Paper Abstract

The electronic industry is now going through a difficult period. The companies must cut costs, regroup and innovate. Environmentally friendly production from cradle-to-grave can be an essential element of future manufacturing trends. Recognizing leaf-free technology implementation it is necessary to consider the following elements: solder, printed circuit board and component finish or assembly technology. In the paper, the [hysical properties of chosen Pb-free solders were presented. There were analyzed the advantages and disadvantages of two PCB assembly methods: lead free soldering and gluing by condictive adhesive. The comparison of electrical and mechanical properties of joints made by Pb-free solders and two types of conductive adhesives were presented too. It was concluded that the exploitation parameters of joints made by Pb-free solders are proper for PCB assembly. Conductive adhesives may replace solders in these applications were the low value of joint resistance is not critical.
