Used for solderability when the flatness of the pad is critical. ENIG has shelf life longer then 12 months.

- Hard Gold

Purpose: Used for Gold Fingers (minimum 30 micro inches), soldering (maximum 17 micro inches), to prevent oxidation and extend shelf life.

- Soft Gold

Purpose: Used for wire bonding (Ultrasonic minimum 2 micro inches/Thermasonic minimum 30 micro inches) and to prevent oxidation and extend shelf life.

Immersion Silver

Use for solderability purposes (2-10 micro inches). Used for solderability when the flatness of the pad is critical.

Lead Free Solder

Use for solderability purposes (2-5 micro inches). Used for solderability when the flatness of the pad is not critical.

OSP
