Indium to Lead Special Session on Void Reduction at SMTA International


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation will chair a special session focusing on void reduction in bottom-terminated components (BTCs) at the SMTA International Conference on Sept. 29 in Rosemont, Illinois.

Voiding is of critical concern in today's electronics assembly arena, especially in BTCs, due to impacts on electrical, thermal, and mechanical performance.

Brook Sandy-Smith, Technical Support Engineer for PCB Assembly Materials, will moderate BTC Void Reduction For Yield and Performance Enhancement, which will focus on reliability, materials, reflow, and inspection. Raiyo Aspandiar of Intel Corporation will co-chair the session.

The following presentations will offer participants information and best practices to Avoid the Void™:

  • Component and Solder Joint Reliability With Voiding by Dave Hillman, Rockwell Collins;
  • Materials to Mitigate Voiding in Electronics Assembly by Dr. Ron Lasky, Indium Corporation Senior Technologist;
  • Reflow Strategies to Minimize Voiding by Dave Heller, Heller Industries;
  • Accurate Reflow Profiling to Minimize Voiding by Marybeth Allen, KIC
  • X-Ray Inspection Strategies to Accurately Characterize Voiding by Keith Bryant, YXLON International

SMTAI is a world-class electronics manufacturing conference and exhibition organized by the SMTA — the world's leading user group for surface mount and companion technologies. The conference provides high-quality technical information and networking opportunities.

Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
