Indium Launches New Low-Temperature Solder Paste


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation has released a new low-temperature solder paste specifically developed to minimize solder beading and solder balling. Indium5.7LT-1 is an air reflow, halogen-free, no-clean solder paste designed for low-temperature assembly processes using indium and bismuth alloys.

Indium 5.7LT-1 is engineered with a balanced set of properties for outstanding printing and soldering, including:

  • Low-temperature reflow
  • Clear post-reflow flux residue
  • High transfer efficiency and low variation
  • Excellent response-to-pause
  • Low-voiding in bottom termination components (QFNs), BGAs, LGAs
  • Excellent wetting

Indium5.7LT-1 is halogen-free per EN14582 test method. It joins Indium Corporation’s versatile high-performance, low-voiding solder pastes designed to accommodate a variety of industry requirements with lead-free, halogen-free, and no-clean options.

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.
