Profiles for soldering reflow of HFC-4S
The recommended profiles for soldering reflow of HFC-4S / HFC-8S for Pb-free assembly as well as Sn-Pb eutectic mainly correspond to the commonly applied JEDEC Standard JSTD-020C. To ensure best surface mounting quality, it is recommended to use the provisions of Pb-free assembly. The soldering profile graph (1.) and table (2.) underneath illustrate the respective soldering reflow.
Surface mount products may have a crack when thermal stress is applied during surface mount assembly if they have absorbed atmospheric moisture. It is recommended that these products are handled under specific conditions.
These conditions are described in the following handling recommendations in table (3.).
