The buyers in our company like to change the PCB finishing because of reducing costs. The proposed change is going from Ni/Au to HASL lead free, I know that in the beginning of the lead free period there where a lot of problems to use the HASL especi

Hi Syed, I'm a PCB engineer from China. First:Immersion gold surface finish is the best for PCBs. Second:HASL(Lead-Free HASL) Then:HAL(with lead) The cheapest surface finish is OSP(After 15 days will be oxidized)

Hi Jay, Concerning you PCB, what TG do you expect to use for your lead free process? On my side I have a problem. I order PCB from Canada and from China. My PCB vendor in china is producing a lot of OSP and ENIG PCB, no HASL lead free and in Cana

1 um". Some PCB manufacturer is telling me that this specification is not feasible in production. I would know if this position is due to the equipment (or process control) they have, or if in effect is not possible to satisfy my requests.

Most PCB manufacturers should be able to fall between 1.25um-5.00um for Pb-Free HASL. I doubt you will get anyone to agree to anything higher. If you are going to require an average thickness, make sure you also state "No Copper exposure allowed".

Instead of a minimum thickness, we require no exposed copper or SnCu intermetallic. We've been having a lot of trouble lately with suppliers of SN100 HASL boards giving us pads with very irregular solder deposits with areas of exposed intermetallic.

When you say Fine Pitch is this .5mm or is it smaller? I wonder what problems they experienced with HASL, the only problem I recall hearing was the surface was not flat. When applying paste with a stencil I can not see how the flatness is an issue.

Hello Piter, I don't know which type of HASL we will be using, we decided to do some test and I have to decide together with two other people which material we will try. Searching on the internet i discovered that it's not so easy to find a good sol
