We are using OSP coated boards and no-clean solder paste. In a few instances, we are seeing increased distortion in an audio circuit. Has anybody seen or heard of surface insulation resistance (SIR) decreasing after reflow on OSP boards? Is it possib

You have mostly set in your mind before purchasing PCB i.e. PCB is an acronym for the printed circuit board. Last month I purchased PCB from Great PCB.

Splitting hairs is putting it mildly. I�m just trying to rule out all variables. It doesn�t appear that we have an SIR problem, but since the newest variable is OSP (blame the new guy for all the problems), I have to consider it. I�ve seen this befo

First, we expect voiding in imm silver to be similar to ENIG. We expect more voiding in OSP than other common solderability protection. Second, choosing a solder paste, which does not contain resins and activators that decompose at higher temperatu

Splitting hairs, I expect SIR of all solderability protection, including OSP, to decrease after reflow. What�s more, I expect the SIR of all solderability protection to pretty much decrease over time. The �comb pattern� test specimens meet requirem

Via filling methods are: * Tenting * Plugging * Capping * Flooding Tented Via. A via covered with dry film soldermask; the via is not filled. When tenting from both sides there may be issues with trapped air that expands during mass soldering. Plug

Graham, Please describe the term OA? I have never heard of that acronym. Thanks, Brian E. Steelglove

Be careful if you use Ni/Au. The "black pad" phenomenum can be crippling. We moved from Ni/Au to OSP because of it. I also don't want to return to the lack of flatness of HASL.
