Pb free validation

Pb free validation | 23 February, 2006

My company is looking to run some small validation cards to verify our Pb free process for potential customers. Basocally, we'd like to print a small card, place some components, say 0402 to a small BGA, maybe some thru-hole stuff, and reflow it. So, what I'm hoping is that one of the paste manufacturers out there already has something like this where I can just buy their data and have the fabs and a stencil made up at my cost. Any thoughts?

As Russ say, you can buy kits from Practical components and make your tries, the send those pcb's to your solder paste vendor for analysis.I am using Senju Lead free solder and I send boards to them then they cut the board and analyze your solder conditions and they take pictures and give you a detail report.Hope this can help.

It does. I looked into the Cookson/P.C. kit, and it looks like a good deal. So, I'll go with that. (We're already running Pb free, but we'd like solid hard data for customers) Thanks all.
