Indium Corporation Expert to Host Power Electronics Webinar

Indium Corporation’s Karthik Vijay, Technical Manager, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, will host a power electronics webinar featuring InFORMS® as part of Indium Corporation’s InSIDER Series on Webex at 11 a.m. EST on Tuesday, June 23.

Due to increasing electrification, especially in automotive power modules and RF communication, it is clear that uniform bondline control between the substrate and baseplate has a direct link to mechanical reliability. An uneven bondline can result in early cracking and solder layer delamination due to stress concentration at the thinner joint areas. In Power Electronics: Improve Bondline Control & Reliability with a Reinforced Matrix Solder Solution, Vijay will examine how InFORMS®, a reinforced matrix solder composite preform (and patent-pending ribbon), deliver uniform bondline control and enhanced reliability by a factor of 2X while achieving the lowest cost of ownership. A live question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Indium Corporation’s InSIDER Series is a free program designed to deliver expert technical content, share industry knowledge, and promote professional growth using a virtual platform.
