Thermopads® Triple Wrap Series

The TVA W3 version of the Thermopad® offers metallization wraps around input, output, and ground terminals with small contact pads on the backside. The process permits inspectable solder fillets when flip chip mounting. Our application note describes the mounting techniques to optimize RF performance, heat sinking, and mechanical support terminals for use with alternative high frequency attachment methods and space applications. This product is available with various plating options including RoHS compliant lead free silver over nickel plating, 60/40 low temperature solder plating or 60/40 solder fused finish for easy reflow processing.
