2、 PCBA General Appearance Inspection Specification

1. The wetting angle between the fillet weld with poor contact angle of the welding spot and the graphic end joint of the pad is greater than 90 °.

2. Upright: one end of the component leaves the bonding pad and is inclined or upright.

3. Short circuit: solders between two or more solder joints that should not be connected are connected, or solder joints are connected with adjacent wires.

4. Empty soldering: that is, the component lead and PCB solder joints are not connected by soldering tin.

5. False soldering: the component lead and PCB solder joint appear to be connected, but they are not actually connected.

6. Cold welding: solder paste at the solder joint is not completely melted or metal alloy is not formed.

7. Less tin (insufficient tin): the tin area or height between the component end and the PAD does not meet the requirements.

8. Too much tin (too much tin): the tin area or height between the component end and the PAD exceeds the requirements.

12. Reverse polarity (reverse direction): reverse polarity of polar components or polarity inconsistent with the requirements of documents (BOM, ECN, component location map, etc.).

13. Floating height: there is a gap or height between components and PCB.

14. Wrong parts: the specification, model, parameter, shape and other requirements of components are inconsistent with (BOM, samples, customer data, etc.).

15. Tin tip: the solder joints of components are not smooth, and the solder tips are stored.

16. Multiple parts: According to BOM, ECN or template, the parts that should not be pasted or have redundant parts on PCB are multiple parts.

17. Missing parts: According to BOM, ECN or sample plate, the parts that should be mounted on the position or PCB but not on the PCB are short.

19. Open circuit (open circuit): PCB circuit is disconnected.

20. Side placing (side standing): Side placing of pieces with different width and height.

21. Inverted (reversed): the two opposite sides of the component are interchangeable (such as the side with silk screen mark and the side without silk screen mark are upside down), and sheet resistance is common.

22. Tin bead: small tin point between component pins or outside PAD.

23. Bubbles: There are bubbles in solder joints, components or PCBs.

24. Tin loading (tin climbing): the tin eating height of component solder joints exceeds the required height.
