AIM to Highlight REL61 and REL22 at SMTA West Penn Expo

Reading time ( words)

AIM Solder announces their participation at the SMTA West Penn Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place March 28th, 2018 at the DoubleTree Monroeville Hotel in Monroeville, Pennsylvania. AIM will highlight their revolutionary REL61 and award-winning REL22 lead-free alloys along with their full line of solder assembly materials.

REL61 was developed to provide PCB assemblers and designers with an enhanced reliability, cost-effective replacement for SAC305 and other low/no silver alloys. REL61 outperforms all common lead-free alloys in durability, wetting performance, thermal cycling performance, and BTC void performance.  Available in paste, wire and bar solder formats, REL61 can be incorporated into all phases of PCB assembly. 

AIM will also highlight its full line of advanced solder materials, including its solder paste, liquid flux solder alloys, and its newly developed and award-winning REL22 solder alloy for extremely harsh environments. To discover all of AIM’s products and services, visit the company at the SMTA West Penn Expo & Tech Forum for more information.

Reliability of ENEPIG by Sequential Thermal Cycling and Aging

11/06/2017 | Reza Ghaffarian, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology
Electroless nickel/electroless palladium/immersion gold (ENEPIG) surface finish for PCBs has now become a key surface finish that is used for both tin-lead and lead-free solder assemblies. This article presents the reliability of LGA component packages with 1156 pads assembled with tin-lead solder onto PCBs with an ENEPIG finish and then subjected to thermal cycling and then isothermal aging.

The Root Causes & Solutions for Warped PC Boards

09/27/2017 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
There are two primary types of causes of board warping: process related at the fab or assembly shop, and layout related issues. If it's warped before assembly, it's between fab and layout. If it's flat before assembly and warped after, it's most likely between layout and assembly. That said, sometimes a fab problem won't show up until a pass through the reflow oven at your assembly partner.

X-Ray Inspection of Lead and Lead-Free Solder Joints

07/31/2017 | Glen Thomas, Ph.D., and Bill Cardoso, Ph.D., Creative Electron Inc.
As aerospace companies consider the shift to lead-free solder alloys and glues, concerns have been raised about whether their current X-ray inspection and quality-control procedures will still be valid. With lead solder, joints are easily interpreted by the operator or the system imaging software because lead provides excellent image contrasts due to relatively high X-ray absorption compared to that of PCB and component materials. Will this hold true as they shift to lead-free solder compounds?
