White Paper Discusses Key Considerations for Electronic Component Tin Whisker Mitigation

February 27, 2023

The phenomenon of tin whiskers in printed circuit board assembly is a failure mechanism associated with electronic devices that use lead-free solder alloys containing low melting point elements such as tin, cadmium, or indium. In this white paper, Circuit Technology Center discusses a number of critical considerations when using an automated robotic hot solder dip process to mitigate tin whiskers before circuit board assembly.
