Indium Corporation Expert to Present at CHARGED EVs Virtual Conference


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Joseph Hertline, Product Manager – ESM/Power Electronics, will present on materials solutions for high-reliability power electronics assembly during CHARGED Electric Vehicles (EVs) virtual conference, Sept. 1-3.

As power devices evolve to handle increased power density, higher junction temperatures, and smaller packaging, the enhanced requirements for high-reliability power electronics have posed many challenges to the packing and assembly processes. During The Challenges of High-Reliability Power Electronics Assembly and the Emerging Materials Solutions, Hertline will analyze the major challenges within substrate- and die-attach applications, as well as provide an overview of the innovative materials solutions that can help achieve high power density and promote better heat dissipation, resulting in highly-reliable power devices. 

Hertline is the Product Manager for engineered solder materials focusing on power electronics applications. He is responsible for driving the growth of the power electronics product line through development and implementation of marketing strategies supported by customer experience, emerging technologies, and industry feedback. He also collaborates with Indium Corporation's sales, technical support, R&D, production, and quality teams to serve existing customers and grow new business in his designated market. Prior to joining Indium Corporation in the spring of 2020, Hertline spent more than 10 years as an engineer and product manager in the electronics industry. He earned a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and an MBA from Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY.

CHARGED EVs virtual conference includes live webinar sessions and interactive Q&As, as well as new on-demand webinars and whitepaper downloads available in the weeks leading up to the event. Conference topics will span the entire EV engineering supply chain and ecosystem, including motor and power electronics design and manufacturing, cell development, battery systems, testing, powertrains, thermal management, circuit protection, wire and cable, EMI/EMC, and more.

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.
