Performance Testing for Aerospace and High Performance Electronic Interconnects Containing Pb-free Solder and Finishes

This document defines: 1 A default method for those companies that require a pre-defined approach and 2 A protocol for those companies that wish to develop their own test methods. The default method (Section 4 of the document) is intended for use by electronic equipment manufacturers, repair facilities, or programs which, for a variety of reasons, may be unable to develop methods specific to their own products and applications. It is to be used when little or no other information is available to define, conduct, and interpret results from reliability, qualification, or other tests for electronic equipment containing Pb-free solder. The default method is intended to be conservative, i.e., it is biased toward minimizing the risk to users of AHP electronic equipment.

Requirements for Using Solder Dip to Replace the Finish on Electronic Piece Parts

This standard defines the requirements for fully replacing undesirable surface finishes using solder dip. Requirements for qualifying and testing the refinished piece parts are also included. This standard covers the replacement of pure tin and Pb-free tin alloy finishes with SnPb finishes. This dipping is different from dipping to within some distance of the body for the purposes of solderability; solder dipping for purposes other than full replacement of pure tin and other Pb-free tin alloy finishes are beyond the scope of this document. It covers process and testing requirements for robotic and semi-automatic dipping process but does not cover purely manual dipping processes, due to the lack of understanding of the appropriate requirements for hand-dipping for tin whisker mitigation at this time. This standard does not apply to piece-part manufacturers who build piece parts with a hot solder dip finish.

Technical Guidelines for Aerospace and High Performance Electronic Systems Containing Lead-free Solder and Finishes

This document is intended for use as technical guidance by Aerospace system suppliers, e.g., Aerospace system Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Aerospace system maintenance facilities, in developing and implementing designs and processes to assure the continued performance, quality, reliability, safety, airworthiness, configuration control, affordability, maintainability, and supportability of high performance aerospace systems (subsequently referred to as AHP) both during and after the transition to Pb-Free electronics. This document is intended for application to aerospace products; however, it may also be applied, at the discretion of the user, to other products with similar characteristics, e.g., low-volume, rugged use environments, high reliability, long lifetime, and reparability. If other industries wish to use this document, they may substitute the name of their industry for the word “Aerospace” in this document.
