PIHR Component Guidelines
 

Through hole components that are subjected to reflowe have to meet certain mechanical requirements if they are to be reliable, and they should meet our six-point checklist if they are to be subjected to reflow temperatures between 215-250C. Connectors are the obvious candidates for pin in hole reflow; however, with good design practice there are many other parts that can be successfully soldered with this cost-effective process.

Topics will include:
- Package design for assembly
- Temperature stability
- Pin shape
- Pin plating
- Packaging
