Effect of Soldering Parameters on Reaction Kinetics and Phase Transformations of SAC 305 Solder

Effect of Soldering Parameters on Reaction Kinetics and Phase Transformations of SAC 305 Solder

First and second layer intermetallicsAs technology becomes increasingly reliant on electronics, understanding the reliability of lead-free solder also becomes increasingly important. This research project focused on phase transformation kinetics with the lead-free solder SAC 305.

Today in the electronics industry, SAC 305 is the most widely used solder, making it a high priority to understand its long-term stability and performance in a variety of service conditions. Recent evidence has shifted the focus from thermal aging to reflow temperature and time above liquidus values during initial solder melting.
