ion chromatography (IC) - what you can expectPrecise Breakdown of Contamination
Ion chromatography enables precise analysis of ionic contamination on circuit boards and assemblies. This method provides the following information:
The type of ions responsible for the contamination
The exact quantity of each ion
The quality of the contamination composition
An estimation of the origin and hazard potential of the contamination
For example, the presence of salts of weak organic acids on flux residues on the assembly can indicate specific causalities. Such conclusions can potentially be made for many ions relevant to electronic manufacturing.
The correct interpretation of found ions and knowledge of their interactions can allow for detailed inferences about the origin of the contamination.
Our application engineering experts can answer how this may affect your manufacturing, processing, or cleaning processes and suggest appropriate remedies.
