Soder Paste Testing | 30 August, 2006

Our facility in Asia wants to change their solder paste to a local manufacturer. I have recieved specs for this paste and compared to our existing paste spec, there is not really much difference in material composition. The Asia spec tests the paste to JIS Z 3284 where as we are used to J-STD-004, J-STD-005 (IPC-TM-650)and Bellcore GR-78. My qustion is , does anyone have any knowledge of the JIS spec and how it compares to the testing criteria we are more used to?

Phil Zarrow published a paper on solder paste test methods a few years ago. Check his site: http://www.itmconsulting.org

We have no relationship, nor receive benefit from the company referenced above.
