AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for the electronics industry, announced today their attendance at the 2nd Annual Flex Invitational which took place on May 5th, 2016 in Guadalajara, Mexico at El Cielo Country Club. The Flex Invitational Golf Tournament is held as a charity event to help raise awareness and money for children with cancer at the Hospital Civil de Guadalajara.

AIM participated in the 2nd Annual Flex Invitational Golf Tournament to help raise money to benefit the Vivan los Ninos con Cancer AC Foundation. All proceeds were given to the Vivan los Ninos con Cancer AC Foundation to purchase a Spectra Optia® Apheresis System for Hospital Civil de Guadalajara. This system is a transportable therapeutic apheresis system that uses continuous flow centrifugation and optical detection technology. The Spectra Optia® Apheresis System allows operators to spend more time focusing on patient care during protocols such as mononuclear cell collection, bone marrow processing, and therapeutic plasma exchange.

“We are glad that we had the pleasure to contribute with Flex for such an important cause,” said Rodrigo Cacho, AIM’s Latin America Sales Manager. “I have been working with AIM for twelve years and I am proud to be part of a company that sincerely cares about putting people first and helping those in need.”

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.

True or False: CFX Edition
