Immersion gold and BGAs

Electronics Forum | Fri Aug 26 09:57:21 EDT 2005 | russ

The Immersion gold is not a problem with BGAs specifically but "black pad" which can be present anywhere. The unfortunate thing with BGAs is you cannot see it. Personally I hate white tin. It is okay for single sided boards running no-clean, but c

Do you bond with Al or gold wire? What happens if the Ni is over 150 microinches? Thickness of nickel is one those things that we have not been consistent with. The industry seems to pretty much universally call for 100-200 microinches. Our old board

For soldered areas, we like to keep gold thickness substantially below the maximum you propose. Search the fine SMTnet Archives for our discussions on the topic of acceptable levels of gold with solder connections. Let�s fix this �no one seems be s

Thanks Chris. As I was writing my last message our mailperson dropped off the latest issue of Circuit Assembly. It has an article on mixing SMT and COB on the same board. The author recommends as a compromise 10-20 micro inches of gold over 70-100 of

Gold and Palladium Plating

ENEPIG or Imm Pd? Concerns about palladium as a solderability protection are: * Palladium is more difficult to process in fab than gold * Palladium solder alloys can be brittle, similar to gold, without proper soldering process and/or specification/

COB and Plating

Hi All, I am using COB on my DOUBLE SIDED PCB. lastly we used Eletrolytic Ni / Flash Gold Plating. Our Boards vias Failed the UL corrosion Test. we did some cross-section analysis and found 10.75 �m of Nickel and 0.022 um of Gold and as the Process

J Rose at EMPF says: The introduction of no-clean solder fluxes in electronics manufacturing has given rise to greater levels of solder balling simply because the opportunity to remove them in the wash process does not exist. They are typically cause

Has anyone had experience with placing BGA on gold plated boards. I thought I read a while ago there was a problem with embrittlment causing cracked joints. If anyone has experience with this your feedback would be great. Mike Mike, You
