Indium Corporation's Vice President of Solder Products Business Unit, Ross Berntson, will present a workshop on "Full Metal TIMs" at the Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium & Tabletop Exhibition in Kauai, Hawaii on 22-24 January 2008. "Full Metal TIMs" will explore the handling of liquid, compressible, and phase change metals as thermal interface materials (TIM), and their appropriate application for reliable performance. Metal TIMs offer substantially high thermal conductivity and low thermal interface resistance, enabling the design of smaller and higher power electronic devices. Sponsored by the SMTA, the 13th Annual Pan Pacific Microelectronics Symposium focuses on the critical business markets and technologies of microelectronic packaging, interconnection, microsystems, nanotechnology, and assembly.
