Indium Corporation was presented with the SMT China Vision Award for its Indium10.1 solder paste at NEPCON China on April 21 in Shanghai, China.

The SMT China Vision Award recognizes domestic and international companies with innovative products and technologies in SMT methods, processes, materials, equipment, software, and management services. Each product entry was evaluated based on its creativeness, technological advancement, and contributions to help reduce cost, improve quality, increase efficiency, enhance reliability, ensure safety, and protect the environment.

Indium10.1 is a Pb-free halogen-containing solder paste with the lowest levels of voiding for QFNs, BGAs, and pads with large ground planes.

The oxidation-inhibiting properties of Indium10.1 provide industry-leading head-in-pillow and graping resistance with complete coalescence, even after long reflow profiles. The exceptional soldering ability of Indium10.1 makes it the best solution for components with less-than-ideal solderability and challenging RF shield metallizations.

Indium10.1 offers the lowest cost-of-ownership to PCB assembly manufacturers through best-in-class printing and soldering performance, including best-in-class print definition and transfer efficiency, low-voiding performance, and head-in-pillow and graping resistance.
