Indium expert to host tin whiskers webinar

25 August 2021 Events

Tin whiskers are thinner than a human hair, but these electrically conductive structures have been known to cause sudden failures and intermittent problems due to their ability to short closely-spaced electronic circuits.


Dr Ron Lasky.

On Tuesday, 19 October, Indium’s senior technologist, Dr Ron Lasky, will host a webinar on these crystalline structures of tin as part of the company’s free webinar programme, the InSIDER Series.

First reported in the 1940s and 1950s, tin whiskers continue to be a major concern for the electronics assembly industry. Dr Lasky will provide an explanation of tin whiskers and provide insight into their formation, as well as summarise their potential risks and mitigation techniques.

He will also provide a description of failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) as a technique to assess tin whisker risk for a given technology, which will then be discussed. He will conclude this workshop with a discussion of tin whisker reliability strategies for consumer and mission-critical products. At the end of the presentation, attendees will have all the basic relevant information to develop an effective tin whisker strategy.

Registration for the webinar is open at https://indium.news/3mA0ZJ7
