AIM Solder Technical Marketing Manager Timothy O’Neill will participate in the upcoming SMTA Ohio Valley Chapter Solder Roundtable Meeting taking place on February 1, 2018 at the Rhinegeist Brewery in Cincinnati, Ohio. O’Neill will be speaking about the evolution of lead-free solder alloys.

Solder alloy options are expanding rapidly as new application requirements are revealing the limitations of existing lead-free alloys. In this presentation, attendees will gain a better understanding of the evolution of lead-free solder alloys, the limitations of today’s common alloys and what the solder industry is offering as next generation materials.

With nearly 25 years of experience in electronics soldering, O'Neill has co-authored several papers on PCB assembly subjects. He is a Certified IPC Specialist, a technical writer and presenter for industry trade publications and events. His commitment and dedication to sharing innovative solutions to challenging problems in the electronics assembly market have earned him recognition from the SMTA as Speaker of Distinction.

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.
