AIM’s Mehran Maalekian Ph.D. to Present White Paper at TMS 2016


Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for the electronics industry, is pleased to announce that Dr. Mehran Maalekian, AIM’s Research and Development Manager, will present his white paper “Effects of Ag, Ni and Bi Additions on Melting and Solderability of Lead-Free Solders” at TMS 2016 on February 16th, 2016 at 4:25 pm in room 201A of the Tennessee Music City Center.

Dr. Maalekian’s white paper covers the effects of Ag, Ni and Bi additions on melting and wetting behavior of the Sn0.7Cu alloy. Sn-0.7Cu eutectic composition can be an attractive option among lead-free alloys due to its low cost and relatively good solderability. However, it has relatively high melting point.  Dr. Maalekian will cover the role Ag, Ni and Bi play in the melting point of this alloy. In addition, the wetting behavior of the alloys will be compared and effect of alloying and melting temperature on wettability will also be discussed.

Dr. Mehran Maalekian is experienced in materials engineering with a focus on physical metallurgy, soldering, modelling in materials engineering, and thermo-mechanical processes. Since the start of his career Dr. Maalekian has received numerous recognitions such as; the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Award, the Henry Granjon Prize, and IWS-Sossenheimer Award. Dr. Maalekian has been involved in numerous research studies and papers in the industry.

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
