Tin whisker growth mitigation by using nickel oxide sublayers
Project ID: D2018-36Background Metal whiskering is a problem with electrical devices in which the metal, such as tin, suffer from compressive stress or high work functions and grow hair-like structure that extend from the metal. This causes circuit shorts and electrical failures. Current solutions require the use of lead or conformal coatings to m...
