Solder Paste and fine pitch components

Electronics Forum | Thu Sep 19 11:14:45 EDT 2002 | Jim M.

We had lots of problems with bridging on 15.8mm pitch, QFP17-160 at the start.The board was .032 thick, double sided-six boards to a panel. Here is the problems (not neccessarily in the biggest to little but as i remember them) and solutions that he

Is there a medical rating and standards for PCB components

What do you want to be certified? So, do you have a specification control drawing for each component that defines your expected performance capabilities for use by your buyer in acquiring these parts? If there is a reason to fabricate parts to your

Tin Whisker Testing

Hi, I have a very basic question for tin whisker testing. Do I thermal cycle/age the Components only or solder them to a ckt board and then thermal cycle/age the PCB assembly??

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

You proved that the standard solderability test of components may be effective for assessing aged components. Curious Minds Can you get the authorization to use a more aggressive flux? Will that flux solve the problem? What's it going to cost to qu

Given that you're seeing it on nearly every part, we tend to lean towards Dave's explanation. We wouldn't expect outgassing from the pad to be an issue (at least, we've never heard of it before, which doesn't, necessarily, eliminate it as a potentia

Can anyone please help me out. I am having solderability issues on a 208 pin QFP. I believe that it may be due to the age of the component. The date code states week 50 of 2003 which is not all that far off 5 years. The component was vacuum sealed at

Electrically testing components is an age-old practice of the past. True "world class manufacturers" like to minimize, or even eliminate incoming inspection of ANYTHING - the theory being....a world class manufacturer should have such awesome relati

Interesting situation. Everything [ie, intermetallic compounds, solderability, etc] is speculative without knowing more about the materials of: * Leads. * Solderability protection. ... because suppliers use a fairly wide of materials. Your suppl

Micheal: Correct me if I am mistaken, but I think you have stumbled onto the age old battle between metric and imperial representations of component packaging. I have to deal with this every day as my machines are metric and the designers use imperia
