That is what I was looking for. The profiles did not make much sense to me. We are getting alot of cold solder joints or bumpy solder joints.

Questions are: * What is the current plating on the connector that is over the "plating of the leads is Nickel (99.9% purity)"? * What are the temperatures and durations at those temperatures that you read on these connector leads? * What solder allo

Hi Dave, The peak temp on the leads is 216-218 Deg C and duration above MP (179 degC) is 55-60 sec. Alloy(solder paste) used 62 Sn,36 Pb 2Ag (Alpha WS 609 Ty 3 Water eash) This is a SMT connector wth Gulwing leads Gold plating on the PCB is 2-5 micr

since you did not define what visual process you are inspecting with I will ask is this "grainy" appearance being detected with the naked eye only? Are you using magnification? if so, what power? Is this a SMT solder or through hole solder problem?

Thanks Russ! The origianal complaint from the customer was in regards to what appeared as "bumpy" appearance and "holes" in the solder fillet. This problem was originally presented as an appearance issue only. Further investigation by our DPA lab r
