IPC-9709: Test Guidelines for Acoustic Emission Measurement during Mechanical Testing
Surface mount pad cratering typically initiates prior to detection by existing electrical monitoring test methods. There are limited instrumentation techniques that are currently available that can identify non-electrical damage and its location to a high degree of accuracy. This guideline document establishes an acoustic emission (AE) method to evaluate the performance and reliability of surface mount attachments of electronics assemblies during mechanical loading. 11 pages. released 2013.
