SAC305 is a lead-free alloy that contains 96.5 % tin, 3% silver, and 0.5% copper. This alloy falls under the JEIDA recommendation for lead-free soldering. When used in wave soldering, AIM’s SAC305 bar solder offers far superior fluidity as compared t
Superior Drop Shock Performance AND Thermal Cycling Reliability Current Industry Dilemma The standard set of Pb-free alloys has a dramatic trade-off between thermal cycling and drop testing. Additionally, all these SAC alloys are far inferior to

Reliability Expectations of Highly Dense Electronic Assemblies is commonly validated using Ion Chromatography and Surface Insulation Resistance. Surface Insulation Resistance tests resistance drops on both cleaned and non-cleaned circuit assemblies. It is well documented in the literature that SIR detects ionic residue and the potential of this residue to cause leakage currents in the presence of humidity and bias. Residues under leadless components are hard to inspect for and to ensure flux residue is totally removed. The question many assemblers consider is the risk of residues that may still be present under the body of components.

The functional reliability of electronic circuits determines the overall reliability of the product in which the final products are used. Market forces including more functionality in smaller components, no-clean lead-free solder technologies, competitive forces and automated assembly create process challenges. Cleanliness under the bottom terminations must be maintained in harsh environments. Residues under components can attract moisture and lead to leakage currents and the potential for electrochemical migration (...) The purpose of this research study is to evaluate innovative spray and soak methods for removing low residue flux residues and thoroughly rinsing under Bottom Termination and Leadless Components
