Indium Experts to Present at IMAPS 2017


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation experts will share their knowledge and expertise at IMAPS 50th International Symposium on Microelectronics, October 10-12, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Vice President of Technology Dr. Ning-Cheng Lee will teach a professional development course, Choosing Solders for the New Era: Low-Cost High-Reliability Solder Alloys. This course explores the roles of solder composition in relation to cost and reliability, including materials properties, soldering performance, known failure modes, and the primary merit of discussed alloys.

Andy C. Mackie, PhD, MSc, Senior Product Manager for Semiconductor and Advanced Assembly Materials, will co-chair a session on polymers in microelectronics (WA5). This session focuses on the development of polymers for use as encapsulates, dielectrics, conductors, and resistors for use in microelectronic devices.

Tim Jensen, Product Manager for Engineered Solders Materials, will present Reinforced Solder Technology for Increased Reliability. The presentation details the outcomes of a study that showed how, through an optimized design, a reinforced solder preform can produce a solder joint with high-reliability and low-voiding.

Jensen will also co-chair a session on reliability (THA5). This session focuses on several facets of electronics reliability that are impacted as devices generate more power from smaller form factors in broader ranges of applications.

PCB Pad Repair Techniques

01/08/2018 | Bob Wettermann, BEST Inc.
There are a variety of reasons behind pads getting "lifted" completely or partially from the laminate of a PCB. Per the just revised IPC-A-610 Revision G, a defect for all three classes occurs when the land is lifted up one or more pad thicknesses. Lifted pads can occur when a device has been improperly removed or there is a manufacturing defect in the board construction. In any case, as with any repair, the ultimate decision on the ability to repair the pad lies with the customer.

01/02/2018 | I-Connect007
Another year is over in the SMT industry. 2017 saw a myriad of hot topics, including Industry 4.0, the millennials’ entry into the manufacturing space, and alternative solder materials, to name a few. Without further ado, here are the Top 10 columns from SMT007 over the past year.

The Effect of Area Shape and Area Ratio on Solder Paste Printing Performance

12/28/2017 | Stefan Härter, et al.
The ongoing miniaturization trend in the SMT production induces new challenges and highly integrated systems. In passive components, the miniaturization leads to the introduction of the EIA size 01005 or smaller. Despite numerous publications in this field already addressing the printing of such devices, a defined wholly optimized process remains unsolved and inspires further novel research ideas on this topic.
