Indium to Showcase Durafuse Technology at EPP InnovationsFORUM

Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will showcase its innovative Durafuse technology at the EPP InnovationsFORUM on Tuesday, June 28 in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany.

The harmful effects of lead on human health and the environment are driving the development of high-temperature lead-free (HTLF) solders to replace high-Pb solders for die-attachment and clip-bond in power device applications. Indium Corporation’s innovative Durafuse HT features a novel design based on a mixed-alloy technology, designed to deliver a tin-rich HTLF paste, presenting the merits of both constituent alloys. Durafuse HT delivers:

  • Simplified processing; Durafuse HT is a drop-in replacement for high-Pb solder, with no special equipment needed and minimal process adjustments
  • Enhanced thermal cycling reliability; equal or higher than high-Pb solder
  • Lower RDS(on) compared to high-Pb solder 

Indium Corporation’s award-winning Durafuse LT is a patented low-temperature alloy system designed to provide high-reliability in low-temperature applications that require a reflow temperature below 210°C. Durafuse LT delivers:

  • Improved drop shock performance more than two orders of magnitude better than Bi-containing low-temperature materials
  • Drop shock performance equal or better than SAC305 with proper process optimization
  • Ideal characteristics for step soldering and low-temperature requirements

Mining for Metals Requires a Long View

06/15/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson talks with Shaun Dykes, a 50-year expert in the mining industry. Dykes gives a concise primer on mining development, and the amount of time and effort required to develop and supply the mineral resources we depend upon for the manufacture of printed circuit boards. There are many factors that play into when and where a mine is developed—and what can prevent a mine from ever producing minerals.

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

VJ Electronix: Automating the X-ray Inspection Process

05/04/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
VJ Electronix's Brennan Caissie shares the benefits of a new inspection tool that can be used on a variety of boards, with an automated system that takes the pressure off the manufacturing floor operators and can provide feedback all the way to the design process.
