Abstract：Effect of nano-Al particle on interface reaction between SnAgCu and Cu substrate was investigated, and interfacial layer growth of the two solders and mechanical properties of solder joints during -55-125℃ thermal cycles were systematically analyzed. The results indicate that the intermetallic compounds grow obviously with the development of thermal cycles, Cu6Sn5 IMCs are found at the as-soldered interface, and Cu3Sn IMCs appears between Cu6Sn5 and Cu substrate during thermal cycles. Moreover, it is found that the addition of nano-Al particles can reduce the thickness of intermetallic compounds layer, and nano-Al particles can retard the IMCs growth during thermal cycles. Finally, the reliability of solder joints during thermal cycles was studied, the tensile force decreases with the development of thermal cycles, and the SnAgCu solder joints bearing nano-particles exhibits improvements compared to SnAgCu. In service, the failure path of solder joints is observed between Cu6Sn5 and Cu3Sn phases.
