Scope of UL PCB Silver Task Group
The UL/IPC Task Group was initiated at the IPC Orlando 2001 meeting. The task group IPC designation is 3-11g, "Metal Finishes Data Acquisition."
The group of circuit board manufacturers and chemical process suppliers discussed the increasing use of Silver as a PCB surface finish, and the emerging use of Silver in lead-free solders. It was noted that without clarification or adjustments to UL documentation there would be violation and misuse of the existing UL specifications. Click here to learn more about UL's announcement.
