Related to solder: silver solder

sol·der

(sod'ĕr),
1. A fusible alloy used to unite edges or surfaces of two pieces of metal of higher melting point; hard solders, usually containing gold or silver as their main constituent, are usually used in dentistry to connect noble metal alloys.
2. To join two pieces of metal with such an alloy.
[L. solido, to make solid, through Fr., various forms]

When purchasing solder it is important to understand the differences between lead and lead-free options.
To study further the potential of Sn-0.7Cu 0.05Ni solder alloy, there is a need to assess its corrosion behaviour as it is an important factor to consider in formulating new solder materials [16].
By adding nanosized [Y.sub.2][O.sub.3] to the Sn-58Bi solder, it could be found that the spread area of the composite solder alloy was increased by 20% from 30 [mm.sup.2] to 36 [mm.sup.2] and then declined to 32 [mm.sup.2] with the addition of [Y.sub.2][O.sub.3] nanoparticles added from 0 to 3.0 wt.% [35].
The highest value of the ultimate strength of 196 MPa reached Zn-Al4 solder and the lowest Rm reached ZnAl1 solder.
The inventor of the All-In-One Hander Solder Gun previously developed a working prototype that was utilized with success for a period of time.
Abstract: Solder balls in 300pm-pitch BGA packaging were fabricated by stencil-printing solder paste and then reflowed at high temperature.
Efficient heat transfer ensures that the solder material melts, forms a joint, and solidifies [2].
But, when it comes to fine pitch application, solder balls have the tendency to agglomerate between the neighboring electrodes resulting short circuit.
If you find one, first remove the blob of old solder with desoldering braid (from an electronics store) or an old piece of lamp cord (Photo 1).
The Patriots and Solder, the team's first-round draft pick, finally came to terms on a four-year contract, and the rookie, wearing No.
Since most surface mount components are small in size and weigh on the order of grams, the inherent strength of the solder pads on which they are affixed was never a serious concern.
