Affrontare le sfide normative del REACH: La lista SVHC ed il suo impatto sul settore galvanico
In un mondo alla continua ricerca di alternative sostenibili, l’ecosistema della galvanica non rimane esente da cambiamenti e rinnovamenti.
Understanding REACH: The SVHC List and its Impact on Today’s Plating Industry
In a world that is constantly searching for sustainable manufacturing alternatives, the electroplating industry is no exception.
Electroless Nickel: How Low Can You Go?
Making Thin Electroless Nickel Deposits Work
When the thickness of any protective coating is reduced, two issues, porosity and chemical resistance, must be addressed. By looking at the whole picture, 1 micron of electroless nickel can provide the protection and low insertion loss required for 5G success.
Thin High Phos Electroless Nickel for 5G
With 5G rollouts around the globe, ENIG continues to hold on to first place in PCB final finishes. You would think with data published on how electroless nickel increases insertion loss, ENIG use would be declining. But there are a few reasons why the prophesized demise of ENIG has been premature.
For Immersion Silver, the Key to Success is controlling the process
The inherent nature of almost all immersion silver formulas did little to control the chemical reaction resulting in an aggressive attack of the copper. The consequence was field failures due to creep corrosion, champagne voids in soldering, and complete opens due to etching through of traces. To completely eliminate these issues requires a wholesale change of the formulation.
5G and Creep Corrosion - Does it Matter?
The short answer is, yes. But, as always, it's never that simple or devastating. First off, what is Creep Corrosion? It’s the growth of copper sulfide crystals on a PCB surface that, as shown in figure 1 (SMT 2007 R. Schueller), can create an electrical short.
