HERNDON, VA – The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative announced publication of Lead-Free Electronics: iNEMI Projects Lead to Successful Manufacturing.
 
The book, published by Wiley-IEEE Press, is based on results of iNEMI’s six years of study into lead-free electronics, and covers implementation issues of Pb-free solder into board assembly, iNEMI says.
 
“The iNEMI book is the first practical, primary reference to cover lead-free solder assembly, as well as the analysis and reasoning behind the selection of tin-silver-copper as the recommended lead-free solder,” said Jim McElroy, iNEMI CEO. "Data from several large reliability studies, including rework on standard and large boards, demonstrated the manufacturability of the recommended solder.”
 
The book features chapters by industry experts on Pb-free processing and covers such topics as solder material properties, reliability testing, lead-free rework, and tin whisker mitigation strategies. 
 
The 472-page book sells for $99.95 and can be purchased through the Wiley-IEEE Press website at http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0471448877,miniSiteCd-IEEE2.html.
