Majority of the respondents in our survey answered that reliability is the biggest impact of low-temperature soldering on PCBAs. Issues they highlighted include the strength of the solder joints, "uncooked" solder, insufficient solder, and solder not adhering properly, to name a few. However, they did note that once the process becomes mainstream, proven and an industry standard, they expect low-temperature soldering to result to higher quality PCBAs.

Components continue to shrink in the SMT world, and the next evolution of passive components includes m03015 (009005) and m0201 (008004). The m03015 and the m0201 components will see primary adoption in products that require further miniaturization, which would be SiPs. These modules would then be assembled into products through attachment, another assembly, or via other interconnect methods. This article explores the development of an assembly process (SMT only) for the m03015 component.
