Silver Sulphide Contamination of Resistors

Electronics Forum | Fri Feb 23 10:24:24 EST 2001 | johnthor

We still build a legacy product with a primitive backplane using silver plated fork terminals for outside world connections. After some 20 years of no problems the fork terminals on raw stock PCBs were black and almost unsolderable. Because of the

Thanks for your feedback. All the 0603 chips have the round solder lands but the 0805 chips and larger are rectangular. After speaking with the designer on it he said they chose round lands for the 0603 chips to get higher density of the circuit trac

No, the specific question is on the "Soldering & Rework" disk. Yours is a good approach to updates. [No lakeside baronal mansion, eh???] I have sent a list of unusual questions to Evelyn that includes the above example. It's difficult to document
