What is an intermetallic compound? Which heat transfer methods are present at an infrared reflow oven process? How much is the resistance of an SMD with value code 101? These are only a few out of the 50 questions which were asked at the first online MELT-IMAPS Quiz Competition on Soldering Technology.
