Reading time ( words)

There are many pros and cons to cleaning your PCB assemblies. Cleaning can be an additional capital expenditure and, with miniaturized devices and components, has become quite difficult to accomplish given the low-standoff heights and component densities in boards. On the other hand, cleaning ensures quality and reliability.

As such, cleaning depends on many factors. The August 2018 issue of SMT007 Magazine features the challenges, latest developments, and strategies for cleaning, and will help you decide whether to clean, or not clean your PCB assemblies.
