Comments are: * Use an eraser if the surface of Au is not clean, but make sure the eraser has no/low ionics (such as sulfur that is a common additive for rubber). * If the plating surface required eraser to remove the top surface, the plasma normally

The steadfast rule of thumb is: In order to get reliable reflow, you need to be at or higher than [liquidus + 20�C] for about 5 to 10 seconds, rather than those old "60 seconds above 183�C" guideline. This provides for setting your peak based on the

Greetings, I am pretty new to SMT production, and have learned much from this forum. I am getting ready to build a CCA with many 0402 parts that are really close together. I consider these fine pitch. The board also has two QFPS, so my stencil design
