Stick a label on the package with the initial opening time and date & the use by time, then check before using again. Use the disposable indicator cards - if the are attached top the waffle packs they are getting the same exposure. Get your supplie

Hi Ken, You're right - they're not doing anything smart, they are just using a rechargable battery pack. It's not even the latest or most suitable technology for the application (Li-ion has far better temperature characteristics & far high capacity

The leader tape from Sierra works good for us. But if you have to work only with small strips and you can't affort to lose any parts think of moving them into waffle packs. It depends though if your machine has a tray for that. Regards, Cristina

Our sympathies about the ENIG boards. B:) So, you cut the end off the barrier bag, take 200 boards, heat seal the end of the bag and restock it, build the 200 boards and ship them, right?

Mr Jarvis One experience with black pad makes you promise never to use ENIG again. It's nice that you have a supplier that has avoided that problem.

As an OEM, I would like to refer to a shipping standard for completly assembled and tested PCA. These are going to be shipped to me from Mexico and I want to assure they are packed and protected properly. Is there a standard that I can refer to?

For pads such as a d-pack... what is the effect on heat dissipation of leaving the unsoldered portion of the pad exposed metal or covering with solder mask? Is there a percentage of heat dissipation that is inhibited by covering with mask?

We've got away with 90C before, however at 120C they tend to bananna and it isn't easy to remove all of the product then, and some of the legs get damaged (we always received waffle packs then one day tubes arrived & the operator baked as usual....).
