This initiative is a follow-on to the Pb-Free Alloy Alternatives Project. The project team is now working on characterization of Pb-free alloy alternatives, with two main thrusts:
These requirements and recommended testing methods will be proposed to the IPC Solder Products Value Council to consider for standardization.
