SMTA – What is a Good Solder Joint – How to Test Your Joints

November 2, 2020 @ 6:30 am – 8:00 am

Bob Willis


OEM and CEM electronics assembly companies buy components and printed circuit boards but they make solder joints, so they need to get it right first time. Design plays a key role in making a solder joint but how can we test them, what are the simple methods to give us confidence in our product or process? Over the years we have moved from through hole to surface mount and more recently to area array bottom less terminations. Each type needs to be tested in some way to compare alternative materials and processes and provided evidence to customers but also to control and monitor your process

Topics included in our webinar:

  • Solder joint test methods
  • Soldering standards
  • Component and pad design
  • Typical solder joint failures
  • Test standards and criteria
  • Impact of soldering materials
