Indium Features Gold Alloy Solder Preforms at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Expo


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature its precision gold alloy solder preforms at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Expo, which will be held from April 9-13 in Anaheim, California.

Depending on the alloy, gold-based solders have a melting point ranging from 280°C to 1064°C, making it compatible with subsequent reflow processes. In addition, gold-based solders are resistant to corrosion, provide superior thermal fatigue resistance, and exhibit excellent joint strength.

Indium's AuSn preforms have the highest tensile strength of any solder, ensuring high-reliability for joining and sealing. AuSn preforms are designed for high-reliability applications, such as aerospace, defense, and medical.

Semiconductor-grade preforms are designed to meet the challenges faced as RF and power semiconductor devices continue to get smaller, with power density increasing both as a consequence of the shrink and as a result of increased power ratings.

About Indium Corporation

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
