But the real issue isn�t moisture lovers. Electrochemical failures are the result of contaminants residing on the surface of the laminate and /or components of your assembly. To create the reverse plating cell that produces electromigration, required components are: * Bias voltage * Moisture * Active ionic material. Increasing any one of the these required components will increase in electrochemical migration. BIAS VOLTAGE. The circuit design will produce a finished assembly with low risk for electrochemical failure. Halide residues are usually the root cause of dendritic growth.

Sn/Ag Terminations with Sn/Pb Solder

Jan 6, 2001 | paste the other day � whatever.] I�d still be nervous about silver GT 3. HARD PART - ELECTROCHEMICAL MIGRATION Over the years, silver has developed a bad rep because it migrates more than more commonly used materials [eg, copper, gold, nickel]. Not to say those other materials won�t migrate given the chance. Electrochemical Migration (ECM). An unplanned electrolytic plating process. A film of polar solvent, often water, on a substrate surface provides a path for current flow between points with a difference in electrical potential. The process "grows" metal fingers between two traces, causing a short. Methods for measuring / observing electrochemical migration are: * IPC-TM-650, 2.6.13 * EP&P, 10/99, p. 45
