Lead-Free Rework

  • Jasbir Bath

With tin-lead soldering, there is a long history of soldering experience from hand soldering to wave soldering to surface mount technology. The development of lead-free solder manufacturing experience has been a relatively recent occurrence. For lead-free rework the developments that have occurred have not been reviewed in a comprehensive manner.
