Indium Corporation's Dr. Ning-Cheng Lee, vice president of technology, will present Voiding Control and Reliability of Solder Joints with Backward Compatibility as part of a webinar sponsored by the SMTA on February 7, 2013, from 1-2:30 p.m.

The webinar supports electronics manufacturers as they seek to reduce defects, improve product quality, and increase their profitability.

Dr. Lee will analyze the voiding performance and reliability of a backward compatible system in terms of surface mount technology reflow profiles and alloy combinations, and compare it with tin-lead and lead-free systems.

Dr. Lee has extensive experience in the development of solder pastes, fluxes, high-temperature polymers, microelectronics encapsulants, underfills, and adhesives for electronics assembly. His current research interests include advanced materials for interconnects and packaging for electronics and optoelectronics applications, with emphasis on both high-performance and low-cost of ownership. Dr. Lee is an SMTA Member of Distinction and a member of the SMTAI planning committee.
