Abstract : An alloy for brazing a silicon die to a gold-plate kovar header consists essentially of 19 to 21 weight percent tin and 0.6 to 0.8 weight percent silicon with the balance being gold. The alloy melts at a temperature below 200 C. which is substantially lower than that of the conventional gold-silicon eutectic alloy. (Author)
