Subject: Lead-free Solder Joint Reliability
Lead-free solder joints (RoHS initiativet)
Are these joints reliable for long-term operation taking into account the environment the equipment goes in (CO, CPE or Outdoor)?
Is the long-term reliability restricted to certain packaging styles (BGA, PLCC, TSOP etc.) or the board material (FR-4, ceramic)?
Are these devices free of hazardous substances reliable for long term.
