LED MOCVD Precursors
Metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) is the method of choice for depositing In- and Ga-containing layers in compound semiconductor applications. While MOCVD has a long history of creating GaAs-based devices, in recent years, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have grown rapidly in importance. In LEDs, the choice of material depends on the wavelength desired, and most semiconductor materials contain Ga or In, and other elements (for example red LEDs contain AlGaAs, green LEDs contain AlGaInP, blue LEDs contain InGaN).
The precursor materials used for In and Ga are tri-methyls of In or Ga, i.e., TMI (tri-methyl-indium) and TMG (tri-methyl-gallium). The starting materials for manufacturing these high-purity metal-organic precursor materials are indium trichloride and gallium trichloride, respectively.
Indium Corporation manufactures both indium trichloride and gallium trichloride for these markets.

Re-exploring solder paste's "five ball rule" in SMT stencil printing.
Brook Sandy-Smith, Technical Support Engineer for PCB Assembly Materials, and Phil Zarrow discuss the use of pallets when wave soldering and its impact on flux creep, which can potentially causing electrochemical migration. They also discuss the methods that can be used to uncover such issues.
