Bittele Electronics' selective soldering process uses a fountain of molten solder to pinpoint individual leads.
December 2, 2019 - Bittele Electronics, with facilities in Canada, The United States, and China, has an ability to perform "selective soldering" on through-hole mounted components to target individual pins as opposed to exposing the entire PCB to a wave soldering process. As described on the Bittele website, selective soldering is used on assemblies where through-hole components are distributed across the PCB, as opposed to a high density connector pin array where applying a single blob of solder (using a "fountain" stream - see image to the right) would be difficult. In some instances both wave soldering and selective soldering is used. Since the vast majority of printed circuit assemblies use surface mounted components, selective soldering and/or wave soldering is performed first for through-hole component, and then surface mount components are added and a solder reflow pass bonds them to the PCB. Selective soldering allows through-hole components to be safely soldered even after the reflow process has been completed. Read more on the "Bittele's Selective Soldering Capabilities" webpage.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
