Loctite Ablestik ATB 125GR is a high-reliability ncDAF suitable for wirebond laminate and lead frame packages, compatible with small- to medium-sized die, and formulated to provide excellent workability and processability. As 3D packaging miniaturization accelerates across the microelectronics market, smaller, thinner, high-density package structures are the norm. For these reasons, many packaging specialists opt for die attach film materials instead of pastes to enable more challenging dimensions. Compared to pastes, die attach films offer controlled thickness and flow, no resin bleed, consistent fillet formation and bond line stability before and after cure. Loctite Ablestik ATB 125GR provides these proven advantages in addition to high-reliability, Automotive Grade 0 performance for both laminate and lead frame designs, making it a good candidate for demanding applications across consumer, automotive and industrial. "Developing a material that is ubiquitous across varied types of metal lead frames and laminate substrates, with optimized bonding and curing performance for die sizes ranging from 0.5 mm x 0.5 mm to 3.0 mm x 3.0 mm is challenging," said Henkel's Ramachandran Trichur, Global Market Segment Head for Semiconductor Packaging Materials. "Loctite Ablestik ATB 125GR has bridged this gap, allowing supply chain simplification, while also delivering exceptional reliability with its ability to pass a demanding 1,000 cycles of thermal testing (-60°C to 150°C)." Among the unique attributes of Loctite Ablestik ATB 125GR are its low modulus and low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) properties at room temperature, with a high modulus at wire bonding temperature to ensure high-reliability performance. The material has demonstrated strong adhesion on Ag, Cu and PPF metal lead frames and laminate substrates, has low ionics to facilitate Cu wire bonding, and provides excellent processability and workability for all processing steps (lamination, dicing and die pick-up) on dies ranging in size from 0.5 mm x 0.5 mm to 3.0 mm x 3.0 mm. As Trichur noted in summary, "Loctite Ablestik ATB 125GR marks a significant advancement for ncDAF materials, allowing package integrators to source a single material that can meet the requirements of many challenging semiconductor applications within varied end devices." Loctite Ablestik ATB 125GR is currently available in a 25 µm thickness, with custom thicknesses available on request. For more information, visit www.henkel-adhesives.com/electronics.

Meeting of Global Alliance of Leaders in Paris
NUR-SULTAN, Kazakhstan, Dec. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 29, 2022, meeting of Global Alliance of Leaders for Nuclear Security and Nuclear-Weapon-Free World (GAL), which unites political leaders, diplomats, experts, Nobel peace prize laureates, heads of international NGOs from 45 countries, was held at Dialogue of Continents forum in Paris. Meeting of Global Alliance of Leaders in Paris The participants discussed challenges over the war in Ukraine during session "How to avoid nuclear war?". In her speech, Angela Kane, former UN Deputy Secretary-General, stressed that nuclear escalation became possible scenario in current geopolitical crisis. "There are currently two risks. First is destruction of Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant resulting in a nuclear catastrophe. Second scenario is possibility of using nuclear weapons. This conflict upended all progress that remained for past 60 years in arms control field," - stressed the expert. In turn, Urban Rusnak, former Secretary-General of Energy Charter, Ambassador, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Slovak Republic, noted that in light of recent international events, steps taken by Kazakhstan on voluntary denuclearization are of particular value. "Situation in Ukraine, which, like Kazakhstan, had nuclear potential and went through denuclearization, is of particular concern. Until recently, it was difficult to imagine that nuclear infrastructure facilities could become targets for attacks," - stressed the speaker. Ariel Cohen, Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council, Director of Energy and Security Program (ITIC), focused audience's attention on consequences of incidents involving nuclear reactors in a warzone. "If Zaporizhzhia nuclear reactor security is compromised, that will raise catastrophic consequences not just for Ukraine, but for nuclear security in general. International mechanism to ensure security of nuclear power reactors is broken," - summed up the expert. Summing up the session, Kairat Abuseitov, a well-known Kazakhstani diplomat, from Nursultan Nazarbayev Foundation, noted that Kazakhstan has a unique example of voluntary denuclearization. "The country possessed world's fourth largest nuclear arsenal (in 1991). Kazakshtan had the right to be nuclear-weapon-state. But chose a different path," - concluded the speaker. In conclusion, participants agreed that lack of political will to resolve issues of nuclear non-proliferation is fraught with further escalation, and importance of dialogue platforms which could restore lost mutual trust between nuclear states is important as never before. GAL meeting was held during an official visit of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev to France. Kazakhstan, which produces 42% of world's uranium, actively develop cooperation with France and EU in the field of peaceful atom and nuclear nonproliferation.

"Recover the lost 30 years in 5 years: Since the collapse of Japan's bubble economy, the country entered a long period of economic stagnation. Burdened with many issues such as declining birthrates, an aging society and a decreasing workforce, Japan has been called 'a developed country with issues.' There are many reasons behind the economic stagnation, and one of them is the sluggish implementation of digital transformation (DX); in other words, the digitalization of society and organizations. "As Modis, we were already providing services to support the DX of companies, but with this new start as AKKODiS Consulting, we aim to reach even greater heights. By being reborn as a consulting firm that supports the DX and business transformation of companies through comprehensive end-to-end consulting services, from upstream consulting to operation and maintenance in the field, we aim to become a business partner that supports corporate innovation. "With AKKODiS Consulting supporting the productivity of Japanese companies with the power of technology, I believe Japan can be reborn as 'a developed country that resolves issues.' We will push forward with the conviction that Japan will once again lead the world, and if we can make this happen, I believe the country will be able to recover the lost 30 years in 5 years."
