Abstract: In this paper, we present details of a very systematic study undertaken for the development of lead-free and RoHS compliant alloy for high operating temperature applications. Currently, Innolot is one of the most suitable alloy for such ultra-high reliability requirements, such as, Automotive and high CTE mis-match applications. The aim of this study was to develop a new lead-free alloy with improved thermal and electrical properties when compared to standard Innolot. This paper summarizes basic alloy properties, including mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of a set of these new lead-free alloys. Overall, the new alloys present significant enhancements in metallurgical properties and soldering properties for SMT assembly.

Key Words:
