Show Notes

According to the International Energy Agency, road transportation accounts for 16% of global emissions. Electric vehicles are the key technology to decarbonize this. The EIA estimates that EVs will account for 13% of new cars sold in 2022. Many countries are setting goals to eliminate combustion engine cars to reach Net Zero emissions by 2050. But there are a lot of challenges to iron out before EVs achieve critical mass. For example, one area of interest for this week’s podcast guests is the materials used to manufacture EV power modules. 

In this episode, Françoise von Trapp talks with Indium’s Pei Lim and Dean Payne about these challenges, particularly why pressure silver sintering is becoming a popular approach for die attach in power packaging applications. 

 You’ll learn how eMobility has impacted manufacturing power modules and the origin of silver sintering in these devices. You’ll learn about the materials currently used in sintering, and why silver is a better choice for electric vehicles. Lastly, you’ll learn about Indium’s pressure sinter offering and its benefits.
