The ionic contamination test, also known as ROSE Test (Resistivity of Solvent Extract), is an extractive analysis technique offered in ZESTRON’s Analytical Center, enabling the quantitative measurement of ionic contamination on an electronic board according to IPC-TM 650 2.3.25. Thus, initial risk evaluations conducted at an early stage can identify potential problems that may lead to future field failures.
Areas of application:
- First risk evaluation of field failures by quantitative measurement of the ionic contamination
- Proof of cleanliness after soldering according to guidelines
- Continuous quality control by regular sample measurements
- Can be used as a basis to define internal quality standards
For a more precise analysis, ion chromatography is available which provides both quantitative and qualitative ionic contamination measurements.
