- STEP 7: Soldering. Jackson, Gavin; Toleno, Brian // SMT: Surface Mount Technology;Aug2006, Vol. 20 Issue 8, p36
The article discusses the effects of using tin-silver-copper (SAC) alloys in soldering. SAC alloys produce solder joints with more voids than their tin or lead predecessors. It could heat up to 217 degrees Celsius, which makes it capable of releasing more volatile compounds and will possibly...
- Solder Paste Handling. // Circuits Assembly;Apr2003, Vol. 14 Issue 4, p20
The article provides 10 technology tips on ways to handle solder paste. If stirring paste in a jar, be very careful to stir gently with a folding action. For those living in warm climates, do not let a fresh shipment of paste get too hot by leaving it for too long on a hot loading dock. At low...
- Automating 0201 Rework. Czaplicki, Brian // Circuits Assembly;Apr2003, Vol. 14 Issue 4, p30
The article illustrates how to automate 0201 rework process. Next-generation designs for products in the consumer, medical and automotive markets will proliferate the growth of 0201 components due to their small size, low cost, low current and limited power dissipation. In addition, the...
- Strength and stressed state of asymmetric mechanically inhomogeneous welded joints with incomplete fusion at the center of the weld under biaxial loading. Ostsemin, A. // Strength of Materials;Sep2009, Vol. 41 Issue 5, p570
An approximate solution of the plane problem of the theory of plasticity for main pipelines, cylindrical vessels, and shell structures subjected to biaxial loading is proposed which allows one to perform theoretical analysis aimed at evaluation of strength and stressed state of asymmetric...
- Estimating microdamage tendencies from standard uniaxial stretching tests. Efimenko, L.; Konovalova, O.; Sarafanova, Ya.; Ivanova, Yu. // Chemical & Petroleum Engineering;Nov2006, Vol. 42 Issue 11/12, p720
Test results for several steels are presented on the tendency to microdamage in relation to the composition and structural state. A method is proposed that incorporates the tendency to microdamage in relation to the structural state of the main metal and of welded joints.
- Sleight of Hand. Reetz, Rudi // Printed Circuit Design & Manufacture;Jul2003, Vol. 20 Issue 7, p26
Presents an article about hand-screening of a soldermask test. Advantage of a little hand-screening table to demonstrate clearing of soldermask from holes in the developer; Opportunity posed by the basic hand-screening process.
