Indium to Showcase Technical Content at PCIM Europe E-Mobility Area and Forum


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will showcase material from its vast library of technical content during the E-mobility Forum at PCIM Europe 2019 from May 7-9 in Nuremberg, Germany.

Trade visitors will be able to visit the E-mobility Area to examine specialized booths focused on electromobility, including new developments and challenges in power electronics due to the evolving electric automotive industry. Additionally, Indium Corporation will deliver a presentation at the E-mobility Forum on May 9.

Seth Homer, product manager, engineered solders, will present "The Impact of Solder Alloy Integrity in Power Electronics," which discusses the role of solder alloys on power electronics designs amid challenges for improved reliability and performance. Some of the criteria to be discussed include alloy homogeneity, purity, and the impact of dimensional tolerances.

Homer has more than 20 years of industry experience in both manufacturing operations and marketing roles. He is responsible for many of the company’s engineered solder products, especially as it relates to the power electronics industries. He travels to customer sites globally to gain industry insight and works closely with Indium Corporation’s manufacturing teams to help support current production demand and future product development.

Indium Corporation will also feature high-reliability materials for automotive power solutions on the forum’s poster wall. Specially formulated to address a variety of issues in the automotive industry, these products include the following:

  • Indium8.9HF Solder Paste offers enhanced electrical reliability and no dendritic growth.
  • InFORMS optimizes solder volume with high-reliability solder preforms and ribbon.
  • Heat-Spring and HSMF thermal interface materials (TIMs) provide superior thermal management in power modules.

Indium Corporation is also exhibiting at the show and will feature the high-reliability products reviewed in their experts’ presentations, as well as other high-performance thermal interface materials designed to improve first yields.

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.
