Abstract: The control of the interfacial reaction rate is of great importance for liquid solder interconnects for high temperature electronic assemblies. Conventional electroless Ni-P barrier metallizations have been found to be inadequate for providing long term protection of the underlying metallization from the attack of molten solders. In this paper, binary Ni-P was modified with the co-deposition of a refractory alloying element, tungsten (W), from its soluble metal salt added to the plating bath. Critical parameters for the deposition of ternary Ni-W-P were identified. The long term reaction between Ni-W-P and molten Sn-Bi solder at 200 degC was studied. The results indicated that Ni-W-P barrier coatings with higher W contents have much longer service lifetime as a barrier than normal Ni-P coatings. A mechanism for the reaction between Ni-W-P and molten Sn-Bi solder, and a failure mechanism for the Ni-W-P layer, are also proposed
