Is Component Testing Using the ROSE Test Practical?

In a previous article titled, It’s Time to Retire ROSE Testing, Mark and I discussed the basis for why ROSE testing should be retired as an industry “cleanliness or process control” test.  In this article we reemphasize our position by highlighting some work we presented at the 2017 SMTA International Conference comparing component cleanliness results from the Resistivity of Solvent Extract (ROSE) against Ion Chromatography (IC) results.

Stop being an ostrich, electronic component shortages are real

I know, I know, you don’t want to hear that the price of components are going up. Or that lead-times are extending by the day. And of course, that’s assuming the supply chain has been able to quote a lead-time in the first place.

No, it’s much easier to ignore all those e-mails and phone calls from your supply partner until they sort everything out and things are back to normal.

But I’m afraid I have some bad news.

Five Steps to Low Volume Build Nirvana
