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.

Practical Implementation of Assembly Processes for Low Melting Point Solder Pastes (Part 1)

07/16/2019 | Adam Murling, Miloš Lazić, and Don Wood, Indium Corporation; and Martin Anselm, Rochester Institute of Technology
Since 2006 and the implementation of the RoHS directive, the interest in bismuth-tin solder alloys—whose melting point around 140°C is very desirable because it allows for the use of lower temperature laminate materials and reduces thermal stress on sensitive components—has only increased as the industry has searched for Pb-free alternatives to the chosen standard, SAC305, which melts at considerably higher temperatures than the incumbent tin-lead alloys.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
