AIM’s Dr. Sirine Bayram to Present at ICEET

Reading time ( words)

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.

About the Presenter

Sirine is a Research Chemist at AIM Solder, Montreal. She completed her Ph.D. in Chemistry from McGill University. Before joining AIM, she was an FRQ-NT postdoctoral fellow at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. She has published peer-reviewed journal articles and received several graduate excellence awards. Sirine holds experience in the fabrication and characterization of metallic and semiconductor nanomaterials, as well as designing hybrid materials for targeted applications.  Throughout her research years, she applied bottom-up self-assembly strategies, bioscaffolding, and photonic crystals templates for nano-patterning.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
