 Hi Inge,
No 'used to be-—I think I still am.
If you read my resposes you find that I do not think much of this wt-% approach—and it has nothing to do with the impracticality of it after the fact.

Werner, 
 

You use to be a sound and practical guy. How on earth can you decide the 
volume %-age of the Au brittle phase content in solder joints. Only way is 
chemical analysis of some kind, but how do you know then the weight % of 
respective AuSn phase?

Hi Inge, 

How on earth did you find this gem? 

Not only does it say all that needs to be said to avoid Au-embrittlement, 
but it also points out the misgivings about 

ENIG which certainly have been experienced by many. 

Too bad, we have not heard from the 'Moon Man' in years—thank god we still 
get 'tuppence' from Brian.

Hi Thomas, 
 

The attached will have to do.

Hi Jon - the folks from Lockheed published a very good article on the 
 

impact of gold on solder joints including the calculations/material 
 

parameters/graphs that would be useful to you. Pull a copy of this 
 

article: "Effects of Gold Diffusion on a Near Eutectic Solder Joint", S. 
 


Enwright, Electronic Packaging & Production, June 1998, pp 68-72. Good 
 

Luck.

Does anyone have or know where to find the formula for determining the 
 

amount of percentage of gold in a SMT solder joint?  Appreciate any 
 

help, Jon
