Indium Corporation's Derrick Herron, technical support engineer, will serve as an expert presenter at ZESTRON’s Assembly, Cleaning, and Reliability Hands-on Workshop on June 10 in Franklin, Mass.

Herron will present Various Ways to Minimize Voiding Under Bottom Terminated Components. This discussion will include the common challenge in SMT of voiding under bottom-terminated packages. Voids in the solder joints can lead to hot spots and component damage. Herron will outline possible ways to combat this challenge, including changes in stencil design, changes in board pad design, or the use of solder preforms.
