Indium Features InFORMS Reinforced Solder Preforms at PCIM Europe 2017

Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature its reinforced solder alloy fabrications, InFORMS®, at PCIM Europe 2017, which will be held from May 16-18, 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany.

Indium is redefining solder with its InFORMS solder preforms. InFORMS are a composite preform consisting of solder and a reinforcing matrix that, together, increase lateral strength and bondline co-planarity while improving thermal cycling reliability.

When InFORMS were used to solder a DBC to the baseplate of an IGBT, one study showed:

  • 4x improved thermal cycling reliability compared to a solder preform-only approach
  • 2x improved thermal cycling reliability compared to a solder preform + Al wirebond stitch approach
  • Reduced voiding (<1%)
  • Lower cost of ownership – as a drop-in replacement for a standard preform or solder paste, InFORMS require no additional process steps or equipment
