Hi We are experiencing different failure modes between leaded and lead free through hole assemblies. The boards are PTH. In the case of lead free boards
we are seeing fracturing of the component legs much earlier than we do with leaded assemblies. Note these are NOT joint failures but fracturing of component legs. Has anybody else noticed a similar effect and how have they resolved it.
Thanks in advance
