We have some circuit boards with some burnishing on the gold fingers from beveling. Does not go through the gold but is cosmetically noticeable. Is this a defect? Is it rejectable or cosmetic? Can someone tell me where the IPC deals with this? I have some photographs
I'm honestly not sure IPC addresses this? the one thing i would ask myself if it were my issue: is the effected area in the critical contact area of the finger/contact? in other words if its low on the finger where the bevel was applied i bet its not in the critical contact area where it will contact its mating connector/contact.
