Solder flow thru via on pad

Electronics Forum | Mon Sep 24 18:00:58 EDT 2001 | jagman

Does anyone know the cause(s) of solder flowing through a via to the other side of board during reflow causing solder bumps on opposite side? Is this mainly a design issue or could it be process related? Any help is appreciated.

Assuming you're seeing this during wave solder, the via acts like a heat pipe conducting 450�F [or whatever] air to your solder balls. Check the fine SMTnet Archives for similar threads and perspective on the direction to take.

I'm not seeing this during the wave solder process, rather the REFLOW (convection) process. The board was design with the vias located "in" the land area.

Been there - done that. Makes a mess on that 2nd reflow process- doesn't it!?!?!? This is caused by design. If the open via is located in the land area, it will flow thru the via and cause pumps on the opposite side. You can have your vias filled

Oooo, the solder on the pad and PGA ball is flowing during reflow down the via to the secondary side? Why didn�t you say so?? ;-) Why would you expect that gravity and capillary action wouldn�t force solder to flow down the solder plated via to the

Overprint, solder flow back

Good afternoon, Due to problems with power connector soldering I have to overprint paste on pads for this connector. Stencil thickness is 125um and I cannot make it thicker. Area ratio of chip resistor assemblies limits stencil thickness to 125um. R

Hello, We replated the boards with new Ni and Au and the soldering flow is excellent. There is 100% covarage of the pad even for reduced appertures. Mark

ENig can vary in quality, but I've never seen an ENiG board that's been downright unsolderable. At a CM where I worked, I had to prove a QE wrong. He was flippin' out (*no offense*) about black pad, something commonly seen on ENig boards, so what I

Normally, we try to limit the over print of the paste to the width of the pad on both sides. If you are using 500um pad, then I wouldn't try over a 1500um aperture. Mario Scalzo, CSMTPE, Dartmouth 6 Sigma Green Belt Technical Support Engineer - Ind
