Indium Corporation Expert: EPP Assembly Reliability Webinar

Indium Corporation Expert to Participate in EPP Assembly Reliability Webinar

Indium Corporation’s Andreas Karch, Regional Technical Manager, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, will be featured in a German-language webinar with Elektronik Produktion und Prüftechnik (EPP) on June 9 at 10 a.m. CET.

The specifications for the product lifetime validation of electronic assemblies are increasing due to the changing requirements as they relate to duration of use as well as service and ambient temperatures. This makes solder materials more critical, as the solder paste attributes have a direct correlation to these increased product service life reliability requirements. During his webinar, Highly Reliable Assemblies for Highly Effective Manufacturing Processes, Karch will discuss the parameters that should be taken into consideration and how to calculate the service life using the Coffin-Manson model. He’ll also share information about test standards and relevant solder materials that need to be optimized for a high-mix/low-volume scenario, thus placing heavier demands on the solder paste flux chemistry.
