Indium’s Seth Homer to Present at IMS 2019


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation expert Seth Homer, product manager, engineered solders, will present at International Microwave Symposium from June 2-7, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Homer will present "Materials and Techniques for Void Reduction Under Bottom Termination Components." The paper discusses how voiding is challenging demands for increased reliability and performance, especially as the industry moves toward new 5G platforms. As a solution to excessive voiding between the thermal pad on the QFN and PWB pad, he examines how Indium Corporation’s flux-coated solder preforms have been used to significantly reduce voiding while providing extra benefits to enhance final product reliability.

Homer has worked with Indium Corporation for more than 25 years, serving in both manufacturing operations and marketing roles. He is responsible for many of the products within the engineered solders product offering especially as it relates to the IGBT and 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.

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.
