The FAA and Pb-Free
The FAA has issued a nuanced memo that defines their position on Pb-free. They recommend familiarity with GEIA documents, a focus on five critical areas (solder joint reliability, tin whisker, repair, configuration, and obsolescence), and state that no avionic failures have been traced back to Pb-free finishes. Looking for assistance with tin whisker mitigation or lead free control plans (LFCP)? Contact Randy Schueller, email@example.com, for more information.
