Indium Corporation’s Senior Global Product Manager for Semiconductor and Advanced Materials Sze Pei Lim is set to deliver a presentation at ICEP 2023 in Kumamoto, Japan, on April 19. The presentation will cover the findings from a technical paper, co-authored by R&D Manager for the Alloy Group HongWen Zhang, titled An In-Containing Lower-Temperature Lead-Free Solder Paste for Wafer-Level Package Application that Outperforms SAC305.
In recent years, more interest has been shown in adopting low-temperature solders/materials in various applications in order to decrease the dynamic warpage of highly-integrated packages; reduce energy consumption during assembly; and mitigate risk for temperature-sensitive sensors. Durafuse ® LT, an In- containing solder paste, was developed and used in mobile phone assembly with a 200°C peak reflow temperature profile. Now an increased interest exists for low-temperature processing for first-level interconnects. Therefore, more research is needed to identify any reliability implications for SnAgCu based bumps creating an interconnect using Durafuse ® LT solder paste material.
As Senior Global Product Manager for Semiconductor and Advanced Materials, Lim works closely with R&D and manufacturing, and engages with the world’s leading semiconductor companies and contract manufacturers. She is a task force member of the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative’s (iNEMI) Packaging Technology Integration Group and has co-chaired a number of industry projects and road mapping initiatives over the past five years. She is also on the executive committee of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Packaging Society Malaysia Chapter. Lim is a part of the organizing committee for the International Electronics Manufacturing Technology (IEMT). She has authored a number of technical papers and presented regularly in various international technical conferences. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the National University of Singapore, where she majored in industrial chemistry with a focus in polymers. She is a Certified SMT Process Engineer and has earned her Six Sigma Green Belt designation
