Ionic Contamination Test

ionic contamination

Ionic contamination testing (ROSE Test) is an extractive analysis technique, enabling the quantitative measurement of ionic contamination on electronic boards according to IPC TM 650-2.3.25. With this test, it is possible to conduct a first risk evaluation, because of detecting problems leading to field failures at an early stage. For a more precise resolution, more complex techniques such as the ion chromatography are available. This service provides both quantitative and qualitative ionic contamination measurements.

Areas of application:

  • First risk evaluation of field failures by quantitative measurement of the ionic contamination 
  • Proof of cleanliness after soldering according to guidelines
  • Continuous quality control by regular sample measurements
  • Can be used as a basis to define internal quality standards
