  • Indium’s Andy Mackie Joins Editorial Board
Oct 2008
AndyMackie.jpgIndium Corp. announced that its semiconductor assembly materials product manager, Dr. Andy C. Mackie, has joined the editorial board of Chip Scale Review, a magazine covering the chip-scale, flip chip, and wafer-level packaging market. Mackie has over 19 years of experience in new product development, sales, and marketing for electronics assembly and semiconductor packaging. He is an industry expert in solder paste printing, reflow, and atmosphere control in electronics assembly. In 2001, he received the IPC President's Award for his leadership in IPC's solder paste task group and the assembly and joining materials subcommittee. Mackie has a PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Nottingham, UK, and a master of science degree in surface and colloid chemistry from the University of Bristol, UK. He is trained in Six Sigma "Design of Experiments" and has written numerous published papers. Indium, based in Clinton, N.Y., is a materials supplier to the electronics assembly, semiconductor fabrication and packaging, solar photovoltaic, and thermal management markets.

flip chip
An optical switch that controls conduction paths into and out of a junction in fiber optic and integrated optical circuits.
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...
