solder wire

Electronics Forum | Mon Oct 01 03:46:57 EDT 2001 | wbu

Have never heard of solderballs during rework using solder wire. Noticed the tendency to have little balls of flux with too hot iron and lots of solder used for shields or massive cables to be connected. Seems to me a question of believe if it does

black and grey pad

Electronics Forum | Sat Oct 06 05:33:47 EDT 2001 | spchua

I had recently encounter the "black and grey" pads problems for the BGA pad after the convection re-flow. The pads shows in in "black and grey" color and a litter solder in it, and it happen in ramdom, when applied heat and solder on the "black and g

Reparing 0201 components on PCB-boards

A real small soldering iron, a real steady hand, a qualified solderer. Soldering skill set is key. Iwould sugest a Micro scope. Sonora Mfg (I am sure there are others)has an infinate scope that you can solder under. aside from that....skill set.

gold connectors

Electronics Forum | Wed May 29 19:17:17 EDT 2002 | russ

We are starting to see a large increase in the use of through board gold plated connectors that require hand soldering with the limitation of .o6" encroachment up the pin. What is the best way to accomplish this? we currently scrap about 5-10% of t

Solder Tip Shroud

Electronics Forum | Tue Sep 17 12:32:36 EDT 2002 | ksfacinelli

I have an assembly that requires hand solder a part that is in very close proximity to a plastic housed PCI connector. I am using a Metcal iron and am interested if anyone has developed a shroud that will allow soldering in a tight cavity but not me

Solder Tip Shroud

Electronics Forum | Tue Sep 17 13:05:05 EDT 2002 | stepheno

On the Iron shaft? Why not on the connector to be protected. Actually now that I think back, I seem to remember seeing Kapton tape used on a part in a similar situation, but that I believe was a rework situation. Putting Kapton tape on every assembly

Frequency of Soldering Stations Calibration

Electronics Forum | Fri Jan 02 05:40:20 EST 2004 | p.LAKSHMANAN

cALIBRATION OF SOLDERING IRON DEPENDS ON THE USAGE AND AGAIN DEPENDS ON THE PERFORMANCE.NORMALLY U CAN FIX THE CALIBRATION INTERVAL AS 3 MONTHS (OR) 6 MONTHS AND ANALYSE IF THERE IS ANY SUBSTANTIAL DRIFT IN THE READINGS(BETWEEN ACTUAL AND DISPLAYED).

Putting a center board support on lead free wave

Sn corrosion effects were studied for stainless steels, coated stainless steels, titanium, cast iron, and other materials. This study can be found in the SMT Library under "Equipment Impacts of Lead-Free Soldering" Electrovert uses a Melonite coating

Component non wetting

Electronics Forum | Mon Apr 26 17:12:14 EDT 2004 | babe

Take a solder iron with some wire solder and attempt to tin the leads of the component. Look under magnifier or microscope. Did they wet? If not try fluxing them with liquid flux and then soldering again. Did they wet? If they did not then you may wa
