Indium Corporation will feature its metal thermal interface materials for burn-in, including Heat-Spring and HSMF-OS, at Burn-in & Test Strategies Workshop on March 4-7 in Mesa, Arizona.
Indium Corporation’s Heat-Spring is designed for use in the burn-in process. It is patterned to optimize contact with non-planar surfaces with a pressure range of only 35-100+ psi. Heat-Spring is available in InAg and InSn alloys and pure indium.
HSMF-OS has a multi-layer construction with a total thickness of 0.004” that is designed for multiple insertions. It has an aluminum layer that acts as an interface with the device under test, and has a tensile strength of approximately 90 MPa with a soft, compliant polymer backing, which provides a configuration with “designed-in” insertion survivability.

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.
