Reading time ( words)

During productronica 2019, the I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with some of the industry's top executives, managers, and engineers.

In this video interview, part of the productronica coverage, the I-Connect007 team speaks with Product Manager Chris Nash and Senior Product Manager Andy Mackie, both with Indium Corporation.

Editor Nolan Johnson sits down with Nash and Mackie to discuss Indium’s focus on creating innovative products for the 5G, automotive, semiconductor, and high-reliability segments.

Indium_Andy_Mackie-200.jpgMackie offers a preview of Indium’s plans for 2020 and beyond, including lead-free drop-in sintering materials that can be dispensed and printed more quickly than ever before. As Mackie says, “Material science changes the world.”

The productronica event is one of the world’s leading trade fairs for electronics development and production. The productronica trade fair is held on alternating years, at the Messe München in Munich, Germany. The next productronica will be held November 16-19, 2021.

Joe Fjelstad Breaks Down His Occam Process

03/04/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Joe Fjelstad recently met with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team to discuss the potential benefits of his Occam process for solderless assembly. This technique allows assembly of the PCB without the risks associated with traditional surface-mount processes, such as solder joint failure. Has the time come for the industry to embrace Occam?

Stencils: Not As Simple As They Seem

Stephanie Hardin of Integrated Ideas and Technologies Inc. discusses her role in the supply chain as a stencil manufacturer, improvements she sees from micromachined step stencils, and why she believes trying to have standardized stencil layouts is wishful thinking due to the many fluctuating variables.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
