Indium Features Indium3.2HF Pb-Free Water-Soluble Solder Paste at Productronica China

Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will feature Indium3.2HF water-soluble solder paste at Productronica China on March 15-17, 2016, at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China.

Indium3.2HF is an air or nitrogen reflow, water-soluble solder paste targeted at system-in-package (SiP) devices for the Internet-of-Things (IoT). It is specifically formulated to Avoid the Void™ by achieving exceptionally low voiding performance on ultra-fine-pitch components, including BGAs and CSPs.

Indium3.2HF accommodates the higher processing temperatures required by the SnAgCu, SnAg, SnSb, and other Pb-free alloy solder systems. Its unique formulation offers consistent, repeatable printing performance combined with a long stencil life and sufficient tack strength to handle the challenges of today’s high-speed and high-mix surface mount production lines. For larger passive devices, such as the decoupling capacitors used in many standard logic flip-chip applications, the paste reflows without creating large solder balls that can move under the logic die and cause electrical shorting.

In addition to consistent printing and reflow requirements, this solder paste offers superb wetting to the various Pb-free metallizations.

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.
