Indium, Ormet Ink Support Deal

Photonics.com
May 2010
CLINTON, N.Y., May 3, 2010 — Indium Corp., a materials supplier for the global electronics, semiconductor, solar, thin-film and thermal management markets, has signed a joint marketing and technical support agreement for high-temperature lead-free (Pb-free) electronics assembly materials patented and manufactured by Ormet Circuits Inc. of San Diego.

Under the terms of the agreement, the former company will offer a line of high-temperature, lead-free assembly materials that address the requirements of power semiconductor and semiconductor packaging applications.

The latter company, a conductive materials manufacturer, will leverage the former company’s global sales and technical support capabilities to offer the products into the electronics assembly, passive component assembly and semiconductor assembly markets. Indium will leverage the California-based company’s materials set.

GLOSSARY
electronics
That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
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.
thin film
A thin layer of a substance deposited on an insulating base in a vacuum by a microelectronic process. Thin films are most commonly used for antireflection, achromatic beamsplitters, color filters, narrow passband filters, semitransparent mirrors, heat control filters, high reflectivity mirrors, polarizers and reflection filters.
