There is no standard minimum / maximum IMC thickness. * There needs to be an IMC * Thinner IMCs are preferred over thicker IMCs

There is a misunderstanding that people think the IMC layer grows the thicker the stronger soldering strength. The IMC layer can be grown and distributed evenly at the interface location will be good enough. Once the IMC layer grows too thick and ove

What are the primary indium (In) / tin (Sn) intermetallic compounds (IMC)? What are the drivers to the formation of In/Sn IMC? Copper / tin IMC are very bittle and, while necessary for proper solder connection formtion, are ment to be minimized. W

Several points are: * There�s quite a bit of background on IMC in the fine SMTnet Archives. I�ll try not to duplicate it. * If you have a smooth and well-formed solder connection using fairly common materials, you assuredly will have IMC. Any evide

How many thicknesses of Intermetallic Compounds(IMC) is good?

Well, there may be a misunderstanding that people think the IMC layer grows the thicker the more strong soldering strength. Actually, the IMC layer can be grown and distributed evenly at the interface between Cu-based, Ni-based and Sn-solder will be

Measuring intermetallic compound

Hi, I am doing a research on the solder ball joint strength of lead free PBGA package. Coming across a dozen of literatures and journals(and the industry itself), I have found out that the method of measuring intermetallic compound(IMC) formation is

Does this forum covers BGA's

Davef, We see increased IMC thickness for electroless Ni and the brittle mode failure occurs much earlier in multiple reflows, exposing IMC layers. Not good for board level reliability.Regards. GV

Hello all, I'm looking for some advice on inter-metallic formation. I have some circuit board finished with Immersion Tin, Immersion Silver and OSP. They have been reflowed with solder past and components,the joints look good. What can I expect fo

Intermetallic compounds [IMC]: * Form during the alloying process of some metals. In soldering these are Sn, Ni, Ag, Cu, Au. * Do not accept solder. * Increase in depth in logarithmic proportion to both time and temperature. [So during the solder
