Indium Corporation Features Metal Thermal Interface Materials for Burn-In and Test at TestConX

Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature its metal thermal interface materials (TIMs) for burn-in and test at TestConX, March 5-8 in Mesa, Ariz., U.S.

As an industry leader in high-performance metal thermal interface materials (TIMs), Indium Corporation will feature selections from its portfolio of innovative high-performance metal TIM solutions.

Indium Corporation’s indium-containing TIMs for burn-in and test offer superior thermal conductivity over non-metals—with pure indium metal delivering 86W/mK. Its indium-containing TIMs are available as pure indium, indium-silver alloys, and indium-tin, among others. The pure indium TIM can be clad with a thin aluminum layer on the side facing the device under test (DUT) to prevent the indium from adhering to the surface. Indium Corporation’s suite of Heat-Spring® solutions, featuring a compressible interface between a heat source and a heat-sink, include:

Heat-Spring® Preforms

  • Patterned to optimize contact with non-planar surfaces delivering 86W/mK
  • Provides uniform contact between the burn-in head and the DUT
  • Provides more uniform thermal conductivity
  • Cleans with no residue
  • Recyclable and reclaimable

Heat-Spring® HSK

  • Recommended specifically for burn-in applications where multiple insertions are required
  • Provides uniform contact with low resistance for high-density heat loads
  • Typically clad with a thin diffusion barrier, which serves as the contact surface for burn-in and test applications
  • No staining or cracking

Heat-Spring HSD

  • Designed for interfaces with tight surface control >30psi
  • Recommended for small, well-designed interfaces with flat, smooth, parallel surfaces

Optimizing Test Engineering Practices for High-Mix Electronics Manufacturing

08/15/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
For PCB and assembly manufacturers, test engineering has become a critical factor in enhancing the profitability of new product introductions (NPIs). Given the trend toward high-mix, low-volume production, the journey from design data to an automated PCB testing program must be quicker and more efficient than ever before. In this article, we will discuss how to optimize the efficiency of the test engineering process in accordance with these new market realities.
