Original Press Release:

Indium Corporation is Redefining Solder with InFORMS Solder Preforms and Ribbon

Indium Corporation is redefining solder with its reinforced solder alloy fabrications, InFORMS.

InFORMS® solder preforms and patent-pending ribbon are composite preforms consisting of solder with a reinforcing matrix. This results in:

  • Improved mechanical and thermal reliability
  • Uniform bondline thickness
  • Low-voiding performance

InFORMS® do more than just bond two surfaces.These solder preforms were designed to address some specific challenges to the power electronics industry.

InFORMS® provide engineers with an enhanced material for the development of more reliable and higher performance modules. Due to the planarity improvements and stand-off tolerances, the package design becomes more predictable. In addition, stronger and more dependable joints allow for high power densities.
