In response: * We know of no "videos about Pb-Cu intermetallic." Intermetallics are usually observed in microsections of solder connections. * We are unaware of "Pb-Cu intermetallic." In most soldering results in a copper-tin intermetallic. * Trainin

Hi my name is Renato and I am from Brazil, and I would like to know where I can find some videos about Pb-Cu intermetallic and rework in SMT.

You're correct. You should expect to see an intermetallic layer in a proper solder connection. Try leaving the component at temperature for a longer period. Growth of intermetallic compounds on Cu surfaces [Klein Wassink]: d = 10^3(exp(-5*10^3/T)t^1

Hello! I am in a little problem, theres a problem in one of the components, is a new component that we are working with the leads are tin coated, and after we solder in the reflow oven, with lead solder, we took them to do a some test and on a cros

Optical microscope or SEM work fine. You say, "I have found out that the method of measuring intermetallic compound(IMC) formation is quite questionable." What's the issue?

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

SEM to determine thickness and spectrum analyses to determine the metals forming the IMC. This will give you everything you would want to know.

Hi, Whenever I'm measuring IMC using the optical microscope, I have to make sure that the images captured are clear. If not, then i will have an issue in differentiating the blurry areas between the IMC and solder(for example). This gives variatio

IS there an IPC standard or equivalent which specifies the maximum thickness of intermetallic compounds (IMC) in a reliable solder joint?

the copper forms intermetallics with tin to get Cu3Sn and Cu6Sn5. thus intermetallics formation consumes Cu and depends upon the cooling rate, faster the cooling rate, lesser the intermetallic formation
