Indium Corporation’s Strategic Advisor Dr. Dongkai Shangguan will share his technical insight and expertise on advanced packaging at the Advanced System in Package Technology Conference & Exhibition, organized by the International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society (IMAPS), on Tuesday, June 21 in Sonoma, Calif., U.S.

As advanced packaging continues to drive towards heterogeneous integration, new materials need to be developed to address the many challenges faced in the assembly process. In his presentation, Innovative Materials for Advanced Packaging and System in Package (SiP), he will examine innovative materials for advanced packaging and SiP, particularly for small form factor modules, including solder paste for ultrafine-pitch printing, solders with various temperatures for hierarchical soldering, novel flux formulations for flip-chip attach that are compatible with underfill and molding compound, adhesive agents for fluxless soldering, high-reliability solders, and thermal management materials for SiP.

Dr. Shangguan is a strategic advisor to Indium Corporation. In this role, he works on specific trends related to the advanced semiconductor packaging and SMT industries, and applies his significant industry experience to supporting customers. Dr. Shangguan is an IEEE Fellow and IMAPS Fellow, and has served on the boards of directors for several professional organizations and industry associations, including IPC, IEEE EPS, and iNEMI. He also serves as a Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE EPS. He has been honored with some of the industry’s most prestigious awards, including IPC’s President’s Award, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ (SME) Total Excellence in Electronics Manufacturing Award, the Outstanding Sustained Technical Contribution Award from IEEE EPS, and the William D. Ashman Achievement Award from IMAPS, among others. Dr. Shangguan received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Tsinghua University, China, an MBA from San Jose State University, Calif., and a Ph.D. in materials from the University of Oxford, U.K. He has held postdoctoral positions at the University of Cambridge, U.K., and the University of Alabama, and has served as a guest professor at several universities. Dr. Shangguan has published two books and more than 200 scientific papers and technical articles, and has given numerous presentations to share knowledge and expertise with the industry. He is the inventor/co-inventor of 28 U.S. patents and several foreign patents.
