Abstract

Previous attempts at wave soldering the tips of a module's "C" shaped pins have been unsuccessful. Even such things as placing a protective coating on part of the pin, or lowering the height of the wave solder, or changing belt speeds, have all produced the same unsatisfactory result, i.e. solder bridging between the tips of the pins.
