PWB Assembly Process Simulation for Evaluation of Electronic Components

Will the components work with your process? That determination is the goal of these manufacturing process simulations; to ensure that components chosen meet expected reliability requirements after exposure to factory processes. This document specifically addresses preconditioning of components. Developed for users and manufacturers, the procedure consists of a set of simulations for IC component storage and use, wave and reflow soldering (SMT and PTH parts), exposure to corrosive (water soluble) fluxes and exposure to often-used cleaning materials.
