IC vs R.O.S.E. – The Proof is in the Data

Which testing provides the best results?
–Zach Papiez

Q: What solder fluxes were in use when ROSE was developed?
A: Rosin Fluxes were much more widely used than No Clean Resin Fluxes.
Q: Can ROSE be used on No Clean solder paste?
A: It potentially can but there is a chance it could break the hydrophobic barrier and unencapsulate the most active ionic contaminants
Q: What are standard contamination limits for IC Testing?
A: The standards are different from lab to lab and are often process dependent.
