We have developed low alpha particle solder used for bumping in Flip-Chip IC(BGA,etc). Their alpha particles are successfully reduced to 1/100-1/1000 of generic solder by utilizing our long experienced refining and atomic power technology.

Low Alpha-ray bumping solder
Mitsubishi Materials developed a low alpha-ray solder in which the counts of alpha-ray particles was successfully reduced to 1/100 _ 1/1000 compared to ordinary solders by utilizing our long experienced in refining and atomic power technology. These materials are used for bumping solder in flip-chip IC, e.g. CSP,BGA and so on.

Super Ultra low alpha solder (SULA grade)
Regarding Sn-base solder, as we know, alpha particles are generated from radio isotopes,
like Pb (lead) However it is easily misunderstand that Sn-base (Pb free)
solder does not show any alpha emission problem, since it does not include lead.
So we developed super ultra low alpha solder for customer needs whose alpha level is very low.
Time variation of alpha emission of SULA Sn-3.5%Ag solder paste after reflow
- Solder which correspond to alpha level < 0.002cph/cm2
- Solder which has no time variation of alpha emission. (Zero alpha emission solder)
- SULA Liquid (Sn-Ag)
- SULA Solder paste (Sn-Ag, Sn-Ag-Cu)
- SULA Solder ball (Sn-Ag , Sn-Ag-Cu)
