Improvements are achieved in solderability for the old Plated-Through-Hole PTH Technology. The Military Specifications, general rules, and attitudes required to achieve solderable leads are in place with a majority of manufacturers. This paper describes the status of lead solderability quality for PTH assemblies, and what must be done stay on the right track and to maintain the momentum developed at much effort and expense. In the future, Surface Mount Technology SMT will certainly be predominant. This paper covers the potential pitfalls in SMT applications.
