Indium Corporation to Feature Precision Materials for 5G Communications During IMS


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature its precision materials for high-reliability 5G communications during the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) virtual exhibition from Aug. 4-6.

Indium Corporation provides a suite of leading-edge materials and technology expertise to solve the evolving challenges of 5G communication applications. This includes AuLTRA® ThInFORMS™—0.00035” thick (0.00889mm or 8.89μm) 80Au20Sn preforms that improve the overall operational efficiency of high-output lasers commonly used in 5G communication infrastructure.

AuLTRA® ThInFORMS™ help combat common issues, such as:

  • Shorting—reduced solder volume inhibits wicking up the die, minimizing the risk of shorting
  • Poor thermal transfer—the ultra-thin 0.00035” preform reduces bond-line thickness (BLT), thus improving thermal transfer and increasing the longevity and performance of the device

Indium Corporation also offers off-eutectic AuSn alloy options. These materials are designed to control wetting and voiding, yielding a high-reliability solder joint for critical high-power, high-frequency applications.

The IMS virtual exhibition will facilitate the benefits of a face-to-face trade show on a digital platform. For information on this topic or to chat with our experts, visit Indium Corporation’s virtual booth.

Northrop Grumman: 3D Nanomaterials May Counter Gaps in Additive Supply Chain

10/22/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
The best technology is dead in the water if your domestic supply chain won’t support it. That was just one of the takeaways from Dr. Judy Dickson’s talk during the SMTA Additive Electronics TechXchange. In her presentation, titled “Advanced PWBs: A Collaboration Between Design, Operations, and the Supply Chain,” Dickson, a senior principal systems engineer at Northrop Grumman Mission Systems, laid out the many challenges her department faces in fielding HDI advanced packaging into the next decade. Most of these challenges are related to sourcing the necessary materials in the U.S.
