Introduction of lead-free removal alloy in SMD removal kit addresses increasing global demand to eliminate lead from semiconductor industry
SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 10, 2002 - Emulation Technology, Inc. (ET), the industry’s leading manufacturer and marketer of Adapters, Sockets and Interconnect Solutions introduces the Chip Quik® Lead-Free SMD Removal Kit.
The Chip Quik® Lead-Free SMD Removal Kit is designed to assist engineers in SMT rework and removing surface mount devices (SMDs). The Chip Quik® removal method requires no expensive removal equipment, encouraging easy removal of QFPs, PLCCs, SOICs and other SMD chip components at safe, low temperatures under 300°F.
The Lead-Free SMD Removal Kit makes the removal process surprisingly simple. The kit's rework flux is applied to all pins and then a low temperature soldering iron is used to melt the lead-free Chip Quik® removal alloy that reacts with the existing solder to maintain a molten state. Once this is done, the SMT device can be easily removed using a vacuum pen.
"The Chip Quik method for SMD removal is unmatched in terms of quick removal, preventing damage, and ease of clean-up," says Emulation Technology President Joseph Bagliere. "If you factor in our ability to provide this kit with lead-free removal alloy, we have a solution that we are very excited about. Looking at the lead-free policy developments by The European Council Directive, the Japanese Ministry of International Trade and the U.S. EPA, we are pleased to be able to meet the needs of our customers and direct our efforts to assist in the growing global demand to eliminate lead from the industry."
