Indium Corporation to Present at NEPCON Vietnam 2016

Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation experts will share their knowledge and expertise at NEPCON Vietnam, which is scheduled to be held from October 6–8, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Jonas Sjoberg, Technical Manager, will present "DfX for High-Density Assemblies," which covers the basic principles and understanding of manufacturability (DfM) and reliability (DfR). 

Participants will learn the importance of understanding process and design and how they impact manufacturing yields, reliability, and total cost. Lessons will include real-world case studies, with fundamental consideration and mechanisms of challenges well illustrated.

James Duong, Area Technical Manager, Vietnam, will discuss how to "Avoid the Void." Voiding reduces the electrical conductivity and physical strength of the solder joint and interferes with the component’s thermal management capabilities. Indium Corporation researched this defect extensively and, as a result, created Indium 10.1 and Indium 8.9HF solder pastes to minimize voiding and increase product reliability.

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: How Engineers Can Use SPI Tools for Verification
