Palladium finish and solder balls

You're correct that the Ni/Pd termination seems to have something to do with you solder balling. It could be related to the interaction between your paste and the Pd. I assume these are really 'fines' rather than 'balls'. Things that come to mind a

Hello! We want to try Lead Free paste Sn42/Bi58. Can we use this paste with Lead fihish such as HASL. I am worry about low melting temperature of 138C.

Hi Popov, can you tell us the reason for the use of Sn-Bi ?

Thanks for your reply. As already said by Anvil1021, is not a good idea to mix Lead and Bismuth! Stay away from Bismuth if you have even the slightest traces of Lead on yours PCB, stencil, squeegee, spatula, blade, cleaning paper or cleaning cloths,

Thanks Dave , my question is about Spopov want to try "Lead Free" SnBi (but uses it on Leaded finishes), but is worry about its low melting point (at this point, no longer 138 degrees as he wrote, but rather in an unknown and unpredictable range bet

Ryan, in some cases we use 2 pastes with different melting temperature (LF SAC and PbSn)for complex boards with components on two sides. And we want to try to replace LF SAC with low melting paste.

Sure you can use it it with leaded HASL. Recognize that ... * Your Sn42/Bi58 will no linger be Sn42/Bi58 * Your leaded HASL will no longer be the same leaded HASL that walked in the door to your plant * Lead from HASL coatings can diffuse through the

So how does this (lead free paste Sn42/Bi58) solder compare with the Sn-Ag-Cu (Tin-Silver-Copper) combination which does not flow as well (in the oven), needs higher oven temperature, (that can be adjusted by reducing the oven chain speed) and cost m

Ryan ... "As for bismuth-based lead-free alloys, a lower melting temperature than that of tin-lead is offered together with a cost similar to that of tin [in the area of $3/lb]. Unfortunately, bismuth in soldering alloys tends to create embrittlemen

We have experience with this alloy, but with enig and we did start with PB HASL, none of our PCBs would of course pass thermal cycling at normal temperatures with the HASL so we went to ENIG. we could thermal cycle at 100-115C with no issues. We foun
