What could be possible resons for " Plating Crack on Barrel (tented via)" This tented via is in proximity to parts being hand soldered. The crack in barrel was detected on failure analysis - micro-section of via where barrel is having crack ( circul

Hi Steve ... There are arguments between fabricators and thermal relievers about adding non-connected copper tabs to barrels in hopes of providing thermal relief, but that's not what you're talking about, I believe. I don't foresee an issue moving t

It's not the first thing we think of in looking at your picture. First off, the lack of copper in the region of the red oval makes us think of a plating defect. We don't expect that moisture out-gassing through the barrel wall to show-up on opposite

If it was ROHS, I would say that the pads are definitely dissolved away. And it sounds like that is the case here. Your best bet is if it is class 2 and the barrels are at least 50% then push for them to be accepted. If you are trying for more barr

Well, we got the baking part right at least. I would think that would help to rule out the barrel cracks allowing moisture escape. Plating too thin makes sense to me. In any case, do you think barrel cracking would be observable on a bare PCB?

Hi Everyone, I want to understand what is the copper thickness to be maintained in PTH Barrel hole. Is this same as Fab recommendation of surface finished copper thickness like 25/35/70 microns..??? Is there any specific IPC standards available to un

Maybe increased barrel fill? Raising pot temps slightly seems to increase barrel fill at selective solder, something we battle with.
