Since the introduction of the RoHS legislation inthe threat of tin-whisker-related short circuit failure from pure tin finished components has remained a major concern within the high-reliability electronics manufacturing teia. In summary, as the standards had evolved, they had become increasingly definitive with regard to component-to-component spacing design rules.
Dr Ashworth stressed that these observations related to the particular proprietary electroplating chemistry used in the study, and that other commercial formulations might demonstrate different relationships between current density, deposit microstructure and whisker growth. One observation was that failure predominantly occurred at geiq edges of plates, where full coating thickness was not maintained around the right angle bend, and this geometry was a characteristic feature of component leads.
Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for h standards. The space environment presented particular challenges to electronic systems: On behalf of ESA, a working group led by Dr Dunn had produced a comprehensive set of guidelines for creating a lead-free control plan, which described the problems, requirements and methods relevant 0005 the preparation of a plan for companies to control against the use of lead-free components and to ensure that pure tin did not find its way into the manufacturing chain.
Tin Whisker Mitigation Methodologies: Report from SMART Group, Part 1
Although higher currents would cause instant burn-out, in high-vacuum conditions a short circuit could result in a plasma discharge. Upon reviewing these plans, several research consortiums and organizations embraced the plan and, to date, have addressed many of the technical needs although the significant effort of obtaining sufficient data to develop Pbfree reliability models still remains unanswered .
Charles Cawthorne then introduced Dr Mark Ashworth of Loughborough University, who discussed the effect of plating methodologies, the first of two presentations describing research carried out at Loughborough into mechanisms and strategies for tin whisker mitigation.

Each batch of eight boards was delivered to consortium partners for coating and returned to NPL for testing. Subscription pricing is determined by: But, because of RoHS gei, increasing numbers of components were only available with pure gei finishes. With a heavy dependence on COTS to maintain a competitive edge, the industry is heavily influenced by the commercial supply chain and its increasing use of Pb-free materials.
You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. While considerable progress has been made in closing Pb-free knowledge gaps, the challenge of characterizing performance and reliability still needs to be addressed. Remoteness and the inability to repair systems in situ obviously made the reliability issue even more critical, albeit for example Voyager 1 was still functioning after 39 years in operation. The factors influencing whisker growth were electroplating bath chemistry, whether pure tin or a tin alloy, bright or matte, electroplating parameters such as current density, temperature and agitation, bh substrate, taking copper, brass and alloy 42 as examples.

It was intended to continue ageing the test vehicles and review failures after a further six months, and to visually inspect the assemblies again after twelve months, also to build control assemblies to investigate the effect of temperature during coating. Martin Wickham reviewed previous findings and gave an update on current work. Although equipment designed to go into space was exempt from the RoHS Geoa, the reliability of space projects clearly depended on the integrity of PCBs, components and assembly processes.
An additional test vehicle had been designed, based on a PCB with 24 SOIC14 packages, assembled using range of techniques, to enable testing for short circuits between adjacent gela on individual component.
No, the group members do not all have curly hair! There had been a move away from component termination material type, structure and processing as specific mitigation strategies. If the document is revised or amended, beia will be notified by email. As Pb-free technology increasingly becomes the standard for electronic interconnects and finishes, engineers must cope with the various challenges posed by this material. Engineers will need to “act like engineers” in order to comprehend this information gfia apply it to their needs.
This Standard establishes processes for documenting the mitigating steps taken to reduce the harmful effects of tin finishes in electronic systems. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored.
Furthermore, the guide highlights Pb-free concerns, as they are encountered in the phases which generally reflect the product development cycle used by Aerospace, Defense, and High-Performance systems industries. This standard is applicable to Aerospace and High Performance electronic applications which procure equipment that may contain Pb-free tin finishes. But higher pulse frequencies could result in greatly accelerated whisker growth, which was believed to be favoured by fine grained columnar structures.

He showed several examples of actual failures, and other instances where feia had grown but not yet been detected electrically. Possible future work would investigate the effects of vibration and forced air cooling. The higher current densities tended to favour the formation of large eruptions, rather than filament whiskers. Some key resources include the following set of standards and handbooks developed for working with Pb-free materials in various electronics applications: Finishes to be avoided were silver, plated tin-copper, any tin plating over brass without a copper or nickel barrier, and bright tin.
Consequently, manufacturers of high-reliability electronics with RoHS exemption were left with no alternative but to manage tin-lead obsolescence by avoidance or mitigation. In a recent SMT survey, we asked the following question: Using the analogue of two sword-fencers for illustration, Wickham explained different failure modes: Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. Dr Dunn had collected data on whiskering effects over a period of 32 years, using the C-Ring test to introduce tensile and compressive stress, with different metal substrates, barrier layers and tin plating thicknesses, and egia results were shortly to be published.
Nine batches had been built to date, together with control assemblies with no coating, all of which had shown extensive whiskering before any evidence was seen on the coated examples.
