Indium’s Ed Briggs, senior technical support engineer, will present at the International Conference on Soldering and Reliability Wednesday, May 14 in Toronto, Canada.
Briggs’ presentation, Meeting Future Stencil Printing Challenges with Ultrafine Powder Solder Pastes, discusses a statistical comparison of the transfer efficiency of different solder powder particle sizes, specifically types 3, 4, 5, and 6, and reviews observations of post-reflow results in both optimal and harsh conditions.

Bauer Award for Excellence in Chemistry, and earned his Six Sigma Green Belt from Dartmouth College. Briggs joined Indium Corporation in 1990 and has held a variety of positions in production and technical support.
