Indium Corporation Experts to Present at IPC APEX 2016


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Vice President of Technology, Dr. Ning-Cheng Lee, will present at the IPC APEX Expo technical conference on March 13-17 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dr. Lee will give his presentation A Novel Solution for No-Clean Flux Not Fully Dried Under Component Terminations at the Flux Reliability technical session at 1:30 p.m. on March 16. He will talk about a new halogen-free no-clean SnAgCu solder paste that exhibits very good SIR and SMT assembly performance, including low QFN voiding and high HIP resistance.

Dr. Lee will also present High Reliability Performance and Mechanism of Pressureless Sintering of Nano-Ag Paste for Die-Attach during the Nano-Materials (for PCB Fabrication and Component Die-Attach) technical session at 10:30 a.m. on March 17. This presentation discusses a novel silver paste that has been developed without any polymeric inclusion for the pressureless sintering die-attach process. This new paste has been designed to address the challenges of service temperature, thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, and reliability in die-attach for high-power devices such as IGBT.

  • Flux Specifications Task Group – Standards Development committee meeting
  • Flux Reliability II technical session with speaker Eric Bastow

Indium Corporation will also conduct one-on-one meetings on how to Avoid the Void™ to achieve reliability, productivity, and satisfied customers. Experts will be at Indium Corporation’s booth #3028 to discuss unique applications, provide insights, and answer questions From One Engineer To Another. 

Dr. Lee is a world-renowned soldering expert and an SMTA Member of Distinction. He has extensive experience in the development of high-temperature polymers, encapsulants for microelectronics, underfills, and adhesives. His current research interests include advanced materials for interconnects, and packaging for electronics and optoelectronics applications, with an emphasis on both high-performance and low cost of ownership.

Bastow is an SMTA-Certified Process Engineer. He provides technical support for Indium Corporation’s full range of solder products for the electronics assembly, semiconductor packaging, and thermal management markets. He earned his Six Sigma Green Belt from the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH.

Sandy-Smith serves as a technical liaison between Indium Corporation’s customers and internal departments, such as research and development, and production to ensure that customers have the best quality and selection of products. She has earned degrees in chemical engineering, with a focus on materials, and German language from the international engineering program at the University of Rhode Island.

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.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
