Indium to Feature Indium8.9HF Solder Paste at IPC APEX EXPO 2019


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature its ultra-reliable Indium8.9HF Solder Paste series at IPC APEX EXPO 2019, January 29-31, in San Diego, California, USA.

Electrical reliability is a must-have for electronic components and products to work properly, especially when issues like ionic contamination under low stand-off components can cause dendritic growth which can lead to intermittent operation or short-circuiting and ultimately field failures.

Indium8.9HF is an air reflow, no-clean solder paste specially formulated to enhance electrical reliability and eliminate dendritic growth in high power products, such as automotive electronics manufacturing. 

Indium8.9HF delivers peace-of-mind, knowing that assemblies will maintain integrity with:

  • Increased electrical reliability via enhanced surface insulation resistance (SIR) that inhibits current leakage and dendritic growth
  • Improved thermal reliability due to its low-voiding performance on bottom terminating components (BTCs), reducing the risk of application or product failure

Indium8.9HF can accommodate the higher processing temperatures required by the SnAgCu, SnAg, and other alloy systems favored by the electronics industry to replace conventional Pb-bearing solders.

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.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
