Hello All, I used to hear that PCB with immersion silver finishing, its non component location pads, tend to be discolour (Yellowish) after went through heat cycle, such as reflow oven. However, if the component solderbility on the PCB is OK, can w

As long as the surface is solderable, you should be fine. Silver tarnish a well0-known thing. Make sure, though, there is no sulfur (S) "around". Regards, Vlad

We see this fairly often. It doesn't affect solderability. Our analysis makes us think this coloration is copper. The reason copper appears on the surface may be that heat cycles increase the thinness and porosity of the immersion silver [IAg] coatin

We'd reject the boards because: * Vacuum seal is punctured. * HIC is expired. One of the nice things about immersion coatings is that the fab can rework the coating. You cannot do that with other coatings. Finally, every HIC that we investigated c

I have seen several Imm Ag pad on the assembled board which have a copper colorleaching through the silver plating This happened on the pad which was not deposited with paste during the assembly process. Don't know if it is a problem, but we only h

Imm silver holds-up to multiple thermal cycles very well. The things, we guess, are happening to make imm silver tough to solder after heating and sitting are: * Oxidation of the silver. * Reduction of the co-deposited organic anti-tarnish [used in

there is a good article by AIM solder regarding tin. In a nut shell, if you do not apply flux or heat to tin finish you will never degrade it! I agree with the others that you need to check the thickness of the pure tin layer. We have forbidden ti

hi' i need advise on immersion silver PCb shelf life. 1) what is the shelf life for Immersion silver PCB? 2) iF PCB expire, can we bake the immersion PCB? what temp & duration? 3) How long can we keep the pCB again after rebaking? (with vacuum seal)

We have mixed to negative feelings about Omikron, but I beileve it is due to problems with the board fabricator rather than the process itself. When done properly, our Omikron boards have had very good solderability. However, we have had several
