Nov 24, 2004 | Could you tell me what parts you used for the filter etc. This sounds like exactly what I need.

Cap Short

Nov 22, 2004 | Assemblers often assume that the board and component suppliers provide them with clean product. This was not a problem when everyone used water washable fluxes, because the water washing used to clean the flux residues also cleaned the board and components. No-cleaners can not be so blase , because they never clean these components. They need to monitor the ionic contamination on their in-bound material. This becomes urgent where there's ionic material, humidity, and a bias voltage; the three factors that affect dendrites. Water soluble fluxes leave ionic residue detectable by: * ROSE

waterwash of inductors

Nov 19, 2004 | Hi, We used to clean 20 pieces SMT inductors before but no problem with this process. Please confirm what type of inductors is it SMT or hole type. What type of chemical and machine you are currently using? Maybe I can help you out.

Question about solder masking BGA vias...

Sep 18, 2004 | , and tent the bottomside via's. To me, you're just asking for trouble down the road because you'll trap flux residue and all kinds of stuff in the via's that won't be able to be cleaned out well. This is a 676 ball 1.0mm pitch BGA pattern. The board finish is ENIG not HASL. Am I wrong about this? I am going to be using a no-clean paste, but I will be cleaning the boards using Kyzen Aquanox 4512P in a Aqueous Technologies SMT800 batch cleaner. I'm not expecting to be able to clean beneath the BGA at all with this pitch and number of balls. Our customer seems to think that there shouldn't be a problem

Electromigration Testing

Sep 6, 2004 | You're correct GS. Your's is a good cautionary tale for all NC flux users. Unfortunately, it's too easy to assume that boards and components are clean, even if our NC process is flawless.

Looking for small Dishwasher type cleaning

Sep 1, 2004 | Looking for small Dishwasher type cleaning To address the last sentence of the recent posting, Austin American Technology does have experience with board cleaners as described. More recently AAT developed a cleaning system simliar to your description called the AquaBatch. The AquaBatch was developed to offer features not available for SPC, logging critical parameters of the cleaning process. Data available in a spreadsheet or printed format. - Configuration for closed looping the wash and/or the rinse chemistries. - Integral heating of hot DI water for water wash cleaning. - Integral transfer system for remote drainage

Crystalized Flux under BGA

Aug 10, 2004 | residues with your solder paste residues can result in complex residue formulations which may contribute to your current situation. If your HASL flux is RA, and, your solder paste OA, and your cleaning process water only, your cleaning process would likely need a chemistry additive or semi -aqueous chemistry to remove the final resultant residue. Inspecting for clean bare boards, or, cleaning your bare boards may be a preferable approach. Shean Dalton Austin American Technology

PCB Cleaning

Jul 13, 2004 | PCB Cleaning Cleaning RMA fluxes simply requires selecting a washing chemistry (either Solvent, Semi-aqueous or Aqueous) and an appropriate cleaning sytem. Your lot size would be easily handled with a batch system. visit to read about a 5 Step Approach to A successful cleaning process. For semi-aqueous and aqueous mixtures, the DI rinse solution can be recycled which virtually eliminates concerns for rinse water discharge. However, the wash solution will need to be occasionally discharged. Several ways to do

Flux Designations and Composition

Jul 12, 2004 | tetrabenzoate, and bile acids. No Clean flux: Those fluxes are mainly made up of synthetic resins and their residues are non-corrosive and non-sticky. They were designed to be left on the board for applications where such residues are acceptable. However there are many occasions in which their residue must be cleaned to comply with their application, such as High Frequency applications etc. See the following comments: � Flux residue effects on circuit performance? But according to our own experience through a modification for more than 1000 boards, the flux residues remaining after manual rework are very critical. Tens of faulty boards passed all normal & burn-in tests just by cleaning the residues of the No Clean Flux. � No-clean flux residues can be either cleanable or not cleanable. The not cleanable type leave a milky white residue on the solder connection after suitable soaking in water. Your flux

Grainy Solder Joints

Jun 25, 2004 | For what its worth. Even though you are potting the boards. If for whatever reason flux residue (OA) was left on the board prior to potting this flux could migrate and cause embrittlement problems with the solder joint. I would definately inspect for flux migration. Could be there was a cleaning
