Use IPC-4552 for your ENIG thickness. Typically, ENIG has nickel deposit with medium [7-9 percent by weight] phosphorus content. That's what fabs do on rigid boards. On a flex with medium-P and IPC-4552 specified ENIG, you could see brittleness and

I asked our lab about this and received this response: "Typically 7 - 9wt% phosphorus is used. Higher concentrations (10 - 12 wt% phosphorus) reportedly help prevent Ni-P corrosion during the IG processing step, but they are also reportedly more dif

Hi after an enviromental test 85C/85RH, for 3 months (powered), of an electronic assembly with edge finger tabs ENIG finished (nickel 5micron, gold 0.02micron), the nickel disappears completely under the gold (due to corrosion, I think). Does anyone

Below is the long explanation. This defect is most commonly found with BGA components, but can arrise with all components. I see it happening more now with lead free boards that are being assembled with a no clean flux. Best short term remedy is t
