Indium's Eric Bastow to Present at 2016 Medical Electronics Symposium


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Eric Bastow, Assistant Technical Manager for the Americas, will present at 2016 Medical Electronics Symposium on Sept. 14-15 in Portland, Oregon. As no-clean soldering processes continue to dominate the electronics manufacturing world, ever-increasing miniaturization is putting pressure on solder paste manufacturers to produce solder pastes that can reliably print through smaller and smaller stencil apertures.

Bastow’s presentation provides an answer to the question: Does Solder Particle Size Impact the Electrical Reliability of a No-Clean Solder Paste Flux Residue? Bastow uses IPC J-STD-004B SIR (Surface Insulation Resistance) testing to determine if there is a measurable impact on the electrical reliability and, if so, is it substantial enough to be a cause for concern?

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

Happy’s Smart Factory Protocol Primer

04/29/2020 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
The smart factory concept is built upon data interchange as the foundation. There has been much development in the area of industrial and manufacturing data protocols over the years, stretching back into the 1960s. This article by Happy Holden surveys what are considered the most common protocols in use in the electronics manufacturing industry today, including IPC-CFX/ Hermes, OML, SECS/GEM, and MAPS.
