Global Standards for the Microelectronics Industry
STANDARD TEST METHOD UTILIZING X-RAY FLUORESCENCE (XRF) FOR ANALYZING COMPONENT FINISHES AND SOLDER ALLOYS TO DETERMINE TIN (Sn) - LEAD (Pb) CONTENT
This document is intended to be used by Original Component Manufacturers who deliver electronic components and Original Equipment Manufacturers who are the platform system integrators. It is intended to be applied prior to delivery by the OCMs and may be used by OEM system engineers and procuring activities as well as U.S Government Department of Defense system engineers, procuring activities and repair centers. This Standard establishes the instrumentation, techniques, criteria, and methods to be utilized to quantify the amount of Lead (Pb) in Tin-Lead (Sn/Pb) alloys and electroplated finishes containing at least 3 weight percent (wt%) Lead (Pb) using X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) equipment.
