Solder Mask On Gold

Frank Boyko


Solder Mask On Gold | 28 May, 1999

We now put soldermask on copper and then immersion nickel/gold plate our fine line boards. One of our vendors says this causes skipped plating in small via holes and wants to nickel/gold plate the whole board, including via holes, and then apply solder mask.

Has anyone any experience with this approach?
