Propensity of Immersion Tin surface finish fo whiskers

Electronics Forum | Mon Dec 12 09:39:39 EST 2005 | Amol Kane

thank you devef....My point is this....If you solder all the areas that have Imm Sn on them, there wont be any whisker formation DUE TO THE IMM TIN COATING.....whiskers could still potentially form as a result of COMPONENT FINISHES and effective miti

Paul We don't like to mix metals on press fits. Yano, we do gold on gold or solder on solder, but we don't mix metals [except with imm silver / tin] to avoid electrochemical corrosion. Is that bad information or does AMP think that's not a problem

So, how do you know it's "oxidation"? If the parts didn't solder, why aren't the parts the problem? Do the parts take-on solder? Please describe: * Appearance of the post-solder components. * Scope and extent of the problem. * Appearance of the po

Your fabricator should be able to re-apply the imm tin very easily. Actually, if we had boards like you describe [and we were sure we didn't mess them up], we'd be be making strong implications that our fab would need to make this right. Don't pin

Assuming you are talking about solderable surfaces: People specify various materials to protect the solderability of the pads on the board. Gold, actually, Electroless Nickel - Immersion Gold [ENIG], is popular. * Board fabricators like it because

We use immersion tin boards and ENIG with Sn63Pb37 with no problems. We did have to tweak the profile higher with ImmSn though.

Solderability!!! The CM in question has probably seen too many solder problems with White Tin in the past. We have had the same issues. To save us from spending too much time and money(verifying pure Tin plating thickness, Chemical leaching from th

If you are saying that you have discolored white tin at in-bound inspection, you have bad boards. The boards are fabricated incorrectly. Your fabricator is deficient. That is the GREAT thing about imm coatings. You can look at them and determine

Imersion Tin - does anyone have experience ?

Immersion plating appears like electroless, sorta, but is different chemically. Plating is converting metal ions in solution to metal on the board. Those metal ions are "converted" by adding electrons to them. The source of these electrons defines
