Electronics Forum | Thu Dec 18 23:44:53 EST 2003 | Dean

...don't expect high yields with hasl on that device. Yeah, you an do it. But not reliably. Also, factor in board warp, bump tolerance AND HASL variation....recipe for disaster. can your process toleate a selective gold on the one device? How ab

Supplier Rating PPM/DPMO

Electronics Forum | Wed Jan 28 10:14:03 EST 2004 | danielinsa

All � I am trying to change my rating method for end item assemblies provided by my CM. I am currently using a simple yield method based on total PCBA�s received vs PCBA�s rejected. I have considered PPM but am leery due to the high mix rate and fluc

Dispensing Paste for 0201-0402 uBGA devices?

Quick question for you Netters out there: Anyone out there dispense solder paste (via automated dispenser) for 0402, 0201 and/or uBGA's? If so, success yields, equipment used, and any technical info would be appreciated. This is for a low volume app

Inspection criteria on PIH parts

Electronics Forum | Wed Aug 04 17:16:13 EDT 2004 | Richard

Can anyone comment on inspection criteria for PIH applications. I'm of the opinion that the inspection criteria used for wave soldered joints should be used for PIH. Some colleagues believe that a bottom side fillet is not necessary since the solde

Hi, We had quite a bit of problems when we allowed popcorn onto the shop floor, so we changed to M&M's but the problems persisted. We changed our operator feeding process over to KFC, and ever since there has been a dramatic improvement in productio

0.5 mm pitch BGA

Electronics Forum | Mon Feb 28 06:06:04 EST 2005 | Guest

I'm looking for recommendations on pad and stencil design for products with 0.5 mm pitch BGA's. The latest info that I found in the archives of this forum dated more than a year ago. It didn't give me much confidence that assembly of such components

Double Sided Reflow

Electronics Forum | Thu Mar 17 09:30:59 EST 2005 | John S

We are moving into using fine pitch components in a double sided reflow process. In one of our test runs, we noted that some of the QFP's would move while reflowed on the bottom on the second pass and become defective. Is this being done widely wit
