Indium Corporation Expert to Present at IMAPS European Workshop


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Tim Jensen, Senior Product Manager, Solder Preform and Thermal Technology, will present on metal thermal interface materials during the IMAPS European Advanced Technology Workshop on Micropackaging and Thermal Management, Feb. 5-6 in La Rochelle, France.

Metal thermal interface materials have played a niche role in thermal applications for many years. Due to their high thermal conductivity, they have the potential to be a high-performing thermal interface material (TIM). Jensen’s presentation, "Low Melt Alloy Development for Use as a Thermal Interface Material," reviews how metal TIMs are used today in thermal applications as a solder, compressible pad, liquid metal, phase change material, and solid/liquid hybrids. He’ll also examine how low-melting point alloy TIMs can have broad uses in TIM1 and TIM2 applications where high heat dissipation is required.

Jensen has more than 20 years of experience working with customers troubleshooting and optimizing SMT process lines and solving defects, such as head-in-pillow, graping, and QFN voiding. Jensen has worked directly on hundreds of surface mount lines and developed a number of different products. Using that direct knowledge and expertise, he works closely with Indium Corporation’s technical service, sales, and research and development teams to develop cutting-edge products that address the unique challenges faced by the electronics assembly industry. As Senior Product Manager, Jensen is responsible for Indium Corporation’s most diverse product group, which includes solder preforms, wire, ribbon and foil, as well as thermal interface materials. He has authored numerous process and technical guidelines and has presented at numerous industry forums and conferences. In addition to his responsibilities at Indium Corporation, Tim also serves on the SMTA’s Board of Directors. In this role, he is part of the Strategic Development Committee where he leads the effort on international expansion. He earned his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Clarkson University and his master’s in business administration from Syracuse University.

Is Your EMS Partner Up to Speed With WEEE 'Open Scope?'

10/23/2019 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
E-waste encompasses a myriad of "unseen" metals, semi-metals, and chemical compounds that are found inside circuit boards, wires, and electrical connections. If not handled correctly, chemicals—such as cadmium, barium, lithium, lead, mercury, and beryllium—can present a significant health risk through direct contact, the inhalation of toxic fumes, or the build-up of toxins in water, soil, and food products.

Conformal Coatings

08/01/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
While conformal coatings may have been something of an afterthought at the front of the design process, that can no longer be the case. Conformal coatings are now a critical part of any board assembly that might be subjected to challenging conditions. But coatings can also contribute to increased mean time between failure in any conditions, even environmentally controlled environments.

Synergy Between Smart Manufacturing and the Secure Supply Chain (Part 1)

05/29/2019 | Michael Ford, Aegis Software Corp.
As MRP and ERP functions follow computing trends and start to migrate into the cloud, a fundamental question is being raised as to whether these are still the right tools to use in today’s modern Industry 4.0 driven factory, or whether these need to evolve, be enhanced, or even replaced in order to meet the more extreme requirements of operational flexibility, as well as cope with volatile material availability in the market.
