Indium's Minter to Present at TMS 2018 Annual Meeting & Exhibition


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Jonathan Minter, Research and Development Metallurgy Technician, will present at the TMS 2018 Annual Meeting & Exhibition on March 11-15 in Phoenix, Arizona.

High-Pb solders have been used as die-attach materials for decades in discrete power packages. Due to the known harmful effects of Pb to human health and the environment, and the demand of SiC power device serving under higher junction temperature, alternative Pb-free materials have been studied intensively. However, Pb-free alternatives for die-attach applications are still in the infant age, and no well-recognized drop-in solution is available yet.

Minter’s presentation, "High Temperature Lead-free Die Attach Materials," will review the potential materials/technologies for high-temperature Pb-free die-attach, including solders, sintering materials, and solid-liquid interdiffusion materials/technology.

Minter joined Indium Corporation in 2015 and is responsible for supporting the development and testing of high-temperature Pb-free solder paste alloys. He earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and a master’s degree in chemistry (adolescence education) from SUNY Cortland.

Under the Hood: Solder Joint Reliability

05/21/2018 | Burton Carpenter, NXP Semiconductors Inc.
It has been long established that packages using NSMD BGA pads were more resilient than ones with SMD pads to fatigue-induced solder joint cracks. However, NSMD pads in previous investigations on 292MAPBGA and 416PBGA packages failed sooner in AATS testing due to an alternate failure mode: substrate Cu trace cracks. This article looks into the effects of substrate material and package pad design on solder joint reliability of 0.8 mm pitch BGA.
