  • Indium, Metallic Resources Solder Joint Alloy Deal
Jun 2007
Indium Corp. of Clinton, N.Y., announced an agreement to market Metallic Resources Inc.'s Cobalt995 (99Sn 0.5Cu <0.05Co) Pb-free (lead-free) alloy, an alternative to SAC (Sn/Ag/Cu) alloys used in solder joints for standard wave-Indium-Cobalt995.jpgsoldering applications. Metallic Resources, based in Twinsburg, Ohio, has been marketing Cobalt995 for wave, HASL (hot air solder-level) and SMT (surface-mount technology) applications for over a year. Indium will develop complimentary and compatible cored wire and solder-paste products and will market bar solder for wave applications. Metallic Resources supplies solders and materials for the electronics assembly and metal-joining markets. Indium is a provider of electronics assembly and semiconductor packaging materials including solder pastes, solder preforms, fluxes, Pb-free solder alloys, underfill materials and die-attach materials, and commercial-grade and high-purity indium.

Metal used in components of the crystalline semiconductor alloys indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs), indium gallium arsenide phosphide (InGaAsP), and the binary semiconductor indium phosphide (InP). The first two are lattice-matched to InP as the light-emitting medium for lasers or light-emitting diodes in the 1.06- to 1.7-µm range, and the last are used as a substrate and cladding layer.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
