Indium Corporation Features InFORMS® Reinforced Solder Preforms at NEPCON South China 2017

InFORMS-Reinforced-SolderIndium Corporation will feature its reinforced solder alloy fabrications, InFORMS®, at NEPCON South China 2017, Aug. 29-31 in Shenzhen, China.

Indium Corporation is redefining solder with its InFORMS® solder preforms. InFORMS® are a composite preform consisting of solder and a reinforcing matrix. Together, lateral strength is increased and bondline co-planarity is improved. In addition, superior thermal cycling reliability can be achieved.

When InFORMS® were used to solder a DBC to the baseplate of an IGBT, one study showed:

  • 4x improved thermal cycling reliability compared to a solder preform-only approach
  • 2x improved thermal cycling reliability compared to a solder preform + Al wirebond stitch approach
  • Reduced voiding (<1%)
  • Lower cost of ownership – as a drop-in replacement for a standard preform or solder paste, InFORMS® require no additional process steps or equipment
