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.

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.
