Abstract:The effects of plating materials (Sn-10Pb, Sn-3.5Ag, Sn-3Bi, Sn-0.7Cu, and Au/Pd/Ni) on Cu leads on quad flat package (QFP) joints using a Sn-8Zn-3Bi solder were investigated. The joints with Sn-3.5Ag plating and Sn-8Zn-3Bi solder had the slowest growth rate of interfacial reaction layers and the highest strength. The Ag dissolution into the interfacial reaction layers causes this increased strength. The Sn-Ag plating is the best plating material for Cu leads among the five kinds of plating using Sn-8Zn-3Bi solder.
