Useful as a training aid in the classroom, or on the shop floor, DRM-PTH-D contains computer generated color illustrations of component, barrel, and solder-side perspectives of a plated-through hole. Each drawing clearly shows the minimum acceptable condition for requirements such as land coverage, vertical fill, wetting of lead, land and barrel, and contact angle.DRM-PTH-D also contains high quality color microphotographs of the major solder defects and conditions, such as nonwetting, corrosion, projections, fractures, lead protrusion and disturbed joints, with pictures of both tin-lead and lead free solder joints. The appropriate specification / paragraph references from both the IPC-A-610D and J-STD-001D are included for each of the acceptance criteria for further verification. In addition, every change from the C to D revision has been notated to make it easy for your inspectors and operators to learn the new requirements. Quantity discounts available.
