First, most �thermal shock� recipes are not a reliability test. There is no relationship between the failures seem in these tests and in-use application. These tests show you the failures in these tests. That�s it!!! Second, accelerated life test

We conformally coat over NC solder paste. No problems. We're using a platinum catalyzed addition cure silicone. The only concern with this conformal coating is cure inhibition. You must test the coating over the residues to be sure there is no in

OK good if you get really close to the two small solder balls trapped in that greasy waxy residue and carefully turn the balls over you should see that they are flat on the side stuck to the solder resist.

C3 just uses heated DI water that it applies, then pulls back into a disposable cartridge. Machine then applies a 10V charge to the sample & measures leakage current(nA,I think) over time(sec). If the leakage current is high enough/fast enough, you

These residues are extremely water miscible BUT you will probably need the extraction of heated IPA/Water to get the porous resist to release the residue quicker than it would do releasing it naturally in the field. Why dont you try to soak the circu

Yes neither our HPLC IC nor our C3 could detect any concerning levels of ionics. Soaking over a weekend sounds like a good idea, though I may still need to cut the board down to fit our Kapak bag size. And get our silicone coating off the surface. K

Our display suppliers provide displays either with: * Molded plastic cover that we recycle to them * Plastic film like the guys that change your oil put on your wind shield to remind you when to get your oil changed.

From what you are saying................If I hear ya correctly - There is no "Proctective" on the Pads (OSP, HASL....) You will be hard pressed soldering to bare copper. This can not be right. My suggestion- go polyimide with electroptical connecti
