Hi, I have component like QFP and connector which is lead free component. And now the process still is leaded process. Pls advise whether I can use the lead free QFP and connector on leaded process. Appreciate the help.....

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.

HI, I actually have ask the same question a while back. Yes, using lead free component in a leaded process should be no problem at all. May required just a little hotter peak temp. during reflow, to achive optimal solderability.

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

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?

Could you advise what is the min and max peak temperature for this process. Presently, my leaded peak temperature at the range of 215 - 225 deg.C And how do I know that the solderability is at optimal. Appreciate your help......
