soldering phosphor bronze pins to PCB

    Hi all,

    I'm not sure this is the good place where to post this, please advise a
    better NG in case it exists.

    I'm working on the soldering process of a component with phosphor bronze
    pins onto a fairly standard FR-4 multilayer PCB. The component is a
    light detector (MPPC: Multi Pixel Photon Counter) and I still do not
    know what is the amount of heat to deal with.

    Is there any recommendation on soldering this components on a pre-tinned
    pad?
    Anything special on thermal behavior which should be considered? For
    instance I have seen a power mosfet mounted without stress release on
    the soldering point on a the thru-hole one-sided pad that after several
    ON/OFF cycles caused the joint to crack.

    Any hint is appreciated.

    Al

    This is a pretty low volume group. You are likely to have better luck
    over in sci.electronics.design, so I'll cross-post over to there. There
    are some photon pushers that hang around s.e.d regularly, as well as
    numerous designers and prototype builders who might have experience with
    a similar part.

    Of course, if there's a specific part number or datasheet link that you
    could post, that would help to narrow the focus.

    (Follow-ups set to s.e.d)
