Reading time ( words)

STI Electronics, Inc. is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2017 Jim D. Raby Scholarship. This year’s recipient was Broxton Sanderson, a student at the local Calhoun Community College with locations in Decatur and Huntsville, Alabama.

The annual scholarship is awarded to a student enrolled in a technical program at Calhoun Community College and is based on multiple economic factors. STI helped to set the criteria but is not involved in the selection process.

The Jim D. Raby scholarship program was established in 2004. The Raby family wanted to provide a scholarship to a student that exemplified determination and a strong work ethic while being enrolled in an advanced manufacturing program.

“This is the perfect legacy for my father,” said David Raby, President/CEO. “It encourages and reflects the beliefs and values that he demonstrated throughout his life.”

STI believes in education and is proud to support students at its local college. If you would like to join STI in supporting the Jim D. Raby/STI Scholarship Fund, checks should be made payable to Calhoun Foundation and mailed to: Calhoun Foundation, Calhoun Community College; P. O. Box 2216, Decatur, AL 35609-2216. Please include a cover letter with the check or donation stating the check is for the Jim D. Raby/STI Scholarship Fund.

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.
