Indium's Brian O’Leary to Present on EV Electronics Reliability at AIAG Quality Summit


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Brian O’Leary, global head of e-Mobility and infrastructure, will present at the 2022 Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) Quality Summit on Oct. 5 in Novi, Michigan, US.

New technology creates new opportunities, but it also creates challenges. As vehicle systems and e-mobility increasingly rely on electronics as part of the design, the number of potential defect points explodes. Automotive’s desire for small and lightweight conflict with the desire for high power and flexibility.

In Achieving Zero Defects in Electronics-Dependent Systems, O’Leary will discuss opportunities for design, material, and process optimization and qualification to achieve high reliability and reach quality metrics while protecting innovation.

O'Leary is responsible for promoting Indium Corporation's full range of products and services for e-Mobility, which includes electric cars, trucks, eVTOLs, charging stations, etc. He joined Indium Corporation in 2014 and has more than 20 years of experience in the electronics industry. He authored two books on thermal profiling called Profiling Guide for Profitability and Profiling Guide for Six Sigma. He currently serves as the chair of the IPC EV (Electric Vehicle) Quality & Reliability Advisory Group. In addition to regular technical conference participation, he co-hosts a free monthly webcast—EV InSIDER Live—with Loren McDonald of EVAdoption and a high-profile industry stakeholder as a guest. In the webcast, they discuss current pressing issues and hot topics in the rapidly evolving electric vehicle landscape.

Four Silver Linings in the Stormy Clouds of Pandemic, Supply Chain, and Inflation

09/14/2022 | Dr. Ronald C. Lasky, Indium Corp.
It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.
