Title Electronics assembly technology - Part 3: Selection guidance of environmental and endurance test methods for solder joints
Project Number 22949
Abstract/Scope IEC 62137-3:2011 describes the selection methodology of an appropriate test method for a reliability test for solder joints of various shapes and types of surface mount devices (SMD), array type devices and leaded devices, and lead insertion type devices using various types of solder material alloys. This first edition cancels and replaces IEC/PAS 62137-3, published in 2008, and includes some editorial revisions. The main changes with respect to the PAS include the following:
- no technical changes;
- some editorial changes and corrections;
- for the sake of convenience some constitutive changes.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
