Indium Corporation’s Andreas Karch, Regional Technical Manager for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, will present at the EPP InnovationsFORUM Germany on March 5 in Böblingen, Germany.

Markets for electronic devices and assemblies are currently undergoing rapid change due to ever-shorter development times in the industrial and automotive sectors. In his presentation, "Individual Electronic Products Require Innovative Solder Materials: New Solder Materials Adapted for Temperature Application Areas," Karch examines how new high-performance applications, such as “multicopters” and semi-autonomous vehicles, are driving demands for new high-reliability solder alloys.

Karch shares process knowledge with and makes technical recommendations for the use of Indium Corporation’s materials to customers in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, including solder paste, solder preforms, fluxes, and thermal management materials. Karch has more than 20 years of automotive industry experience in PCB and power electronics, including the advanced development of customized electronics. He received an award for the developing one of the top 10 innovative patents for automotive LED assembly. Karch is an ECQA-certified integrated design engineer and holds a Six Sigma Yellow Belt. His thorough understanding of process technologies and project management skills reinforces Indium Corporation’s commitment to providing world-class service to our customers in Europe.

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
