Reading time ( words)

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.

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.
