hi All, recently i have received some parts with the lead turning black, and i then found out the leads are silver plating, is that going to be a problem? or it is simply a cosmetic issue? pls advise ASAP!! thansk a lot!!

I facing dewetting problem on Ag/Pd termination(chip component)during reflow process. The solder wetting is pull to terminal side and exhibits dewetting. Any one ever face the same problem and any solutions for the problem?

Hi, Recently we have encountered solder wicking on components termination (total of 13 pcs of components on one pcb)with Ag/Pd finishes during lead-free reflow soldering. The pcb is LF HASL surface finish and LF solder paste composition is SAC305.We

I am being asked to perform the same evaluation now with a Au/Pd termination varistor. We currently use a Pb/Sn process with an RMA flux. The manufacturer of the device recommends going to a 2% silver paste. What is the intended advantage with 2%

Double check on this, but we have this little voice in our heads telling us that your AgPd termination is intended for conductive adhesive applications. Check with your component supplier. We recall a thread on SMTnet [ http://www.smtnet.com/forums

I don't suggest using Pd/Ag or Ag/Pd terminated components unless you are forced to use them. You often see a line of demarcation that suggests a poorly wetted solder joint. I have had bad experiences with Pd/Ag terminated capacitors. Even when so
