March 21, 2024

Indium Corporation's Principal Engineer – Advanced Materials Andy C. Mackie, Ph.D., MSc,  is scheduled to present on day one of the 2024 Critical Materials Council (CMC) Conference taking place April 10-11 in Chandler, AZ, U.S.  The two-day event provides actionable information, on materials and supply-chains, for current and future semiconductor manufacturing.

Dr. Mackie's presentation, titled From SiP to SiC: Advanced Metal Alloys Meet Evolving Reliability Challenges, will examine the continuing importance of metals in advanced digital and power packaging for both electrical and thermal electronics assembly. 

"Engineered alloys for assembly materials, along with novel and emerging assembly processes, are enabling the future of electronics assembly and packaging," said Dr. Mackie. "I look forward to exploring this timely topic with my industry colleagues at CMC."

Dr. Mackie focuses on identifying the intersection of novel materials, emerging technologies, and their potential business impact. His professional experience covers all aspects of materials and processes for electronics manufacturing from wafer fabrication to semiconductor assembly and packaging and SMT/electronics assembly. Dr. Mackie holds a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Nottingham, UK, and a Master of Science (MSc) in physical chemistry and surface science from the University of Bristol, UK.
