Indium Corporation expert presents at SMTA ICSR 2016
Indium Corporation’s Brook Sandy-Smith, Technical Support Engineer for PCB Assembly Materials, will present at the International Conference on Soldering and Reliability (ICSR) 2016 on May 9-11 in Toronto, Canada.
Sandy-Smith will present How Stencil Design and Reflow Profiles Affect Variation in QFN Voiding Data: A Case Study. This presentation will include data from several studies that demonstrate how stencil design and reflow profile optimization impacts voiding levels and variation in material comparison testing.
Sandy-Smith is a Technical Support Engineer, specializing in printed circuit board assembly materials, particularly solder paste. She conducts application testing and qualifications for new product introductions. Sandy-Smith earned degrees in chemical engineering (with a focus on materials) and German language from the University of Rhode Island. She previously worked in R&D, developing conductive adhesives for die- and strap-attach, as well as conductive inks for RFID applications. Her areas of expertise include analytical testing of conductive materials, applications such as screen-printing and jet dispensing (jetting), as well as scale-up and pre-production of developmental materials.
The SMTA is an international network of professionals who build skills, share practical experience, and develop solutions in electronics assembly technologies, including microsystems, emerging technologies, and related business operations.
