Solderability Benchmarking, Failures & Production Testing Methods

July 6 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

| £65 Book a place for this online webinar

All webinar times shown are UK time – to check your local time in your countries 

The webinar provides an introduction and a better understanding of the soldering process and the effect of poor solderability on modern manufacture. Surface mount components can be a problem area, as are some of the surface finishes used on printed circuit boards. The online session aims to provide a basic understanding of solderability failure including ageing, test methods, both theoretical and practical, for circuit boards and components. It also shows how to test BGAs, LGA, CSP, PoP and flip chip packages on the shop floor in 10min

The webinar gives practical hands-on experience of solderability testing of different solder finishes and assessment of results. Using the instructor’s unique video material many process faults will be demonstrated. In process testing non laboratory testing is illustrated as well as the correlation with real process conditions

After the webinar there is a Q&A session which provides ample time for all delegate questions to be answered. However, if a delegate has a process example they would like covered in the webinar, it will need to be provided in advance of the session

Webinar Content:

What is solderability ?
Component and printed board storage life
Storage conditions for longer life
Artificial ageing tests and impact on yields
International specifications and test methods
Cost of Gold, Copper, Palladium, Silver, tin etc
Protective coatings and effects of soldering operations
Solderability reflow wetting patterns
Solderability tests:

Dip and inspect, wetting balance, rotary dip test
Simple production reflow test methods and criteria
Wetting balance measurements

The webinar will run for between 60-90min with question and answer session. The webinars are limited to 100 delegates/companies. A copy of each of the slides presented will be provided after the webinar
