Register Early for the iNEMI Low-Temperature Solder Workshop

Reading time ( words)

iNEMI will be at the upcoming NEPCON China 2019 event in Shanghai to discuss new developments and future plans for low-temperature solder materials and assembly techniques.

The iNEMI Low-Temperature Solder Workshop, to be held on Wednesday, April 24, from 9:45am to 4:45pm, will feature speakers from Intel, Dell, Flex, Huawei, Eunow, Tamura, Chongqing University, Shenmao Technology, and MacDermid Alpha, discussing a wide variety of topics including the innovations required to improve yield and quality of low-temperature solder assemblies; processability, reliability and failure mechanisms of low-temperature solder materials; and more.

The workshop will also identify collaborative project opportunities to accelerate low-temperature solder technology development and deployment in the industry.

The early bird registration for the workshop is until March 31.



Suggested Items

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.
