Indium Corporation to Host Webinar on Material Technology for Power Module Soldering and Sintering
February 7, 2023
Indium Corporation's Joe Hertline, Product Manager for Engineered Solder Materials (ESM)/Power Electronics, will host a webinar to discuss an emerging material technology which has the ability to provide robust tacking strength while reducing dependency on customized fixturing. The webinar, a part of the company's InSIDER Series, will be held live at 8:30 a.m. (EST), Tuesday, February 28 and made available for on-demand viewing afterward.
Reliance on complex, costly alignment fixturing is growing as power module designers seek repeatable manufacturing and to achieve high-reliability performance. Flux-free soldering techniques are being deployed widely to meet the increasing requirements for quality, low voiding, and cleanliness driven by automotive/EV use cases. The emergence of sintering materials for SiC module applications are also a key consideration as manufacturers look at opportunities to scale processes and leverage high-performance properties.
In this webinar, Hertline will present how InTACK™ material technology can be applied during assembly to provide robust tacking strength and reduce dependency on customized fixturing. The absence of residue and contamination with InTACK™ make it a viable option for flux-free soldering and sintering applications where cleanliness directly influences reliability performance. Test data will be analyzed to evaluate material characteristics for dispensing, tack strength, and post-processing, and case studies will be reviewed to demonstrate opportunities for reduced process steps, cycle time, and overall cost of ownership in power module manufacturing.
