Indium Corporation will feature its Indium3.2HF Solder Paste at the 14th International Wafer-Level Packaging Conference (IWLPC 2017—Silicon to Systems), October 24–26, in San Jose, California.
Indium3.2HF is an air or nitrogen reflow, water-soluble solder paste specifically formulated for fine feature printing applications (Type 6SG).
Indium3.2HF is formulated to offer consistent, repeatable printing performance combined with a long stencil life. In addition, Indium3.2HF delivers:
- Good response-to-pause
- A wide reflow profile window
- Outstanding slump resistance
- Excellent wetting capability
- Superior fine-pitch soldering ability
From water-soluble solder pastes to ultra-low residue, no-clean fluxes, Indium Corporation has an industry-proven portfolio of products that meet the current and evolving challenges encountered in fine-pitch SiP applications.

Use of new technologies poses a number of challenges for solder paste selection, PCB design, assembly process, and reliability. The type of end product will have different challenges, concerns, and requirements in all aspects. The assembly line for many of these end products will look very similar, but specification limits would be different.

From a visual standpoint, a good solder joint should be smooth, bright, shiny, clean, and have a nice concave solder fillet. But how do you ensure that inside those joints, good intermetallic bonds are formed? Solder joints play several different roles, and they represent several different opportunities to be a problem, a partial improvement, or a complete improvement. Since all solder joints aren’t created equal, the first step is to understand what is expected or required of that joint.
