How to improve the solder quality of QFN?

Electronics Forum | Fri Jun 24 07:02:35 EDT 2005 | davef

Problem 1: Solder shortage * Stencil aperatures [except the heat slug] should be 1:1 with the board. * Stencil should be 5 thou thick laser cut. * Board should be 1:1 with the component * Print should look good. Problem #2: Bad connection between p

How to calculate the ROI

Our mother company shipped to us a lot of old datecode material and upon running them in the line we experienced non-wetting condition, esplly on the 0402 ( not tombstone ) We have run a dip-and-look test but I guess the method is very subjective as

They always tell you to calculate ROI, when they want to blow you off. Do a net search using - calculate ROI. Links to three pretty good descriptions on this are: http://www.dmreview.com/editorial/dmreview/print_action.cfm?EdID=2487 http://www.eval

How to define solder paste printing height tolerance

Electronics Forum | Mon May 07 16:07:05 EDT 2012 | davef

Start with targets based on the stencil thickness (for height) and stencil thickness times the aperture size (for volume). * Set reasonable upper and lower control limits (+ 25% and –25 % of the targets, for example). * Next, check the printer set-u

can silver plating be used as barrier when soldering brass to copper? silver plate the brass?

Your plater's recommendation should work fine. Your simple copper plate will work, but you'll be stepping into fighting a copper tarnish battle. Silver over the copper is a better choice. I was thinking a silver thickness of a minimum of 3 microns

Best practice to validate the old - more than 5 year old parts

We had a customer who used XRF to determine the thickness of the "tinned" layer of components - sort of what is briefly mentioned in Bob Klenke's SMTA paper - http://www.circuitinsight.com/pdf/Solderability_Testing_Protocols_Component_Re-Tinning_Me
