Indium Corporation Expert to Participate in iNEMI Technical Series

Indium Corporation’s Tim Jensen, global account manager and senior thermal technologist, will participate in the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative’s virtual Packaging Tech Topic series, offering his insights into the increased adoption of metal thermal interface materials (TIMs) in high-performance computing at 8 a.m. New York/2 p.m. Berlin/9 p.m. Beijing on Tuesday, March 8.

Managing heat dissipation continues to be a critical part of design as high-performance IC packages advance. With polymeric TIMs reaching physical limits relative to thermal conductivity, there is a need for higher performing materials. Metal TIMs, which have high bulk thermal conductivity, are playing a critical role in addressing this need.

Because there are widely divergent needs for TIMs, five categories of metal TIMs technology are available to address subsets of these needs. In his webinar Proliferation & Advancement of Metal TIMs in High Performance Computing, Jensen will review these material categories, performance attributes, and key assembly parameters to enable attendees to make intelligent decisions on when to consider metal TIMs and which category of metal TIM might be the most appropriate for a given application.
