Indium Corporation’s Maria Durham will present at IMAPS’ Advanced Technology Workshop and Tabletop Exhibition on Advances in Semiconductor Packaging Sept. 22 at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Utica, N.Y.

Maria Durham, Technical Support Engineer for Semiconductor and Advanced Assembly Materials, will present Meeting Solder Paste Printing Challenges for SiP in “Smart” IoT Devices. Her presentation will cover ultra-fine pitch solder paste printing to meet the needs of system-in-package (SiP) mobile devices, with a focus on attachment of 01005 and 008004 passive devices.

Additionally, Derrick Herron, Technical Support Engineer, will serve as chair for the Test/Reliability/Modeling session.

Durham serves as technical liaison between Indium Corporation’s customers and internal departments, such as sales, research and development, and operations to guarantee the best quality and selection of products. She earned her bachelor’s degree in physics and applied mathematics from Clarkson University, Potsdam, N.Y.

Herron provides technical service to customers in the northeastern United States. Previously, he spent more than six years developing solder paste and flux technologies in Indium Corporation’s research and development laboratory. Herron earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, Okla. He received his Six Sigma Green Belt from the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College, and is certified in IPC-A-600 and IPC-A-610-D.

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.
