We experienced a random no contact at ATE on our board. The board I'm building consist of 9 BGAs, all of them are OK except for one, intermittently the tester will prompt no-contact message. It's happened on a diff. I/O, but only happened on that pa

Manual Stencil Alignment

Dear Herb Intoduce a decent light source (halogen desk lamp or similar)when aligning. Then concentrate on the refection as you adjust in the x & y rather than trying to see edges of pads as they pass the appetures. Start with rapid sweeps to get

Dr. Lee, For lead-free wave soldering, we are recommended to use SnCu0.7, why not 0.8 or more ?? Since SnCu0.7 has eutectic melting point at 227 deg C, does it mean with more Cu or less Cu, the melting point will be higher ?? Also, in lead solderin

Dennis, Not sure why your so secrative about what machine but I guess it doesn't matter. When you start placing 0402 & 0603 packages the difference between height and width and length gets lost in tolerance. This allows the machine to pass parts t

A really nifty nest can be made by making an RTV mold of the first side of your assembly. Assuming all are identical within some small tolerance, the resulting mold holds the board very securely and distributes the loading. Cover the components with

We're going to 5 mil foil from 6 mil, with a 10 mil aperture, radiused corners. Supposedly going to traps. from right angles, but who knows? We've got temp. controlled at ~73F, but no RH control. We are going to also try out a more humidity toleran

I'm looking for some good articles on reflowing of double sided SMT boards. I'd like to come up with a process for low volume prototyping, but need to understand the do's and don'ts. Hello, you can get some insight by typing in double sided boa

Is it possible to place 0402 components with a Fuji CP2? How about a CP4? What are the suggestions for 0402 machine placement? Any help would be appreciated. Never had a CP2. Had limited success on CP4's. Do better with 6's and

Solder Balls on end of long pins

I am wave soldering a single sided through hole PCB array with (6) .040" round diameter pins that sit .5" off the PCB, and .080" apart. The problem being experienced is that solderballs are appearing on the end of the pins. I have tried decreasing
