Fatigue of solder joints under Leadless Chip Components (LCC),
such as chip resistors and capacitors, can influence long-term
reliability of electronic products operating in environments
with temperature cycling. This model allows the user to predict
the lifetime of leadless chip components accounting for
solder alloy (Sn63Pb37 or SAC305), Printed Circuit Board (PCB) material,
and use environment.
The calculations are performed using a strain energy based model
developed by DfR Solutions.
We're always interested to hear from users about both good and not-so-good
experiences using Sherlock. We take all feedback seriously and constantly strive
to make Sherlock easier to use, more accurate and more reliable. So, if you have
any comments to share with us, please feel free to send them using this form.
