Indium Corporation is pleased to announce that Shital Rijal has joined the company as a product specialist.
In this role, Rijal supports the high-purity metals, compounds, and alloys business, focusing on growth for indium, gallium, germanium, and tin-containing products. He serves as an informational resource to both internal and external stakeholders through blog posts, conferences, trade shows, and launch events. His responsibilities also include preparing and monitoring technical data sheets and product web pages, building and nurturing customer relationships, and supporting the Sales and Marketing teams.
Prior to joining Indium Corporation, Rijal worked for four years as a research assistant, where he was involved in several projects that examined charged silica colloids, rate amplification of heterogeneous electrochemical reactions, and metal and crystal deposition. In that role, he was responsible for simulating and designing experiments; data acquisition, analysis, and documentation; and spectroscopic characterization. He also worked as a physics lecturer, teaching theory to and supervising laboratory classes of high school students. Rijal holds a Master’s of Science degree in physics from Kansas State University.

Brian O’Leary, head of Indium's e-Mobility & Infrastructure, reacts to SMTAI’s keynote delivered by John Thomas of Autel. The title of the keynote presentation was "The Electronic Vehicle (EV) Conundrum" which addressed the sheer scale of the transition to e-Mobility that we are now undertaking. In this interview, O’Leary discusses some of the technical challenges faced in product development by Indium (and everyone else) as well as the new IPC e-Mobility council. Participation in the council is open to everyone.

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 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.
