Subject: Solder Connection Reliability
Does anyone have information regarding the reliability of component to board solder connections in the following application? We are using ceramic cavity filters in our product, some of which may be up to 2.5" long. As these are soldered into a G-10 printed circuit board there is some concern regarding the expected reliability of the solder connections. Our product will be mounted in an outside, non-weatherprotected environment, in a variety of locations around the world, and possibly experience a range of temperature extremes between -30degC to +50degC in normal use.
