Before the quality of a soldered joint can be evaluated, the components that are required for the formation of a good soldered joint should be reviewed. These components are solder, applied heat, and solderable surface. This article discusses each of these as well as the end-use requirements and joint configurations required for the formation of a good soldered joint. It focuses on the visual, automatic, and destructive inspection techniques for determining overall joint quality.
