Cookson Electronics and Practical Components� Introduce Lead-Free Process Capability Program

Jun 24, 2004

Practical Components� and Cookson Electronics have teamed up to offer a new Lead-Free Process Capability Program. This program consists of lead-free components and test boards from Practical Components� combined with Cookson Electronics� analytical evaluation and process capability validation services to the IPC and J-STD requirements.

The CE Analytics/Practical Components� Test Kit consists of: PCB test boards with Polyclad� FR-370HR laminate, various lead-free compatible pad finishes (ENTEK� PLUS� CU-106A, ENTEK� PLUS� CU-106A-HT and Alpha-LEVEL� Immersion Silver), industry standard lead-free dummy components (BGA, MLF, QFP, LQFP, SOIC, TSOP, SOT, and passives), ALPHA� OM-338 lead-free solder paste and ALPHA� Telecore + cored wire, and process application guidelines.

Does your Lead-free process meet industry standards? This program makes your transition to Lead-Free smooth by giving you a complete solution. The CE Analytics/ Practical Components� program is unique in that it not only offers you the materials and analysis but also the validation of your Lead-Free process before you go into production.

The CE Analytics laboratory services include:

1. Lead-Free Process Capability Validation comprised of:

�Macro and microscopic inspection and analysis of processed assemblies compared to IPC and J-STD requirements.

�Validation Report with recommendations for process optimization if applicable.

�CE Analytics Lead-Free Process Capability Validation Certificate.

2. Voiding Analysis

3. Macroscopic Examination of Processed Assemblies (non-destructive)

4. Microscopic Examination of Solder Connection Integrity.

Practical Lead-Free dummy components are exact mechanical equivalents of live components used only when the physical properties of the components are required. These components can cost as much as 80% less than live components making the ideal for testing of solder processes, machine setup and other process evaluations.

Practical Components� are headquartered in Los Alamitos California with distributors worldwide. Cookson Electronics is a global leader in the electronics manufacturing industry and is a division of Cookson Group plc which employees over 6,000 people. Cookson Electronics is headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island.
