AIM to Participate in SMTA New England on November 3rd, 2016


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder will highlight their innovative M8 no-clean solder paste along with their full line of solder assembly materials at the SMTA New England Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place November 3, 2016 at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts.   

M8 no-clean solder paste has been formulated to improve production yields and product quality, whether printing 0.50 area ratios or eliminating voiding on QFN and LED packages.  M8's post-reflow residue passes all IPC, BONO and tough changing environment test specifications, making it the ideal choice for automotive and high performance/high reliability applications.  

Additionally, AIM’s R&D Manager, Dr. Mehran Maalekian, will be presenting at the SMTA New England Expo & Tech Forum on November 3, 2016. Dr. Maalekian’s presentation, “New Pb-free Alloys for Improved Reliability – Latest Results,” explores the use of a novel high reliability lead-free solder alloy, that contrary to the commonly used SAC305, can perform in harsh service conditions and provides superior creep resistance and mechanical properties for high reliability applications. 

Dr. Mehran Maalekian received his PhD with distinction from Graz University of Technology, Austria in 2007. Through his long research career he has published and presented numerous scientific and technical papers on physical metallurgy, materials modeling, welding and soldering, including a chapter of the ASM Int. Handbook.  Dr. Maalekian has won a number of national and international awards, such as from the International Institute of Welding.  He serves as a reviewer of several scientific journals and is on the editorial board of “Science and Technology of Welding and Joining.”

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.

IPC APEX EXPO 2020 Attendees Speak: Dr. Martin Anselm

"The biggest challenge I’ve encountered a number of different times is the migration to much larger packaging," said Dr. Martin Anselm, director of CEMA Lab. "Devices are getting much larger, and with the thousands of I/O of solder joints, and they are not just single-die, multi-chip modules in different forms or 2.5D technologies.
