Solder-Flux Bearing Lead (SBL) technology economically attaches
solder and flux to each contact lead. This enables the elimination
of costly and defect prone soldering methods, such as hand or wave
soldering as well as providing alternatives, without the limitations,
to intrusive reflow or press-fit. Our SBL connectors are soldered
using conventional SMT equipment and processes and without adding
any additional solder, solder paste or flux.
Our goal is to transition PCB assemblies requiring hand labor and/or
multiple soldering processes to a streamlined single or double sided
reflow process only.
