HERNDON, VA -- The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) reported that a majority of its OEM and EMS members strongly support unique part numbers for BGA components to differentiate any lead-flee ball metallurgies other than SAC 305 or SAC 405, including low silver, added dopants such as nickel, and other SAC (or non-SAC) alloy compositions.
Many suppliers are moving away from SAC 305/405 ball metallurgies in order to improve the ability to survive mechanical shock (e.
