Indium Corporation will feature its reinforced solder alloy fabrications, InFORMS, at NEPCON Japan 2018, January 17-19, in Tokyo, Japan.
Indium Corporation is redefining solder with its patent-pending InFORMS solder ribbon for automated assembly. InFORMS solder ribbon is a composite fabrication consisting of solder and a reinforcing matrix that:
- Increases lateral strength
- Maintains bondline co-planarity
- Improves thermal cycling reliability
