A silver precursor (silver 2-ethylhexanoate) and silver nanoparticles were synthesized and used to prepare a low sintering temperature nano-silver paste (PM03). We optimized the amount of silver 2-ethylhexanoate added and the sintering temperature to obtain the best performance of the nano-silver paste. The relationship between the microstructures and properties of the paste was studied. The addition of silver 2-ethylhexanoate resulted in less porosity, leading to lower resistivity and higher shear strength. Thermal compression of the paste PM03 at 250◦ C with 10 MPa pressure for 30 min was found to be the proper condition for copper-to-copper bonding. The resistivity was (3.50 ± 0.02) × 10−7 Ω·m, and the shear strength was 57.48 MPa.
