The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) has announced the publication of “Lead-Free Electronics: iNEMI Projects Lead to Successful Manufacturing.” The book is published by Wiley-IEEE Press and is based on the results of iNEMI’s six-year study into lead-free electronics. The book provides coverage of the issues surrounding the implementation of lead-free solder into electronics assembly.
“The INEMI book is the first practical, primary reference to cover lead-free solder assembly as well as the analysis and reasoning behind the selection of tin-silver-copper as the recommended lead-free solder,” says Jim McElroy, iNEMI CEO. “Data from several reliability studies, including rework on standard and large boards, demonstrated the manufacturability of the recommended solder.
The book features chapters by leading industry experts on lead-free processing and covers topics such as solder material properties, reliability testing, lead-free rework, and tin whisker mitigation strategies.
The 472-page book (ISBN: 978-0-471-44887-7) sells for $99.95 and can be purchased through the Wiley-IEEE Press website.
