The CE Analytics/Practical Components� Test Kit consists of: PCB test boards with Polyclad� FR-370HR laminate, various lead-free compatible pad finishes (ENTEK� PLUS� CU-106A, ENTEK� PLUS� CU-106A-HT and Alpha-LEVEL� Immersion Silver), industry standard lead-free dummy components (BGA, MLF, QFP, LQFP, SOIC, TSOP, SOT, and passives), ALPHA� OM-338 lead-free solder paste and ALPHA� Telecore + cored wire, and process application guidelines.
Does your Lead-free process meet industry standards? This program makes your transition to Lead-Free smooth by giving you a complete solution. The CE Analytics/ Practical Components� program is unique in that it not only offers you the materials and analysis but also the validation of your Lead-Free process before you go into production.
The CE Analytics laboratory services include:
1. Lead-Free Process Capability Validation comprised of:
�Macro and microscopic inspection and analysis of processed assemblies compared to IPC and J-STD requirements.
�Validation Report with recommendations for process optimization if applicable.
�CE Analytics Lead-Free Process Capability Validation Certificate.
2. Voiding Analysis
3. Macroscopic Examination of Processed Assemblies (non-destructive)
4. Microscopic Examination of Solder Connection Integrity.
Practical Lead-Free dummy components are exact mechanical equivalents of live components used only when the physical properties of the components are required. These components can cost as much as 80% less than live components making the ideal for testing of solder processes, machine setup and other process evaluations.
