Indium Features InFORMS Reinforced Solder Ribbon for Automated Assembly at NEPCON Japan 2018


Reading time ( words)

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

What Matters Most is Communication

12/04/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While there may be new techniques and strategies, technologies, equipment, tools, and materials to employ and utilize, there is always one thing that will ensure the manufacturing/ assembly success of your product: communication. Communication between the designer and the assembler will help improve the manufacturability and assembly of the final product—even before the board design gets fabricated.

DFx on High-Density Assemblies

12/01/2017 | Jonas Sjoberg, Chris Nash, David Sbiroli, and Wisdom Qu, Indium Corporation
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.

Creating the Perfect Solder Joint

11/03/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
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.
