Many applications call for TIM that can easily be placed on a chip, on a lid or perhaps just against a heat source and a cooling solution contact plate. We developed a metal TIM which would work as a compressible Interface Solution for such an application. Our pressure range is 35psi to 100+ psi.

An SMA-TIM made of indium offers uniform thermal resistance at lower applied stresses in compressed interfaces. The malleability of indium minimizes surface resistance and increases heat flow. Our patented Heat-Spring® technology will further reduce the thermal resistance.
Indium's line of high-end thermal interface materials delivers superior performance over time. As SMA-TIM products are made of metal, they cannot experience pump out problems even under power cycling. The Heat-Spring® material, which does not contain silicone, will conform to surface disparities over time, thereby reducing thermal resistance through the life of the TIM. Due to its solid state, the SMA-TIM also resists bake out.

Indium preforms offer very precise volumes of solder, and are cut to fit some very interesting bond-line shapes. Some examples of preform applications are: bonding lids on sealed packages, thermal interfaces, and custom cut cryogenic sealing gaskets. We even know how to make a boring old rectangular…
The 46th International Symposium on Microelectronics will be held in Orlando, Florida, September 30th through October 3rd, 2013. I will be attending both as as an exhibitor and as a session co-chair. TECHNICAL SESSION: This year there will be 6 technical tracks: Interposers & 2.5/3D Packaging Modeling,…
Being the Indium Corporation, we know what indium is, where it comes from, and how to use it. But sometimes we forget that not everyone is as immersed in indium as we are. So what is indium? Of course it is an element with an atomic number of 49, an atomic weight of 114.818amu, a relative…
