Rudolf Strauss, “SMT Soldering Handbook, 2Edition”
Newn-es 1998 | ISBN-10: 0750635894 | 400 Pages | File kind: PDF | 2,1 mb
Surface Mount Technology has had a profound influence on the electronics business, and has led to the use of new materials, techniques and manufacturing processes. Since the initial edition of this book was written, electronic assemblies have continued to turn out to be still smaller and much more complex, although soldering still remains the dominant connecting method. This is really a comprehensive guide to present methods of soldering components to their substrates, written by of the founding fathers of the technology. It also covers component placement, the post-CFC technology of cleaning after soldering, along with the principles and methods of high quality control and rework. New sections deal with Ball-Grid-Array (BGA) technology, lead-free solders, no-clean fluxes, along with the present standard specifications for solders and fluxes.
Dr Rudolf Strauss has spent most of his working life with a leading manufacturer of solders and fluxes. He was responsible for numerous innovations such as the concept of wave soldering, and for a lot of years has been active as lecturer, consultant, and technical author.
His book explains the principles of soldering and surface mount technology in practical terms and plain language, totally free from jargon. It’s addressed to the man, or woman, who has to do the job, but it’ll also be of support in planning manufacturing method and in making buying decisions relating to consumables and equipment.
