Next Best Thing to a Close Shave: Mitigating the Risks of Tin Whiskers

If you've been in electronics for any length of time, the phenomenon of tin whiskers is something you've likely heard discussed (maybe in scared whispered tones). Tin whiskers certainly aren't a new problem. In fact, some of the first published reports of the occurrence date back to the 1940's and 1950's. But, over half a century later, we're still talking about it.

Tin Whisker Risk Management by Conformal Coating

The objective of this study is to evaluate conformal coatings for mitigation of tin whisker growth. The conformal coatings chosen for the experiment are acrylic, polyurethane and parylene. Also included in this paper are tin whisker inspection results of tin-plated braiding and wire that was exposed to an environment of 50°C with 50% relative humidity for over five years.

Mitigation of Pure Tin Risk by Tin-Lead SMT Reflow- Results of an Industry Round-Robin

The risk associated with whisker growth from pure tin solderable terminations is fully mitigated when all of the pure tin is dissolved into tin-lead solder during SMT reflow. In order to take full advantage of this phenomenon, it is necessary to understand the conditions under which such coverage can be assured. A round robin study has been performed by IPC Task group ...

Conformal Coating over No Clean Flux Residues

As the proliferation of modern day electronics continues to drive miniaturization and functionality, electronic designers/assemblers face the issue of environmental exposure and uncommon applications never previously contemplated. This reality, coupled with the goal of reducing the environmental and health implications of the production and disposal of these devices, has ...

Anyone experianced with Fuji PCMCIA Flash Memory cards -- Hello all, I have a couple of old FUJI CP-6 SMT placement machines that are operating with very old PCMCIA Flash Memory cards. I would like to insure that I have back-ups should the memory cards fail. I assume that I would need a support USB reader/writer and compatable cards. Does anyone have experiance in working with these old cards that they could share with me please? Thank you, Ron
