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.

Phil Zarrow: Seth, let’s discuss Indium Corporation’s thermal interface materials a bit.
Seth Homer: Sure. Indium Corporation produces metal thermal interface materials, as opposed to what you see in the industry phase-change materials, polymers, and that sort of thing. The advantages of our thermal interface offering is that they’re all metal, so thermal conductivity is extremely high.
Phil Zarrow: Why does the indium metal work so well, as a thermal interface?
The 47th International Symposium on Microelectronics will be held in San Diego, CA, on October13th through the 16th, 2014. Here’s the IMAPS 2014 program. The Indium Corporation will be...
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...
