Wavesolder PCBs encounter pinholes

Electronics Forum | Wed Jul 21 13:18:19 EDT 2004 | patrickbruneel

Thomas, The first thing I would suggest you to do is identify the type of problem your dealing with �pinhole� or �blowhole� before you can take the appropriate action to correct the problem. A pinhole is a void or cavity caused by non-wettable part

RC Filter

We're using a RC filter network that we're having solderability problems with. There are 4 RC pairs with 2 ground connections (this is a leadless component). The problem we're having is non-wetting of one of the castellations (9 of the 10 scallops

We have been using this finish almost exclusively for fine pitch boards for about 5 years. Make SURE you use a board house that does the gold plating in-house. There are some potential issues as DaveF stated. The only problem we have encountered is w

All good advise, guys. I somewhat blame myself, that I didn�t inspect the machine. On the other hand, who knows, what machine I would have seen. Here are some e-mail responses, indicating, that this is not the type of business I�m capable of doing my

Thanks for the replies. Interesting white paper. Didn't quite answer my concerns but still a good read. I was actually surprised that to test temperature uniformity across the zone, they attached T/C's to the substrate rather than measure the ai

DEK265 or DEK260 for high mix low volume ???

If you are running FR4 PCBs and not something exotic like Kapton flex circuits, I would go with the Dek 265 any day of the week. You will find that Dek supports the fully automatic printer much better than the semiautomatic printers like the 260, 24

Plating Rework

Common methods to replate components are: * Barrel plating http://www.finishing.com/Library/zemo/barrel.html * Hot solder dipping - MIL-F-14072 M258 Certainly you can do this yourself by dipping the component leads into a solder pot containing lead

GSM Calibration

Is this a single beam (GSM1)or a dual beam machine (GSM2)? If it is a GSM1; how does the pickup works with Head 2 from the front feeder banks? Do you have removeable or fixed feeder banks? If removeable, make it fixed, using screws through the bank

Hi All, I am using COB on my DOUBLE SIDED PCB. lastly we used Eletrolytic Ni / Flash Gold Plating. Our Boards vias Failed the UL corrosion Test. we did some cross-section analysis and found 10.75 �m of Nickel and 0.022 um of Gold and as the Process

We have a potential new customer who has special PCB requirements. I do not know a lot of details at this point, but have several questions. One of their assemblies has within it , a MID, Solid foil layer, completely isolating one side of the PCB f
