See, I didn�t bite on you zinc diffusion trick that you tried to pull last week. Understand, in this response, I am NOT trying to bust you. I�m trying to determine what you are looking to understand. [Some times I get so locked into talking a cert

Ron, have a look at http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/dsma/cgmphome.html It would be a nightmare, if your plant is not structured to support it. It's a huge pain in the fanny even when you (alledgedly) are. I'm not sure what you're pursuing, but if you're c

R1: Contacting Altera to find out if the BGA pads are gold. D1: Bet money the pads were ENIG. R2: Contacting Altera to find out if they use abrasives. D2: If abrasives were the problem, you�d see it in many pads, especially those close to the probl

I think OA flux left on the pot would quickly looses its activity and become part of the dross waste stream, and smoke stream for that matter. Also, if your wave is setup properly your selective pallets will scour (push) the top of the lambda wav
