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.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

PCB Design Training: More Critical Than Ever

09/05/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I interviewed Gary Ferrari of FTG at the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore. Gary is a co-founder of the IPC Designers Council and a longtime advocate for PCB design and PCB designers. We discussed the crucial role that PCB designers play in the entire electronics development process, and how IPC and the Designers Council are helping to educate and inform the next generation of designers.

eSMART Factory Conference 2019, Day 1

09/02/2019 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
The recent eSMART Factory Conference in June in Dearborn, Michigan, was the second annual conference on the smart factory. SMTA described it as "A technical conference with a focus on electronics manufacturing from software systems/processes to augmented reality and smart inspection." In this article, Happy Holden gives us the highlights of the conference.
