Anyone experience using SnPb wire to gold plated ICs? I have tried to solder the SnPb wire to the gold plated ICs lead, but the surface finishing is dull. Can anyone explain that to me? Why it is not shinny surface? Any recommendation?

Many component manufacturers are moving to Pb free terminations. I've been doing a literature study of Pb free processing and have found several articles that indicate Pb-free paste with Sn/Pb terminations leads to early fatigue failures. Does anyo

My soak at 150C - 180C for approx. 85sec to 100sec. I believe this is sufficient. I can't change my paste because customer wants to use SnPb paste with SAC solder balls. They claimed that they have sucessful result with other CM. I need to know if

Thank you for the reply. We do build SnPb assemblies as well as Pb-Free. I am aware of the Silver paste. However, what impact is there with reflowing SnPb components with a max temp of say 220C when using the higher Pb-Free temps?

We use SNPb for such applications (PCBA for aircraft). We tried SAC305 but recieve no good quality, so now only SNPb. If you will find good solution - please write. Because now we have some problems with BGA - no SNPb balls. And need to reball (addit

If we procure parts with a Sn/Ag termination, can we still use standard Sn/Pb solder pastes and the current reflow and wave processes?

I have a component manufacturer that is using Sn/Ag/Cu plating on chip caps and resistors. Does anyone have any information on compatability with Sn/Pb paste. Are any changes in profile required? Is the reliability of the solder joint at risk? Tony

OK. Thanks!! Lastly, is it the nature of the chemistry that Sn/Pb solder mixed with Pb-free alloy will be getting voids? If so, what's the physic/chemistry behind it?

Many high rel assemblers reball their LF BGA with SnPb balls. In other less demanding environments, SnPb paste with LF BGA produces acceptable reliability.

We use SnPb paste and bar with leaded and non-leaded component finishes. The predominant finish on components we use is Tin, there are a few NiPdAu. We've had no problems with the component finishes used in the SnPb process.
