Indium Features InFORMS Reinforced Solder Preforms at APEC 2017


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature its reinforced solder alloy fabrications, InFORMS, at APEC 2017, March 26-30, in Tampa, Florida.

InFORMS are reinforced solder preforms that increase lateral strength and stability. As a result, improved thermal cycling reliability can be achieved.

In one study where InFORMS were used to solder a DBC to the baseplate of an IGBT, the following were achieved:

  • 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
  • Low-voiding of
  • Lower cost of ownership – an InFORM is a drop-in replacement for a standard preform or solder paste, requiring no additional process steps or equipment

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 2)

07/24/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
In the last three to five years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of low melting point alloys for SMT applications. Typically, the compositions are around the eutectic bismuth-tin alloy, perhaps with additions of other elements to increase the robustness of certain alloy properties. Now, there are several new products on the market and numerous ongoing reliability projects in industry consortia.
