We are enclosing our SMT room and will control the Humidity and Temperature of the room. Is there a standard for humidity and temperature for a SMT room and if so what is it. What is protocol if it goes out of tolerance? Do we stop production? Is

I have a Polyimide board that is showing signs of de-lamination. I was wondering what pre-bake times and temperatures other people would recomend for new boards as well for boards that have been on the shelf for 8 months.

we are using polyimide boards 6 inches x 7 inches, 2.5mm thick, 12 to 14 layers, for aerospace industries. I am using a long bake of 12 hours at 70'C prior to manufacturing or exposure to elevated reflow and wave soldering temperature. If schedule i

Normally, you should not have to bake boards that are properly packaged and stored. Since you are seeing problems, baking makes sense. Consider 125C for 4 to 6 hours. Additionally, look here for more, while waiting for others: http://www.smtnet.

OA pastes are more hydroscopic than NC pastes. Hydroscopic. The capacity of a material to absorb and retain moisture from the ambient air. Sometimes this is compounded if you remove paste from the frig and let it warm to room temperature, because

Hi All, Would just like to course through this concern on a product that we are contracted to assemble. It is mainly used for an automatic hand sanitizer dispensing product. By design there is a restrictive value of current that it needs to dissipat
