Poll Finds Solder Finish, BGA Components and Reflow Soldering Most Challenging for Industry Engineers

Jan 22, 2012 | More than 350 engineers who attended last week’s IPC webinar, Soldering and Assembly Defects, were polled on their biggest headaches with printed boards, PCB components and PCB assembly process failures. The survey results which identify solder finish, ball grid array (BGA) components and reflow soldering as the greatest challenges, provide webinar co-sponsor, National Physical Laboratory (NPL) of the United Kingdom with useful information as it prepares its NPL Process Defect Clinic for IPC APEX EXPO® 2012.
