The main advantage if ENIG over HASL is that ENIG is flat and HASL generally is not. The main disadvanages to ENIG over HASL are: * Cost of ENIG is 1.5 - 2X higher than HASL * Selflife is less than HASL * You solder to nickel, rather than copper * E

Hi all, What should the typical gold thickness be on ENIG boards ? aj...

Gold thickness

Hi Aj, Recommended Immersion gold thickness would be 3-5 Micro inches over 140 -200 micro inches of Nickel. Thicker Immersion gold than 5 micro inches can cause solder joint embrittlement. Gold readily dissolves in molten solder and will be present

Hi Experts, Pls help advise what is the expected range of PCB gold thickness over Ni (for ENIG/Electrolytic fabrication processes)? any referrence standards set by the IPC?

J-STD-001C requires removal of gold from (through-hole) component leads when the thickness of the gold layer is above 2.5 microns to prevent problems with embrittlement. The thickness of gold on an ENIG board typically is around 0.05 micron, resultin

Soldermask color relating to thickness

Electronics Forum | Fri Nov 22 05:04:07 EST 2019 | SMTA-Matthew

We have some circuit boards where the solder mask seems clear instead of green on top of some of the tented via pads. No gold deposited during the ENiG process and no solder sticks to it but why is it clear and does it have any correlation to the thi

ENIG Thickness for Flex

We had an issue with the finish, PCB manufacturer is telling that they had a problem with the Nickel rework, which resulted in 20% fall out. Please help me by providing the ENIG thickness for Flex boards, is it same as rigid boards as per IPC 4552. I

I would be afraid of this board supplier, ENIG is self limiting. Russ

ENIG Thickness for Flex

Thank you! I am looking into this, but main idea is to use rigid board in place of flex.

Tell your fab that you'd like your ENIG according to IPC-4552. Just so that you know, IPC-4552 ENIG specification: * Ni thickness: 3 - 6 microns [120 - 240 microinches]. * Au thickness: 0.075 - 0.125 microns [3 - 5 microinches]. * Recommended spec
