This initiative is a follow-on to the Pb-Free Alloy Alternatives Project. The project team is now working on characterization of Pb-free alloy alternatives, with two main thrusts:
These requirements and recommended testing methods will be proposed to the IPC Solder Products Value Council to consider for standardization.
The Project team is well into planning discussions on the follow-on effort. The list of possible activities has been narrowed to a handful, and the team is currently in the process of down selecting those judged to be of highest interest and value. The team is meeting weekly to identify the elements and finalize the SOW.
