Gold plating thickness on gold finger | 7 October, 1999

Hi,

Does anybody know what is the minimum gold plating thickness on the PCB goldfinger required by the industrial specifications - IPC, Bellcore, etc. Where can I find the information? Appreciate for the help!

Thanks, Tony

How do you test it? | 8 October, 1999

Although I can specify it, is ther a way I can test in test (in house)to be sure it's as specified? I don't need it now. I'm thinking of when I will need it.

Thanks,

John
