Yes, you can use lead-free parts in a leaded process. And the other is true as well, no-lead free parts in a leaded process. BUT, you should not use leaded parts through a non-lead wave solder process and of course, your board will not be RoSH.

Hello All. Can the experts in the lead free field guide me to the articles / data confirming that it is OK to use lead free components in the normal "leaded" (Pb) SMT process. And also if any changes in the process would be required to be made. Th

Thanks guys for the suggestions. But, what I am looking for is data, papers, articles to support this process of using lead free parts in leaded process. Again thanks for any help that you can provide.

Chris, To my knowledge the only difference between leaded and lead-free components is the termination plating. What has changed in the component design that makes them resistant to higher temperatures?

I took a Lead Free troubleshooting Class at SMTA in Chicago last September taught by Phil Zarrow. He told us during that seminar that its not a good practice to cross contaminate Leaded and Lead Free components but IF it is necesary than using lead

In passives I dont know if anything changed at all other than the terminal plating. As for Active components there has been much engineering done to allow for the extra heat needed to liquify say SAC305 or other lead free pastes without damage to th

Ed: We agree with you that leadfree parts can be used with leaded paste. We disagree that lead part can be used with leadfree paste. Here is link to a previous discussion here on SMTnet on the topic: http://www.smtnet.com/forums/Index.cfm?CFApp=1&M
