Seeking Alternatives to Solvent Cleaning
Seeking Alternatives to Solvent Cleaning
We are currently using a mix of trichloroethylene and IPA for cleaning in the ratio of 10 to 90. We are looking to eliminate the use of trichloroethylene and request your input. The Assembly Brothers, Jim Hall and Phil Zarrow, share their insight.
Board Talk
Ask the Experts
How to Mask Areas During Conformal Coating
We have PCBs with contact pads for switches. We apply conformal but are having problems efficiently masking the contact pads.

Wearable Electronics & Big Data = High Volume, High Mix SMT
Wearable Electronics & Big Data = High Volume, High Mix SMT
This paper explores the conflicting requirements of achieving low cost while meeting high volume, high mix requirements.
Production Floor
New Generation of Transistors Based on Graphene
New Generation of Transistors Based on Graphene
A team of researchers has designed a new generation of transistor based on a ribbon of graphene with the thickness of a single atom.
Technology Briefing
Evaluation of New SMT Stencil Materials
Evaluation of New SMT Stencil Materials
This paper covers a study undertaken to quantify the effects of stencil materials on paste deposition in high volume production processes.
Analysis Lab
Low Cost Alternative to SAC Alloys
Low Cost Alternative to SAC Alloys
Paper discusses some new SAC alloy options, comparing performance to current low-cost options, and considers approaches to enhance the performance.
Materials Tech
Investigation into Lead-Free Low Silver Solder Wire for Electronics
Investigation into Lead-Free Low Silver Solder Wire for Electronics

Effect of Gold on Reliability of SnAgCu Joints
Effect of Gold on Reliability of SnAgCu Joints
This study addresses the effect of gold content on the reliability of tin-silver-copper solder joints, determining the acceptable level of gold in SAC305 solder joints.
Analysis Lab
Reliability of Tin Lead Solder vs. Lead Free Solder
Reliability of Tin Lead Solder vs. Lead Free Solder
The issue of tin-lead solder versus lead-free solder reliability and whether lead in solders used for circuit board assembly impacts the reliability.
