iNEMI Next-Generation Solder Materials Workshop at IPC APEX EXPO 2019


Reading time ( words)

New and emerging product markets are driving further miniaturization of components, making smaller and thinner packages and boards the norm. These applications also present unique use and environmental conditions. As a result, the electronics manufacturing industry faces additional assembly yield and product reliability challenges. So how can we successfully mitigate these challenges? Modify existing materials and processes? Develop new technologies?

iNEMI will be holding a free workshop that will focus on the future of solder materials and how these materials must advance to meet the needs of new products and processes. Scheduled on January 31, 2019, at the Buzz Session BZ6 of the IPC APEX EXPO 2019, the workshop will be interactive, with speakers, panel sessions and working groups focused on user needs and materials development. The keynote will be delivered by Intel, while speakers and panelists will be from Senju, Alpha Assembly, Henkel, Indium, HP, Dell, Raytheon and John Deere.

The workshop aims to discuss new and future plans of solder materials development in the electronics industry; increase understanding of the processing and reliability challenges encountered when adopting new solder materials; and identify collaborative project opportunities to advance technology development and deployment of next-generation solders.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: How Engineers Can Use SPI Tools for Verification

05/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Koh Young’s Ray Welch and Brent Fischthal detail how engineers can work with SPI tools to verify how small they can go in component size with their solder paste application, and how the company’s SPI equipment is helping not only to verify but also to help drive the development collaboration between solder paste and stencil printer manufacturers, and inspection tools and software.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Indium Metal Forecast—Supply Chain Strong, Demand Continues to Grow

05/05/2020 | Donna Vareha-Walsh, Indium
Indium is a critical metal for the indium-tin oxide (ITO) market and other coating applications. Donna Vareha Walsh—director of sales and global supply chain and trade compliance at Indium Corporation—describes the plentiful global supply of indium and its recycling loop, examines indium’s history of price volatility and the market reactions from the recent Fanya Metal Exchange auction, and provides an overview of indium supply and demand drivers, as well as the impact of recycling efforts.
