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.

Optimizing Solder Paste Volume for Low-Temperature Reflow of BGA Packages

07/22/2019 | Keith Sweatman, Nihon Superior Co. Ltd
In this article, Keith Sweatman explains how the volume of low-melting-point alloy paste—which delivers the optimum proportion of retained ball alloy for a particular reflow temperature—can be determined by reference to the phase diagrams of the ball and paste alloys.

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.
