AIM to Highlight REL61 at SMTA Intermountain (Boise) Expo & Tech Forum


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder is pleased to announce their participation at the SMTA Intermountain (Boise) Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place March 29th, 2017 at Boise State University in Boise, Idaho. AIM will highlight their revolutionary REL61 lead-free solder alloy, along with their full line of solder assembly materials. 

REL61 addresses the most challenging issues with today’s common lead-free alloys, specifically voiding, cost, durability and tin whiskers.  Combined with AIM M8 Solder Paste, REL61 has reduced voiding on BTC packages by over 45%, increasing both thermal performance and solder joint integrity. REL61 offers a low cost alternative to SAC alloys, with reliability and performance characteristics superior to SAC305 and other low/no-silver solder alloys. Extensive testing indicates that REL61 can reduce tin whisker formation as well as outperform SAC alloys in thermal shock, vibration and drop shock resistance.  

AIM will highlight its full line of advanced solder materials, including its solder paste, liquid flux and solder alloys, including its newly developed REL22 solder alloy for extremely harsh environments. To discover all of AIM’s products and services, visit the company at the SMTA Intermountain (Boise) Expo & Tech Forum for more information.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
