Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation experts will share their industry knowledge and skill at SMTA International from October 14-18 in Rosemont, Illinois.

The following technical papers from Indium Corporation experts will be featured:

  • Robust SMT No-Clean Solder Paste for SiP and 01005 Assembly by Dr. Ning-Cheng Lee, Vice President of Technology
  • Low-Melting Point Materials Development: Novel High Reliability Low-Temperature Solder Alloys by Dr. Ning-Cheng Lee
  • Novel High-Reliability Low-Temperature Solder Alloys by Dr. Lee
  • Process and Materials Interaction Investigation: Test Methods for Electrochemical Consistency in PCB Assembly Processes – Revisited by Brook Sandy-Smith, Technical Support Engineer for PCB Assembly Materials
  • Solder Paste Rheology, Performance and Aging: How Worst-Case Shipping Scenarios Affect Solder-Paste Performance: Part 2 by Brook Sandy-Smith
  • Reflow Profiling for Next-Generation Pb-free Solder Alloys by Brook Sandy-Smith
  • Inspection Applications: Practical Implementation of Assembly Process for Low-Melting Point Solder Pastes by Brook Sandy-Smith
  • Solder Printing: Impact of Stencil Quality & Technology on Solder Paste Printing Performance by Jonas Sjoberg, Technical Manager
  • Reliability of Intermetallics in Various Interconnects: Copper-Tin Intermetallics: Their Importance, Growth Rate, and Nature by Dr. Ron Lasky, Senior Technologist

Indium Corporation experts will also serve as chairs for three technical sessions, including:

  • Solder Paste Development to Overcome Component Challenges: Adam Murling, Technical Support Engineer, Global Accounts
  • Low-Temperature Solder Paste and its Process Development – iNEMI Project: Anny Zhang, Regional Sales Manager, Northwestern USA, and Western Canada
  • Properties and Behavior of Solders Containing Bismuth: Brook Sandy-Smith

Additionally, Dr. Lee will lead a workshop on Achieving High-Reliability for Lead-Free Solder Joints – Materials Consideration, and Brook Sandy-Smith will host Rising Expectations for “High-Reliability”—a spotlight series panel discussion.

SMTAI is world-class electronics manufacturing conference and exhibition organized by the SMTA — the world's leading user group for surface mount and companion technologies. The conference provides high-quality technical information and networking opportunities.

The SMTA International conference—held September 22–29, 2019, at the Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois—honored industry members with awards for their contributions to the industry. I-Connect007 has compiled an unofficial list of award recipients. The official list from SMTA will be released shortly, and I-Connect007 will publish it as soon as it is available.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 2)

07/24/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
In the last three to five years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of low melting point alloys for SMT applications. Typically, the compositions are around the eutectic bismuth-tin alloy, perhaps with additions of other elements to increase the robustness of certain alloy properties. Now, there are several new products on the market and numerous ongoing reliability projects in industry consortia.
