Back in the 50's, 60's and 70's gold plated boards were all the rage for high reliability. test equipment, milspec etc. Nowadays only edge connectors are gold plated. Immersion plated gold is also used but it doesn't last the distance like gold plate

When discussing this with the customer he said that his vendor recommended a hard gold plating finish on the board due to the BGA. I said "hard gold"??? And he said yes, hard gold. Turns out the boards were plated with hard gold, not ENIG. Thank

Matt: Yes, if the gold was really thick, it could appear like your pictures. In measuring gold plating thickness, we'd want to use xray fluorescence [XRF]. For alternatives, look here: http://www.pfonline.com/articles/pfd0027.html

The gold plating on PCB has a 40% higher resistivity, and it is much more expensive. So gold is not used instead of copper for conductors. Last month I purchased some PCB from Cplfpc and Greatpcb.

1. To protect the nickel and copper under gold plating from oxidization before soldering. Gold plating can extend the PCB self-life and improve the solderability for 2nd re-flow. 2. Provide a good bonding strength. For Chip on Board process that Gol

Points to consider are: * Gold plating too thick [SB LT 8 uinches]. [Obviously, we're talking about actual plating thickness, not the specification.] * Reflow recipe improper [SB 220*C 5-10 sec]. A recipe that works fine for HASL needs to be hotter
