclean process shortly before soldering? This could be important. Ask them to do a surface tension or wetting-angle test.
