Partial Au Plating

SPOT Au PLATING AND STRIPE Au PLATING

Although the gold price which is influenced by a lot of changes due to economic conditions greatly affects the value of Au plating products, to minimize the effect of such commodity price risk, we are proposing the gold-save partial Au plating for spot and stripe area onto the electronic parts like compact connector with low-profile and narrow pitch.

Spot Au plating is the ECO-FRIENDLY one which is able to reduce the valuable rare metal usage!
(There's actual achievement of 40% reduction of gold usage compared to stripe spec.)
Also, it can expect the protect efficiency of solder soaking up when parts implemented like below illustration.

 

PROTECT EFFICIENCY ILLUSTRATION WHEN IMPLEMENTED

Protection of the solder soak up forms the good fillet geometry
