Dr. Mehran Maalekian, R&D Director for AIM Solder, will present at the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition, scheduled to take place February 26 – March 2, 2017 at the San Diego Convention Center and Marriot Marquis & Marina in San Diego, California.

Based on AIM's recent study, Dr. Maalekian's presentation titled "Effect of Ni on Mechanical Properties and Microstructure of Sn-0.7Cu and SAC307 Solder Alloys" evaluates the result of micro-alloying Ni in Sn99.3%/Cu0.7 and Sn96.3/Ag3/Cu0.7 alloys and the effect on intermetallic growth kinetics during aging.

Dr. Maalekian is experienced in materials engineering with a focus on physical metallurgy, soldering, modelling in materials engineering, metal forming and thermo-mechanical processes. Since the start of his career Dr. Maalekian has received numerous recognitions such as the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Award, the International Henry Granjon Prize (IIW), and IWS-Sossenheimer Award. Dr. He has published many scientific and technical papers and also serves as a reviewer of several scientific journals and is on the editorial board of "Science and Technology of Welding and Joining."

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
