I'm having shorts appear on my QFN packages between pins, usually only after a week or so of power-on operation. The shorts are 1K and slowly down to hard shorts over time. Typically a defective part will have failures on multiple pins. I tried havi

I don't think anyone can give you an answer until you've had some failure analysis done. Silver migration? Dendritic growth? Tin whiskers? Lots of possibilities, but you won't know without failure analysis.

I would imagine it is lead free HASL finish board from the sounds of it am I right. Cheers Greg

I have to correct something from my previous post (before someone else corrects me). You can grow dendrites from any conductive surface (Cu, Ni etc.) but the final stage would be lower SIR. In my experience other metals except for tin do not lead to

It seems familiar, but nothing that I've actually experienced. I've read some articles about tin-whiskering in lead-free solder. I think NASA has some pretty good analysis (or, at least they did a couple of years ago). The summary is that without

From your description of the problem first reduced SIR to dead short is exactly what happens with dendrite growth. What is needed to form them is low bias voltage (10 volt range is ideal with low current), a surface, 2 conductors (containing tin), io

Yes, We've already experienced this same problem. 1) What kind of flux are you using? No Clean? Rosin? OA? 2) If it's OA, What kind of water wash do you do? Do you use DI water? How Hot? Who's machine? What are the pressures? 3) Have you performed a

Anyone facing QFN package crack problem ?

Anyone can share experience on package crack for QFN package. This package is so sensitive to any external force. Any good recomendation on desoldering / rework procedure.
