AIM Solder has announced that Dr. Sirine Bayram, Research and Development Chemist, will present at the International Conference for Electronics Enabling Technologies, taking place June 4-6, 2019 at ventureLAB in Markham, Ontario, Canada. Sirine’s presentation, “Flux Medium and Voiding: An Empirical Study,” is scheduled for 11:30-12:00 on Wednesday, June 5, 2019.
As excess void formation can reduce the service life and performance of components, the SMT assembly industry continually seeks to reduce the presence of voids in solder joints. It is generally accepted that solder paste flux formulation strongly influences void formation. Sirine’s study will examine the influence of several attributes of flux performance on BTC void formation with an emphasis on examining the influence flux chemistry.
