AIM to Participate at SMTA Wisconsin Expo & Tech Forum


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder is pleased to announce that it will highlight its revolutionary REL61 lead-free solder alloy, along with its full line of solder assembly materials, at the SMTA Wisconsin Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place on May 2, 2017 at the Milwaukee Airport Crowne Plaza in Milwaukee. Additionally, AIM Technical Marketing Manager Timothy O’Neill will present at the technical forum.

O’Neill will present the white paper “Conformal Coating over No Clean Flux,” which addresses the complex subject of the application of conformal coating over no clean flux residue. For this study, AIM worked with OEM electronics and conformal coating manufacturers to determine the applicable test methods and the compatibility of various types of coatings and flux types. The results demonstrate possible combinations meeting the mission profile of the assembly with consideration for the assemblers’ capabilities and cost objectives.

AIM will also highlight its innovative high-reliability, lead-free solder alloys. REL61 addresses the most challenging issues with today’s common lead-free alloys, specifically BTC voiding, cost, durability and tin whiskers. It offers a low cost alternative to SAC alloys, with reliability and performance characteristics superior to SAC305 and other low/no-silver solder alloys.  REL22™ is a high-reliability, high-strength lead-free solder alloy for extreme service environments, with reliability equal to Sn/Ag/Bi/Sb/Ni/Cu and a wider process window. To discover all of AIM’s products and services, visit the company at the SMTA Wisconsin Expo & Tech Forum for more information.

Every year, we like to take a look back at the most popular SMT news and articles. These are the top 10 most-read SMT articles from the past year.

Evaluation of Stencil Technology for Miniaturization

12/22/2017 | Neeta Agarwal, et al.*
SMT stencil printing technology continually evolves to keep pace with device miniaturization technologies. Printed circuit board assemblers have numerous new technology options to choose from, and need to determine the most effective ones to produce the highest quality and most reliable solder interconnections.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.
