Now updated to Revision G of the latest IPC-A-610 industry standard for the Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, this Training & Reference Guide illustrates critical acceptance criteria for the evaluation of through-hole solder connections.
With only 30 pages and a compact 5.5 x 8.5 inch (14 x 21.5 cm) size, these convenient spiral-bound manuals make it easy for your inspectors and operators to make the right solder joint acceptance decisions for all three classes of product.
Useful as a training aid in the classroom, or on the shop floor, DRM-PTH contains computer generated color illustrations of component, barrel and solder-side perspectives of a plated-through-hole. Each drawing clearly shows the minimum acceptable condition for requirements such as land coverage, vertical fill, wetting of lead, land and barrel and contact angle.
DRM-PTH-G also contains high quality color microphotographs of the major solder defects and conditions such as nonwetting, corrosion, projections, fractures, lead protrusion and disturbed joints with pictures of both tin-lead and lead free solder joints. The appropriate specification/paragraph references from the IPC-A-610G are included for each of the acceptance criteria for further verification.
