Factors Affecting Print Quality of SMT Solder Paste

In the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) assembly process, the most important part is the deposition of solder paste on the board. The aim of the process is to deposit an accurate amount of solder [...]

Solder Bridge Challenges During PCB Assembly

Solder bridges aka shorts have become more challenging to deal with for those who fabricate or manufacture printed circuit boards.  A solder bridge or short occurs when a solder is [...]

A Sticky Situation

The surface tension of liquidus solder exerts a considerable pulling force on a component during reflow. This is why, once upon a time, small components could be relied on to self-align on SMT [...]
