Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Brandon Judd, Technical Support Engineer, will present at the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) Rocky Mountain chapter meeting on Jan. 26 at the Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colorado.

Judd will present The Benefits of Flux-Coated Solder Preforms in a QFN Assembly Process. This discussion will include a description of how solder preforms with modern flux coatings are used in conjunction with the appropriate solder paste to help reduce voiding under QFNs. He will also share the design and process parameters to ensure optimal results.

Judd provides technical support for Indium Corporation’s advanced SMT assembly materials, including solder pastes, thermal interface materials, fluxes, and engineered solders. He specializes in optimizing SMT lines, and has expertise in stencil printing parameters and reflow profiling. In addition to providing technical support, he performs testing on new products in Indium Corporation’s Advanced Materials and Process Development Lab.

Judd has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering technology from the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute. He is an SMTA-certified process engineer and earned his Six Sigma Green Belt from the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College.
