Indium Corporation's Vice President of Technology Dr. Ning-Cheng Lee will deliver the keynote presentation at the IMAPS 44th International Symposium on Microelectronics, October 9-13, 2011, in Long Beach, CA. His presentation, Trends of Solder Alloy Development, will discuss the evolution of lead-free soldering as the industry moves rapidly toward green manufacturing.

In addition, Indium Corporation will be presenting four papers at the technical conference.

Dr. Lee will present Epoxy Flux - A Low Cost High Reliability Approach for PoP Assembly. This paper describes the benefits of using epoxy flux to reinforce the solder joints of assembled package-on-package (PoP).

Ronald C. Lasky, Ph.D., P.E., Senior Technologist, will present Applications of Solder Preforms to Improve Reliability, which explains the process, design, and assembly methods for solder fortification® using preforms.

Seth J. Homer, Product Specialist, will present Evaluation of Test Protocol for Eutectic Die-Attach using High Power LEDs. This paper details process recommendations for the implementation of eutectic gold-tin (AuSn) materials in high-power semiconductor devices, such as high-brightness LEDs.

Jacques Matteau, Global Sales Manager, will present Nanobond® Assembly: A Rapid, Room Temperature Soldering Process, which describes the benefits, process, and applicability of this revolutionary technology.

Dr. Lee is a world-renown soldering expert and an SMTA Member of Distinction. He has extensive experience in the development of high-temperature polymers, encapsulants for microelectronics, underfills, and adhesives. His current research interests cover advanced materials for interconnects and packaging for electronics and optoelectronics applications, with emphasis on both high performance and low cost of ownership.

Dr. Lasky has more than 30 years experience in electronic and optoelectronic packaging and assembly, including work at IBM, Universal Instruments, and Cookson Electronics. He has authored or edited five books on science, electronics, and optoelectronics, as well as several technical papers and articles for Scientific American.
