IPC is a global trade association dedicated to the competitive excellence and fi nancial success of its member companies which represent all facets of the electronics interconnect industry, including design, printed circuit board manufacturing and electronics assembly.
It is common knowledge that SMD components such as QFP’s, BGA’s are sensitive to moisture however LED’s and ceramic capacitors are too. But printed circuit boards must also increasingly be treated as Moisture Sensitive Devices, in particular Multilayer, flex-rigid PCB and Flex circuit boards.
Laser soldering has established itself as a single soldering process in recent years and increasingly replaces conventional soldering processes. Nevertheless laser soldering is expensive and the large advantages of laser soldering also present disadvantages.
Tellurium copper, material with reduced oxidisation, easily cut. Responsible for the thermal conductivity of the soldering tip.
