Indium Corporation’s Dr. Ron Lasky, Senior Technologist, will host an Avoid the Void workshop on how to avoid voiding in bottom terminated components (BTCs) on Thursday, June 11 at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. EST on Indium Corporation’s webinar program, the InSIDER Series.

BTCs are one of the most common packages in electronics today with the highest growth rate due to their small size, excellent electrical performance, and ability to transfer heat away from the integrated circuit (IC). In his workshop, Understand and Troubleshoot Voiding in Bottom Terminated Components, Dr. Lasky will discuss how voids form in QFNs and how to minimize them. He’ll also cover factors that affect voiding, such as stencil design, stencil thickness, reflow profile, solder paste particle size, and solder pastes. The use of solder preforms to minimize voiding will also be presented.

Dr. Lasky’s workshop is offered as part of Indium Corporation’s free webinar program, the InSIDER Series. Register for his workshop here. All of Indium Corporations webinars can be found at http://www.indium.com/webinar.
